It depends on what kind of business it is. The Internet reaches the greatest audience worldwide, but if you have a small catering business in Tiny Town, Ohio, there's no point is global marketing. Determine who your customer is, then think about how to best reach him/her: print ads, TV/radio, flyers, billboards, Internet, YellowPages, etc.

It depends on what the business is. The marketing plan should have been created as part of the business plan, which includes information about target audience, marketing/advertising budget and demographics. Decide who you want to attract, then devise a plan to get their attention.

The marketing strategy used should directly correlate to the type of business you are opening. For instance you would not do a campaign at a Nursey Home if you are opening a "day care center for children". And you wouldn't advertise at "Men's Health Fitness" if your opening a new gynecologist firm.

Depending on the nature of the business, you could start a website and then attach the web address to the ends of e-mail. You could write a column showing your expertise in a particular area for the local paper and you could purchase TV or radio commercial airtime.

Best way is word of mouth, you want to get the word around as to what you are planning to do with your business. When word of mouth gets out customers may be intrigued in finding a new business to purchase from.

Well, there are several different routes you could take. One is the more traditional print ads, which are probably good for specialty businesses. Or you could go the internet route, which is a growing field and becoming one of the first places people check. Good luck with your new business.
