I started my own bear building business. Well I know where to get my products from, set up the site and have prices assigned. I just need the customers. No need to sign up with those companies as there prices are much pricier and some you have quotas to meet. Its simpler this way I just dont have the advertising budget.

Danielle,

When your website is ready, you can work towards getting traffic to your website. You can also write articles to distribute to the free articles site too. Networking can help too

Megan

Yes the children's party planning business is huge! A couple things to remember know your area that you are marketing to. Price can be a determining factor so if your area can't afford the prices you want to charge than you need to advertise in a different area. However with that being said you really have to put yourself out there for people to know who you are and your company! I do anywhere from 15-20 parties a month with my company but it has taken a lot of footwork to get the parties. One great way I get my name out is by setting up at craft shows and community events. This way I reach a lot of people at one time. I also advertise in my local Kid's Directory which is where a lot of my birthday party business and scout workshopscome from. I do Day cares and school workshops as well and do direct mail outs for those. I do Glamour Girl Parties and Stuff Your Own Stuffed Animal Parties as an independent crew member with Noah's Ark Workshop.

I was wanting to start planning princess parties, but then I did some
research and found out there are already 2 princess party businesses
and 3 kids party planning businesses in my small town.
