Make flyers, brochures and business cards and post them around town. Post them in coffee shops. Ask physicians, dentists and other service providers if you can leave them for their clients. Post them on community boards and in places of worship.
Use your own products and use them blatantly. Don’t hesitate to share the swag. Help your customers promote you by offering them conversation pieces. For example, a nice tote bag with your business name on it can help spread the word. Also the happier your customers are, the more likely they will be to spread the word.
Partner with other direct sales consultants and promote each other. You can even have double parties.
Participate or host charity drives or fundraisers. Donate a portion of your profits to charity.
Consider offering customers rewards for referring new customers. Maybe they receive a free product or credit on their next purchase. Additionally, offer incentives for referring a party host.
