I just strike up conversations with people when I' out & about (I'm a people-person, and find it easy to chat), and as appropriate (as it fits into the conversation), I ask what they do, and they then ask what I do. It's just plain networking; word of mouth. I call it 'lifestyling' my business.

That's an interesting strategy and one worth trying. Do you have your post-it notes written out ahead of time? Maybe someone should invent post-it notes that are pre-printed just like business cards. That might really work!

What a cool idea! Where do you get them printed?

According to our experience, the T-shirt technique works much better than any other techniques.

Offline marking is definitively more expensive. What research do you do before sending out postcards to maximize sending it to the right person?

Talking This works for me.

I use traffic exchanges and emailblasters that I'm subscribed to.
