You have a start-up business that you run from the comforts of your home. You have just started to build an online presence too with your website and blog. How can you promote your site and blog without having to shell out big money you do not have yet?

CelticsBlog – While I did poke fun at the Boston Celtics earlier on this list, there are still many fans of the team. This is the destination for those fans.

Due to this change, what was happening was FHA loans were on the rise BIG time as the brokers still had control over the appraisal process. That will end January 1st. FHA does not want to take on any more risk than they already have and FHA does not want and they are not asking the Federal Goverment to bail them out.

Bandit Signs are the signs you see on telephone poles and street lights around your home town that proclaim “We buy houses cash!”. These have limited success. Additionally, you should be aware of any town ordinances against public advertising – some towns will levy fines if you staple these signs on every streetlight in an area.

The call rate is very low, but even a handful of calls can make it very worthwhile if a lucrative opportunity pops up.
