Marketing yourself

Maria Marsala -- Marketing is about letting people know what you do, just for the heck of it. It's about building relationships, connecting with others and letting them know how your service or product adds value to their lives.

People who understand what you do are your best referral sources. And it's about understanding what others do and being their best referral source. Selling your product, closing the sale and referrals by others are some outcomes of great marketing.

Don't market a particular way "just cause someone else is doing it!" If it's not comfortable for you to do, that is the message others will hear too. Would you want to buy from someone who is coming across nervous or uncomfortable with what they're selling? Don't be afraid to take a marketing idea and adjust it!
