      Mr. Afroz,
      Your idea of this business is excelent. Minerals are really in demand these days and you can cover a huge market.
      I would advise you to spend some time on research.
      You can do job in some related company, read the research report of these companies, read the annual reports of these companies.
      Slowly and gradualy you will gain some idea about this business and you will be at a better position to start your own venture.
      There are many books for the same. You can visit the business libraries and get the related books. You can do a hard research on internet and you can get very good ideas.
      Thank you.

      Hi Debraj Paul,
      Nice to see your passion for your business. Coming to your question directly, “how to market your business with low investment”.

      To start any business you need at least some amount of basic investment, thus you need to keep in mind without money you CANNOT advertise / market.

      Few ideas and strategies you can definitely try… which requires very minimal investment.

      1. You can try printing 1000 Black & While leaflets (will cost you maximum Rs.500 – Rs.700) and stick 200 out of them to walls area near to your classes.
      2. Then you can insert same leaflets in local newspapers. (You can talk with local newspaper distributors) to help you.

      Try this method of 2 months and see if you get any response. All the best.
