You can create unique recipe cards to help promote your own
business,Guest Posting or even to start a part-time business from your own
home.

As we all know, the majority of business cards that are handed
out either get forgotten or thrown in the trash very quickly.

By making unique business recipe cards, you’re not only providing
something of value, but you’re also advertising in a way where
people will see and remember your business.

All you need to get started is a home computer printer, some
recipes and some blank index cards.

When choosing your recipes, make sure that you have legal rights
to use them.

Although recipe ingredients cannot be copyright protected, the
recipe instructions are, therefore you can’t just pick recipes
out of magazines and books to use in this way.

You will need to either use your own unique recipes, or you can
use recipes that have now fallen into the public domain where the
copyrights have expired.

To help get you started, you can obtain over 260 public domain
recipes in The Bread And Biscuit Baker's And Sugar-Boiler's
Assistant.

Every recipe provided in The Bread And Biscuit Baker's And
Sugar-Boiler's Assistant is now in the public domain and free for
anyone to use (for personal use or profit), and considering that
they are for wonderful cakes and candies, these are perfect for
your unique business recipe cards.

To make your recipe business cards, you will want to print one
recipe on one side of a blank index card attractively, and your
business ad on the other side of the card.

Make sure that you include a small line at the bottom of the
card, on the side that you have the recipe that states something
like the following:

For more delicious recipes please send a SASE for recipe list to:
YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS

This is so that you can send a price list (25 cents per card is
good) for more cards to promote even more recipes (and ads) on
your cards. Make sure the statement is in a smaller font than
the actual recipe so that it doesn’t take up much room on your
cards.

Be sure to be very creative and add nice graphics to the backs of
your cards to make your ads more attractive.

Also, you can start a successful part-time business by selling ad
space to area businesses where their ads are placed on the backs
of the cards that you distribute.

To do this, make up about 10 separate cards, using 10 different
recipes and 10 different ad designs that you can use as samples
of your work.

Next, create a short letter that explains the benefits that the
businesses receive once you start distributing cards with their
ads on them.

Point out that the recipe cards are extremely likely to be used
over and over again, and that they provide an excellent
opportunity to have their ads seen by hundreds of local
consumers.

Further explain how you plan to distribute your cards to local
consumers, so that they understand that there is no work involved
on their part.

Provide your prices on a "per ad" per card basis, usually 25
cents per card is a nice round figure, and include your phone
number so that you can be reached if they would like to place an
order.

It’s best to suggest a minimum order of 100 cards so that you
don’t get orders so small that it would be a waste of time to
print them.

Include a few of your sample cards (3 cards per letter is good)
and start mailing your letters to businesses that pique your
interest.

Once you receive some orders, there are several ways you can
distribute the cards quickly and easily.

You can advertise in your newspaper to send a free recipe in
exchange for a SASE.

You can include ads on the cards that people will order from
after requesting your recipe price list.

You can compile several hundred different recipes in a regular
index box and resell the recipe boxes for even more profits.

your new recipe business card business a success. The tips

successful launch, and provides methods that you can implement
to make several hundred dollars per month in additional income.

them!
