Almost everyone I know is online, it only makes sense that you would be too. The internet is a great way to draw attention to your business.
Since you are online, and have website start a Facebook, and Twitter account. It might be a good idea to look into other social media networks as well. It’s a great way to reach people in your community, as well as others. Setting up Twitter and Facebook is free, and it will give you an easy way to interact with customers on a more personal level.
You can run a contest for your loyal fans, and give others a reason to follow you on your social media outlets. This is a great way to reach new people who you may not have reached otherwise.
You should consider having business cards made so you have something to hand out while you are out and about.
Banners, signs, car magnets
It also might be worth getting some type of car magnet, sign, or banners designed for your business. I personally think adding a magnet to your car or truck is a great way to get your brand out there in the public eye, but you want to have a catchy design that is easily connected to your brand. Be sure your banner design is something that sticks out, and is easily noticed.
