To some newsletters might seem a bit old fashioned but providing it’s not spammy and actually has something in it that people would be interested in then they’re a great way of getting information and news about your business in front of the right eyes.

Don’t underestimate the importance of word of mouth either, once you’ve had one happy customer more are likely to follow!
