This is Week 31 of a 52-week project/experiment in DIY marketing. Armed with nothing but a copy of the 2009 Grow Your Business Marketing Plan + Calendar
and my bare wits, I'm applying the skills you need to grow a business
in real time, day by day, and reporting on them week by week. See the Project Companion Blog, A Virgo's Guide to Marketing, for in-depth posts, additional links and other marketing-related goodness.
Getting your marketing machine up and running is a big endeavor that takes time, patience and a big appetite, much like eating the proverbial elephant.
This week, I reflect on some of the help I've enlisted in the eating of my elephant, both the paid and the free (well, paid in time) kinds.
To find out the full scoop, including all the gory details of what I learned, what I paid for it, and my exciting journey into the land of affiliate marketing, join me at the project mother ship, the Virgo Guide to Marketing.
