Developing Creative Home Business Promotions

by Mary Emma on November 5th, 2007

Developing creative promotions for your home business adds interest and draws more customers, or in the case of blogs, more viewers and participants.  Some of these will encourage customers to visit your walk-in shop.  Other promotions can increase customer awareness of your online presence.   

Noreen at Hankering for Yarn has developed a promotion around a doll she created, Tottie Tomato.  A whole world has around Tottie, complete with stories and activities. 

The most recent?   Noreen and Tottie invite you to a virtual tea party, where you can enjoy a cup of tea with other artists and crafters.  Also, invite someone to tea with you and share your favorite arts and crafts stories.

Noreen even has a gift for some lucky guest…read more about it at Hankering for Yarn. You’ll also find there links to all the activities surrounding Tottie.

This may give you ideas for promotions you envision for your business. 

*A mascot

*A story or ongoing ones

*A contest

*Special decorations

*Theme prizes…to suggest a few
