Not so long ago, I had been talking to some friends about opening up a partnership business, an online selling business, that is. This plan didn't materialize this year, though. We thought we could squeeze some time for this but we ended up getting too busy with our own bread and butter - our respective jobs! We are not giving up, though. Hopefully, after we have already set up and optimized our online presence, we would be able to launch this small business some time next year. Right now, we're still discussing how we can make this small business work smoothly because we also don't want it to interfere with our jobs. We ended up agreeing to have some roles/tasks to carry out. I thought my role is quite challenging since I will have to focus on the marketing side of the business. Hmmm, how do I do that and how do I get started? Perhaps someone can help me carry out some parts of my task. I thought I could probably use some advertising ideas from a friend who happens to be a professional copywriter and editor. Another good old friend who will arrive from the U.S. next year suggested that we print flyers at printingamerica.com because she thinks flyers can be effective advertising tools for our business. Hopefully, I can come up with some catchy phrases for our future ad campaign. Now, I am getting all the more excited in this business! I can't wait to get started. I am really hoping that 2013 will be another good year for me and my business-minded friends.
