Excellent Advertising Tips!

  • Advertise during peak seasons for your business.
  • Get a memorable phone number, such as 1-800-WIDGETS.
  • Obtain a memorable URL and email address and include them on all marketing materials.
  • Provide Rolodex cards or phone stickers pre printed with your business contact information.
  • Promote your business jointly with other professionals via cooperative direct mail.
  • Advertise in a specialty directory or in the Yellow Pages.

  • Distribute advertising specialty products such as pens, mouse pads, or mugs.

  • Invest in a neon sign to make your office or storefront window visible at night.
  • Create a new or improved company logo or recolor the traditional logo.
  • Sponsor and promote a contest or sweepstakes.

    I am grateful to you for sharing some excellent advertising tips such as considering non-traditional tactics such as bus backs, billboards, and popular websites. You may want to even use your own bicycle to advertise your product or service. This type of mobile advertising would definitely catch the attention of a lot of people. If I were to advertise our own brand or product, I would definitely consider bicycle billboard advertising. Thanks.
