              Hi and welcome Wan2005,


              A face-to-face visit to a facility is often a good way to meet and let the facility know what you have to offer. Make an appointment and go to the appointment with your brochures and other information to let the potential customer know all about you.  It takes time and a lot of leg-work but will pay off in the end many times.


              I'm sure others will chime in with their suggestions, too.

              Hello everyone,


              I have a culinary background and I own a blog. My business is in catering and writing about the latest trend in food, especially cupcakes.


              My business is still small and I like working within the local community. Since I recently moved, getting my new business established has been challenging, but I believe it will be worth it.


              I look forward to talking with other entrepreneurs as we share tips with each other on how to help our businesses grow. I look forward to connecting with all of you.

I do most of my advertising with word of mouth, but I am looking for it to grow, ran into the expensive way to advertise anymore. you can take a look at what I do from my Facebook page (I O S Graphics). I support small businesses and personal use for events or your special days and holidays. I'm looking forward to the journey in this life time.
