Ignore or omit any one of these tips at your own risk and peril.

  1. Tell your co-workers, friends and family.

    Whether you are subtle or not, make sure they know about your home business as long as it won't get you in trouble with the boss. You'd be surprised at how many will admire and envy you for starting something, and you would become a source of inspiration. Heck, you might even get one or more business partners this way.

  2. Tell your neighbors.

    You see them almost everyday walking the dog, jogging, going to work or watering the grass. Strike up a conversation at the opportune time and let them know what you're up to.

  3. If you sell handmade crafts...

    check the newspapers, your local small business center or City Hall to find out when and where the next town craft show will be, and how to sell your goods at it.

  4. Check your local strip malls and...

    shopping centers to see if you can set up a table to sell your wares in front of a major retailer such as a supermarket or department store.

  5. Check your local malls...

    to see how much it would cost to setup a table or kiosk inside the mall.

  6. If your town has regular flea markets

    That would be a great place to setup a booth.

  7. And finally, don't forget to advertise in your local newspaper...

    and online ad sites such as Craigslist and backpage.com.
