    Can anyone give me any ideas on how to be able to get my company name out cheap and easy. So i can possiably start to sell beekeeping supplys like frames, brood and honey suppers, bottom boards, inner covers, reducers, fume boards, and tops, complete hives,and maybe more as i get into it more and learn how to do other things like queen rearing.

    I would bet advertising on this very website (note the links to the right) doesn't cost all that much considering the number of directly interested customers you would be reaching.

    Putting some stuff in the classifieds area of this site
    Reach out to local clubs!! Make them deals, they are a large percentage of your customer base. If you listen to what they like, stock it and at good prices - they will come!

    The cheapest and easiest way is to provide a quality product at a reasonable price. Word of mouth thru clubs and here spreads like wild fire.

    I would also think if you could fine a niche product, you might be able to use that to wedge your foot into the door. Maybe something like foundationless frames, etc.

    If your prices are competative with other suppliers. Consider going to local bee association meetings and pringing some of your supplies and introduce yourself as a local producer, (no shipping costs) good inventory etc.

    Our bee association does raffles at every meeting. Donate some equipment for a raffle and make sure that your contact info is on the items.
