So you have a small business, but you just don't know how to get the word out about your products or services. My name is Laura, and I can help you. The best way to promote your small business is by giving out a product that does the advertising for you. People love to get something for free, and if you offer something that is useful most people will jump at the opportunity to take it. This will get your business's name in their heads. Promotional items like pens, pencils, hats and water bottles are excellent ways to promote your business and get clients.
