When out marketing, you should wear your name badge on the right side of your jacket - this makes it easier for your target to both shake your hand and read your name at the same time.
Strengthen your presentation skills by making your presentation short and by sticking to one idea.
Don’t go to a marketing event with the goal of collecting everyone’s business card - focus on one or two contacts and follow up after the event.
Don’t be shy - ask someone directly what kind of business they are looking for and how you can help them to get it.
Carry a supply of other people's business cards with you as well. Why? Because other people's business cards can serve as the entree to making that contact and letting people know you.
Writing articles on topics related to your business expertise is an excellent business promotion technique.
Spend some of your online time on business promotion. Posting messages in forums is a great way to make your business known to people you would otherwise be unable to contact. Promote online by showing others that you're a knowledgeable, personable individual.
Promote your business by giving a seminar or presentation. You have expertise that other people are interested in! (You couldn't be in business if you didn't.) Why not share that expertise and promote your business at the same time?
