Long time lurker, first time poster. I've just today decided on a new side venture - long story short, I'm thinking of selling parents of "talented" children (aspiring dancers, actors, singers, athletes etc) online portfolio websites for their child (which I hope is relevant enough to Offline Marketing for this forum). I was actually hoping to make something of this and share my journey with this forum at a later date - no such luck, it seems! Came up with a business name, brainstormed logo ideas and pricing, sales tactics and the like, pretty much had everything mapped out. I had a bunch of ideas to market it including printing flyers, posters, buying ads in school newsletters etc - all of which require investment. However, this afternoon, I was hit buy a sudden big charge that's literally left me with £60 cash to live off of for the next few months, so needless to say I can't afford to invest any money at all in this right now. I do still want to go ahead with it though, because now I desperately need the money and given that I do live in a fairly affluent area with a handful of performing arts academies/studios so I think I could make something of it. But now I'm out of ideas on how to actually get the idea out there and promote it. The only idea I can think of is to drag myself down to the studios on foot and pitch my idea to parents - but given that I have nothing to show for myself at this point (no marketing materials, nothing impressive like a projector for a presentation, I barely even have professional clothing!), I just feel like that's a bad idea. The one thing I can do is a website; it would have to be as a sub-domain to the website of my main business venture as I can't afford to pay for a new domain, but I don't feel that this would be too much of an obstacle. And I can make the website fairly appealing with the tools I have right now (e.g. nice fully customised theme, whiteboard videos, cartoon mascot etc). Is there anything I can do to target these parents at this point for FREE, without making an investment? I feel like there must be (something online?), but my mind is blank! Bare in mind that I'm a young, female student with fairly good computer skills. If I can't think of anything, I'll have to put this on the back burner for now, but as I said above I'd rather not. Only idea floating in my head right now is creating a Twitter account for the business and tweeting any dance studios I can find, or doing something similar with Facebook, but I feel that this is weak and can't really think of where I could go from there. Any ideas would be great guys. This forum has been really helpful for me in the past so I want to be in a position to give back eventually with my own success story!
