Advice on how to grow small business
Hey, I started a free online tutoring business over the summer due to the COVID-19 pandemic. I wanted to help students out and do my part to be an active change in my community.
Though it has been about a month since starting this, I have not been able to get anyone to tutor.
Can you guys please give me some tips on how to grow the business and how to be reasonable enough to put on my college apps?

How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
You can try advertising your tutoring service on your social media and through your personal connections (family, friends...). Also advertise by posting about your amazing service on volunteering sites (such as AllForGood, Volunteer Match, etc). I have also seen students posting on their school's social media (Facebook, Instagram) about such opportunities.
