Smart Promotion Tactics
You’ve likely read a lot about promotional tactics but some of what you read just doesn’t feel right.
The fact is you don’t have to resort to sneaky tactics to succeed at getting customers. Just think of those scam MMM or those Ponzi schemes emails and messages you get.
You can market your products with integrity and pride because your cakes are great.
No marketing deceitfulness required. When you are proud of your cakes or what ever products you produce you can promote them on social media, within blog posts, and in email and feel great about it. There is never a reason to feel guilty about making money from your cakes when they are of high quality.
Getting exposure may require that you step outside of your comfort zone and start using other mediums such as online radio interviews, guest blogging, authorship, speaking engagements and more.
You might also want to look into strategic joint ventures and / or pay per click advertising or using Sponsored Ads on Google, Instagam or Facebook.
