Have a Party

One of the best ways to introduce or reintroduce your WAHM business is to have a party. Before you start the excuses of I don't know anybody, my house is too small, I am not good with people, or anything else you can think of, be open to the idea.
Don't know anybody? Pass out mini flyers and do an open house. Everyday you have an opportunity to meet new people. If you don't get out normally, find a reason. Go get a coffee, go for a walk, go window shopping.
House too small, hold it in your front yard. Have a few tables set up with product, serve punch, lemonade, and water, cupcakes cookies, fruit. Have brochures and business cards available everywhere. Put together a gift basket and have a raffle for those who attend. Have balloons to not only attract people to where you are but also give to the kids. Have coloring pages printed out for the kids. Make it fun. This is perfect on a Saturday afternoon with all the yard sales during the warm weather. Have extra inventory on hand for cash and carry. Everyone who visits give them a brochure and business card. Don't let anyone go without one. Have a jar of dog treats so anyone passing by walking their dog, offer a treat. This gives you a chance to give them a brochure and business card as well.
Don't have a yard? Hold a party at a park. Check with your local parks and rec but most have no issue with this as long as you are not bothering anyone. As they say where there is a will there is a way. Find your way and wow your new customers.
Get together with other WAHMs in your area and have a WAH fair. Reserve your church banquet hall, parks and rec hall, your apartment complex meeting rooms.
There are several options available. Just think outside the box and give your business a proper introduction.

Great post! I've been thinking about doing this myself - but my house really IS too small, lol. I was thinking of doing it at Panera (they let you use the conf room for free) or if I could find a nice park in the area with a Gazebo that would allow me to use it, that would be even better!!
