OK folks, seems the Gauntlet has been handed down, and I'm in need of some suggestions. In 2000, I saved enough to buy a web server, and started my own buisness. I never lasted very long at regular jobs, because I'm not as conversational as I used to be. Blockbuster lasted 3 months, TRU 1 week, and Grand Union 3 weeks. This is more up my alley because I'm much more conversational online and via email. However, for the past two years, my father has been helping with the online bills for the T1 line, since he has his own buisness as well. Apparently that might not be happening anymore, because I was just given one this week. And with three customers, at $60's per month, that's not going to cut it. So, I'm looking for suggestions. Word of mouth hasn't really worked in drawing a new customer base. I always add a signature in the message boards I visit with a short add below, and that hasn't worked. I've lowered the price as low as I can go without giving it away for free, and that hasn't worked. The customers I do have have been kind enough to spread the word as well, and that hasn't worked either. So, a question. What's the best way to get a REALLY small buisness(with one employee, no less ) off the ground? My new goal is to get at LEAST 3 new customers per month. The more I get, the more I can lower the price, and I'm hoping that can help. But first I have to attract people to the server. We offer all the basics, but that dosn't seem to be bringing them in either.... Any ideas? Most appreciated .
