Looks anywhere to advertise your business. I've done great with advertising online, but also look at small towns in your state for newspaper ads. Large newspapers usually costs alot, but if you find small towns or cities you can usually find the prices reasonable. Also, some places like restaurants use paper placements that local business's use to place a business card ad on.

AND look for some unique ideas on getting your name out:
Sponsor something..... there are tons of things:
* an event at a school or daycare
* an expo
* a dance, cheerleading or sports team
* a work out place
Approach places that my not even HAVE sponsorships offered and offer something.
People, especially work at home moms, need to think OUTSIDE THE BOX, to really get noticed. Especially when there are so many others that might be in the same company or doing the same type of business.

Thanks for the advice. I have done work at home before, but what I did either sold itself or I jsut was not into it. I am really trying to make what I am doing now work.

I have always had luck advertising in the small newspapers. People actually read them sometime cover to cover.

Great ideas. Also alot of the freebie papers are great sources, the NickleAds and such. Check with your local Chamber of Commerce to see if you can be added to the next newsletter. Craftfairs are a great place to go and pass out cards or brochures. Or have a booth for displays. The same with Flea Markets.

Chamber of Commerce is another great idea. Try to join groups. Just like Mom's Network.

Many of the Homeschooling networks and moms clubs have a monthly newsletter to send out to members These are usually very nominal, and the members keep the newsletter as an ongoing resource.

When I make out my bills or buy things like at home parties, the kids fundraisers, etc. I always slip a business card inside the envelope. Also, after you attend someones home party, before everyone leaves, hand them a Business card.
A friend of mine writes her URL on money. But I feel this could get into the wrong hands ever since the law where we have to have our address on our sites now. So if you have a physical address, this may not be a good idea.
