POWER OF TALKING (WORD OF MOUTH)
Word of mouth is one of the most powerful tools for advertising your product. As a female entrepreneur who likes what she does, I want to tell you that nobody can love your product the way you do. The first tip for you to market that product is by telling people about your product “ being Your own Marketer “. I believe when you tell people (friends, family, siblings, neighbours etc) around you about your product, someday they will patronize and refer others to you. Remember, these people are your first customers. They give you testimonies and tell others about your product if the services rendered to them are good. Don’t stop talking.
USE THE POWER OF SOCIAL MEDIA

As a female entrepreneur, you can make use of this opportunity by promoting your products on the internet. Different social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp etc) have their specific purposes. Just identify where best your customers are on these social media platforms and start pitching your tent there.
Branding is creating an identity for your product in the market it belongs. Branding starts from a well spelt out logo, business card, social media pages, nice packaging etc. How do people recognize your product amidst the multitude? It is your branding. Remember there are others that do what you are doing, so make your product distinguished. As an entrepreneur, you must learn to do things differently from your competitors.
