Default Ideas for encouraging more sales

I've done very well so far with my new Usborne Business but I'd like to keep it going. I've already made my friends and family very aware of my new venture and I've asked people to host parties, so I need ways to find people I haven't met yet. Any ideas for how to do that?

I got several leads from doing a vendor event. I belong to a MeetUp group that has vendor events every three months so I did a table there. The cost was low ($25) and i had a couple of sales, booked a party (which in turn has booked three more parties) and got leads for new team members. Check your area for MeetUp groups as it's a great way to meet others in business. Also if you do a vendor event, be sure you introduce yourself to all of the other vendors there and get your information in their hands.

Default Ideas to network

Try a few of these if they suit you:

*Put your flyer/cards up in laundramats, grocery stores, libraries,..andwhere that has a bulletin board
*Offer to do a Fundraiser for a local daycare or preschool or your church
*Check with eventlister.com for area events that you could host a table at
*Ask those folks you know (that know about your biz) to help network you..offer a gift card for each referral that mentions their name and makes a purchase.
*Do a FB Mystery Host party

Hope those ideas launch others for you =)
Best wishes!

Thanks for the great ideas!

I'm already hosting a kickoff party for me, but before my incentive period ends, I'll do a mystery hostess event. I think that is a great idea!
