From:Veronica, New York, USA.
Gaining and maintaining positive live links within your local community is a must if you want any hope of gaining outside support and revenue. Let's say as an example you are involved with a church fund raising committee. Once you have established a front man or woman, (possibly the chairperson) get them to work straight away introducing themselves to everybody within the parish and taking note of essential details, such as there name and address, phone number, if they work, what they do. Would they have time and inclination to join the team of fund raisers. If not would there be any other way of helping financially or with key contacts that could assist your aims. Be seen to take a genuine interest in others and sure enough others will take an interest in you and what your involved in. Make friends within the business community and become known. You would be surprised how many valuable contacts you can make just by turning up at a few local town meetings a year. If your front person is young, they might enjoy going to a young business start-up club. You know the sort I mean, where people are starting up there new business venture and are often giving very low charges to get there business of the ground and established. Obviously be sure to use reputable quality workers. I recently spoke to an established screen printer who told me he has two organisations that have been with him sins starting his business more than twenty years ago. He said he always gives the very best discounts to them because of that very reason. As they grow they will remember you have always been a regular customer and probably discount there price structure to keep your custom. When I started my business "Veronica's" I used this method and found it saved me big bucks.
P.S. Good luck with your new site.
