You all know that hubby and I have recently started our own small business…North Country Rustics. It should come to no surprise to anyone that I consider myself pretty handy. I have marginal art skills, marginal tool skills, a pretty creative mind, and a real desire to “create”. I also boast some pretty good computer skills. Yet I feel completely lost when it comes to really getting my business off the ground. I’ve sold some items but mostly to family and friends…I’d really like to branch out into “real” customers. To do that I’ve created the usual “free” advertisements: Blog, Facebook page, Business Cards, Flyers, and Brochures. But the real question is does any of it really work? Would love your advice on how to grab some real customers. Actually, I’d love any advice at all…Please feel free to share!
