AS we reminise the days of going to a festival; you have to stop and wonder.  Will we ever see those days again.  Enjoying the different foods, shopping at outdoor marketplaces.  Just being around people having a good time.  Enjoying live outdoor entertainment.

Even the largest much needed brick and mortars are closing because of overhead. (Post Office, Department stores and so on). Then on the other hand a the internet can be a benefit to the brick and mortar. If people can feel they trust you via physical contact at your brick and mortar, they are more apt to feel safe going to your website and doing business. And they will appreciate the convenience. The main concern in an internet only business is 'CAN I TRUST THIS SITE'...big names like department stores, HSN, Pro Flowers, have no problem because they have an established reputation. But for the small new comer to the internet, internet only is going to be a challenge.

Although you may start a venture as a hobby or a little money on the side.  It is always wise to have a professional edge to  your venture.  By this I mean, write down everything you spend and everything you make.  Get flyers made up to advertise yourself.  Always value each and every sale.  And treat each customer no matter how small with respect.r 

Your first step is to get a business license from your local City Hall.    The next step is to evaluate your product so that you can figure out the best marketing scheme.  Is your product a necessity, a luxury, or a temporary fad.  Stay tuned as we elaborate on different marketing strategies.
