I have a business that I have been running for a few years now, but I am finding myself in a rut. I am looking to expand and increase yet I am unsure of how to market it. My business is a niche market and has appeal, everyone I tell about it says "wow that sounds like a great business" yet, I am having a hard time finding potential clients.
Any and all advice would be appreciated...  Thank you. Christina Erickson

    Hello Craig-
    Thank you very much for your suggestions. I appreciate the straight forward opinions.
    You have pointed out things that I haven`t even thought of.
    Looks like I have some work to do

    Thanks for mentioning the information about an ad on the Start Up Nation Marketplace. I did this when I first joined and since things have changed for me, so it reminded me to go in and revise the listing.

    First, congratulations on being a business owner and entrepreneur!  Sounds like you have been in operation for a couple of years and are experiencing what most of us have already been through in our growth potential.  I would highly recommend that you think outside the box in your niche market and utilize the internet for marketing potential, if you have not done so already.  For example, social marketing of forums, blogs and networking/marketplaces may be a great resource of advertising but most brick and mortar establishments are not aware of.  (Have you posted on YouTube, FaceBook and/or Twitter?  If not, would recommend it).
    My business partner and I (both attorneys and entrepreneurs) have released a FREE 60-page interactive guide as to how to start, operate and grow your business in today`s web 2.0 world which provides you with tons of helpful suggestions.  This guide has been recommended by more than a dozen government agencies given its content.  Check it out and let me know your thoughts.
