And all for free!
We have done it! You can also do.
Tell people about your company and its story. People love and always remember a good and funny story. Take our example: my husband, Stephen came home one day with a wooden crate of wine and told me: "I think I'm going to make a pet feeder from this for our dog ..." I gave him an infidel gaze and asked: "do you have to take your pills today?"....
When I saw the finished product ...I was amazed at how sensational, unique and beautiful handmade came the feeder, I immediately asked him to sell them.
Stephen came up with the name "whiner and Diner" (appropriate and clever!): our company was born. Now, we just had to promote and get to be noticed ... even though our advertising budget was almost nonexistent after a bit of research to do, we discovered that there are many free ways to promote a business.
