    Network constantly, but don't try to sell all the time. Networking is about selling "through" and not selling "to". You will do more business if you build up trust and people refer your business than if you run around handing out business cards.

    Thanks for the list.

    I too believe that web presence has become more important these days. If you've correct marketing strategy to develop your product sale in internet, that is more useful and beneficial. Like ebay are doing the sell of products and more effectively.
