          Hi Spotless_mom,

          Congratulations on your new business. I have just started my business as well, and have done all the things you have. I think that you can advertise your business in blogs, calling companies, people's homes just to let them know that your company exists. Believe me I have call companies to let them know I exist and they start asking me questions about my business. I have secured two clients by just calling and not to mention I started my company this past month. I hope this helps. Good luck!

            Congrats!! There are some very good marketing plans out there, but let me let you in on a little secret... if you try preparinig a business plan, you'll find that will get you started. Much like when a writer has writer's block, overcomes the block by writing a journal. Try it. Google business plans or even marketing plans.

            If you are also looking for cash to spend on advertising and hiring more employees, you can get it without borrowing a penny. Your business would make an ideal candidate for the grant money offered by the governement and its completely free to you. You can find out more about it on businessformationgroup.com/grants But you are correct, you should have a plan together and the marketing plan is just one part of the business plan, so you might as well do that too.

            Good luck.
