Getting customers for any new business takes time. You must let people know that you are available and complete information about your services. The first step should be friends and family. Everyone you know is or knows a potential customer, but only if they know you are in business. Use email, facebook, twitter, letters, postcards, phone calls, whatever method works best for the person you are contacting. Don’t send out mass messages as people tend to ignore them. It takes much more time to personalize each message but you have a better chance of having it read. Spend some time getting the message out to everyone you know before you start advertising for customers. You may be pleasantly surprised by the amount of business generated by these efforts.
