This Offline marketing section of BHW is great, I see lots of great discussions about getting business and making money. Infact if I go to the download section I see probably dozens of items to DL about offline client getting... but what about the basics? But since some people are still struggling with getting an SEO or web design business off the ground, let's maybe mention one of the most basic things you can do.... Join your local Chamber of Commerce. I was against joining mine for the longest time because I really didn't like the idea of the "Good 'Ol Boys Club" but in many smaller areas (like mine) that is the only way to get business. You need the endorsement of your peers. So for those of you who haven't had much luck with the fliers, direct mail, or any other "offline tactic" - consider joining a group like your Chamber of Commerce, Rotary Club, or BNI group.
