Ask your question
  • Get into as many local directories as you can. And get a website developer to use the right keywords to make sure you turn up in google searches.

  • Do you have a facebook page? If not I would create one and get friends and relatives to share it.

  • Facebook for starters. Gumtree too. Then there’s always the old fashioned pin up boards at shopping centres, childcare centres, local council.

  • Your own website and facebook page would be a good places to start.

  • Make a Facebook page offering your services!
    You could even do competitions & offer discounts as prizes if people like & share your page to get your fan base built up.
    Many communities have Buy Swap & Sell pages you could ask about posting on there.
    Community boards in your local shopping centre are also a good way to promote your business. You could also ask about placing a notice in the local school newsletters & your local newspaper.
    Good luck.

  • What a great little business venture. I have a friend who does balloon creations for kids parties, she’s on Facebook

  • Yes I think I would look at local groups on like on Facebook as well!

  • I would look at local groups on Facebook. Several facebook group allow local businesses to advertise. Also try your local school and see if they have advertising space in their weekly newsletters.

  • Try ebay and gumtree :-) good luck

  • Some local Libraries allow posters on the notice boards. Shopping centre and school/day care centre notice boards also allow private advertising.

  • Facebook! Join groups that are in your service area and advertise there. It is free. I am a member of a local mummies marketplace in my area and that is the only place I go to find what I need for entertaining. Cake makers, face painters, photographers etc. I trust their opinions and recommendations so if I need something I post a question to the group first and am guided by their endorsements

  • Registering your business with Google Places allows it to be found more easily on Google searches and it shows up on Google Maps. Social Media is also fantastic such as Facebook and Twitter. There is also Gumtree.

  • facebook page and gumtree. kids newpapers?

  • You could set up your own website. advertise through as many channels as you can schools, shopping centres etc all leading them to your website for more information too and have pictures of your characters and craft ideas so people know what to expect. Make the contact details really easy to find too.

  • How about your local area facebook sites and your local newspaper. Perhaps the promary schools nearby might let you advertise in their newsletters/
