First when ACMoore or Michaels has sales on their frames, and an additional % off, that is a great time to stock up on acrylic frames for post it note holder frames. I went in on Black Friday (too late for the 30% off) and bought them on sale for 40% off. ($1.99-40% made them $1.19) Went back on Saturday as they said they'd adjust the price for me and got an additional 25% off. Which made them under $1. The cheapest I was able to find them was a 12 pack at for $14.

Next when you sell your items, make a point to add "Made by" on them! I had a cutomer buy some items from me at a previous sale. She called me this week very excited she had found me. I called her back and she ordered 6 more planners I had made, another $30 for me. She said she didnt know how to find me and was talking to a friend of hers in Florida (we are in PA) and she said that if I was a SU Demo I could be found via their Demo locator, which is how she found me. I had packaged a lot of my items in little bags to discourage little fingers from flipping through pages, and I added toppers and some, but not all of them had my contact info. I will be fixing that in the future. But at least the items she did buy had my name on them!
I am also a SU demo so what I do is I take those hostess postcards (that I have a bajillion of), put my information on an address label, cover the party information with it, and then sign it with a "thanks for your purchase" and my name. I put that in their bag of goodies that they have bought. This way, they have my info and I use those postcards up!
