Hello everyone,
My name is Regina and i am also new to start up nation. I have a concierge business that I am trying to get up and running. www.twoextrahandz.com but I am having a little troubble with advertising. I am not sure which way would be the best way to get my name out there. I have been doing this for a while but only for family and friends at no charge. so i have decided why should i be giving my services for free why not turn this into a business.
So if anyone can give me some pointers on the best way to advertise as well as creating a news letter.
Any idea would be wonderful
Thank You

    I would say your target market is moms living in an afluent household.  You`ll want to bring your services to them.  Let them know what you do and how you can help them to make their lives easier!
    You`ll need to get your URL infront of them.  You could go gorilla and place flyers on the back sides of bathroom doors in corporate offices near you.  Possibly flyers on car windshields (check local laws).
    You could also send mail directly to people matching your profile. 
    You could work with the people you`ve helped for free and get referals..
    Depends on your budget, but define a target market and think of ways to get to them.
    Best of luck and welcome!
