I hand out cards to people any chance I get. I cold call boutiques to get my wholesale accounts.

I have a FB page, but not really much interaction going on and most fans are friends anyway.

I make sure that I always put bows and flowers on my daughter that way people always comment and I tell them I sell them. Also, always make sure you have them with you if you go to a Peditrician with your children.

networking is very important for me! I have FB that are not friends since I opened up in May, and I have never done a photo contest or anything yet... I am hooking up with other businesses, promoting them and having them promote me also. Getting on a blog is a good idea also because they may reach an audience that may not have ever found your stuff by other means. I have not done any local advertising, most of my sales are online.
The BEST way to promote your business is quality products and good service. Word of mouth will do the promoting for you.

Facebook Fan page, networking with other businesses on there has really increased my fan base, not astronomically, but an increase nonetheless.

I've gotten 2 wholesale accounts that way and have networked with some great resources too.

I've joined some blogs as well and hoping that will generate some traffic.

I do a secret facebook fan sale every Friday, basically a giveaway because I can't generate coupon codes on paypal, so I usually do a BOGO or free gift with purchase. I've done some free shipping promos too.

I put a bow in my daughters hair everyday at school - bows that match her outfits - then the other moms ask where I got her bow then I get orders!! Then they tell their friends and they tell their fans and so on and so on. With every order I fill - I put 4-5 business cards in them so they can have them to pass on.
