Are you tired of trying to figure out interesting places to advertise your products or services? Want some creative yet simple ideas? Sometimes, simple ideas are the ones you overlook, and these ideas can sometimes create the most business for you. It's important to remember that you have to be where your consumers are. Free advertising will help promote your business.
Give Goodies with Business Cards
Buy a small zip baggy and include some business cards, mini fliers, a few lollipops and candies and a few discount coupons if you have them. Hand them out to retail cashiers, at kids sporting events and whoever you encounter when going about your business.
Use College Resources
Visit college campuses, housing and dorms because students are usually looking for good deals and ways to save money. Many students are interested in extra income, so you can contact them with a few business options too. Drop some business cards and fliers in college student centers. Usually they have tables and bulletin boards, where such information can be placed or distributed for free.
Print your product or service information on balloons as they are very economical. You can distribute them at local sporting events, community centers or other such places. Read the newspapers and watch the news for major events that are coming to town. Visit events and pass out business cards or other goodies.
Promote Your Business with Other Products
Print some tote bags with information about your business. Distribute them to family, friends, and co-workers and ask that they use them in the community. Getting the name of your business in the minds of people is important. The more often people see your business name, the more likely they are to buy your good or services.
Use the Internet
Place information about your business or link your business website to social media sites. People use the Internet for all types of transactions, such as asking other people for advise. Try to find forums or social networking sites and post information about your business. You can even make a business webpage on social networking sites, such as Facebook and MySpace, for free.
