Personally i created an ad on Craigslist, i think its better to start small and next week when i settle into my new hotel i plan on going door to door to sell my products, or maybe even printing some free cards from Vistaprint because i believe they have deals for new customers. Avon is an easy thing to promote because so many people sell it around the world, but i hope to double major in business and i think this will be a great learning experience for me. www.youravon.com/livepretty

I just signed up for Avon today they give you a website and its only $7.50 every 2 weeks...BUT if you sell just one thing from the site the $7.50 fee is waived...what I have been doing is just cutting and pasting my link all over the web..i.e. Myspace, Twitter, etc. hoping to drive revenue to the site and get a few orders that way!!! Good Luck I hope we both become very successful..... :) http://www.youravon.com/scrawford3107

You said you want to get that strong customer base before you start an online site. However, if you think about it. Why not make a free website for the time being? On that website you could post all kinds of information. From how you got started in the business to what products you plan on having available for purchase. I recommend getting a free website from the folks at Webstarts and just start messing with it. Hey, once you get it to look how you want, you could go and get business cards, brochures and all sorts of things with your website address printed on it to hand to people. No technical experience needed to create a website from the link provided. They make it so easy to design a site. When I used it, it was like playing with Microsoft Powerpoint. Good luck!

Promoting your business online like with Yahoo Answers is a great start. What you want to avoid is lot of useless advertising like you can find out here: http://www.sitebetter.com/how-to-stop-wasting-money.html The best thing you can do is sit down and write down every person you have ever met or knew from your family members to your dentist. You could probably come up with a list of about 150 people right away. Then "tell" them what you are currently doing and would be happy to get some referrals. After all, you probably told a few people about your dentist. Don't you think you deserve a little payback?

Start promoting online, it's so easy. I have just started my own on line business and I knew absolutely nothing about the internet. I just happened to come across a website which teaches you step by step how to start up your own business online, how to divert traffic to your site, how to set up a website, how to become an affilaite and promote other peoples products. You have the right idea about going online, there are heaps of customers and big $ to be made. Check out this site, it's helped me heaps http://www.MaverickMoneyMakersManagement.com
