I’m hoping that your business plan contains a significant amount of information on your marketing strategies? (Unless you plan to market mainly through eBay, which I wouldn’t recommend).

For example, how are you going to drive traffic? Are you going to use free or paid strategies, or a combination of both? Are you going to use any of the following?

– Build a blog
– Use PPC Advertising
– Email marketing
– Affiliate Program
– Press Releases
– Promotional Partners
– List Building

That is the core of most of my businesses. There is a lot to think about. Sometimes when you’re starting a business, you think your customers will ‘just come to you’. But (arguably) most of the time, they don’t. Marketing can be frustrating and take a long time, so hopefully you’ve got some good marketing strategies in mind. (If not, it’s a good time to start!)

I hope that helps, and good luck with your venture!

don’t forget facebook, twitter and other forms of social media lol.
