This will be my first full year legal so i am out of the getting my feet wet stage and on to the let do this 100% stage. Ive been going around to local yoga room, tax prep places and even the DA's office dropping off sample trays along with business cards. I have been getting a nice return on this almost free promotion. But i feel like I am missing other opportunities. I just entered a local bake off and that has already gotten me free publicity. Ive been selling a lot of my tshirt, stickers and buttons from my website, but thats down at the moment. any other ideas??? Should i make flyers to take? brochures are expensive, i was thinking about mailing thank you custom postcards to past clients with a coupon, or maybe a free dozen cupcakes??



Side note question seeing as i work from home i offer delivery free. i have been doing this for the last 8 months. but its getting to the point of it completely in covenant for me so i know its time to charge how do you base your delivery fee??? By radius, or a flat fee.

Congrats on the return of your samples so far!  To answer your delivery question...I offer free delivery within my town and the next town since its small.  After that it's a flat fee based on area and anything outside of my flat fee range is .70/mile.  HTH and good luck in your first full year!!
