In this wired internet age in which we live I do believe that all businesses should be and can harnessing the power of theÂ internet to take their businesses to the next level. In particular, even if your business is a traditional off-line business, you certainly should be using the new technologies to drive customers to your off-line business.
With the rise and rise of the internet it seems that the vast majority of the posts, articles and comments are related toÂ Internet Marketing so I have decided to make a few posts and put some documentation together on off-line marketing as most of my customers are new to the Internet Marketing age. Here I will comment on 2 simple Traditional Off-line Marketing methods, please do not think of these methods as too simple or mundane. They are very effective when done right and combined with other techniques in your marketing arsenal.
This is something everyone should be testing in some form or another. Itâ€™s great for lead generations. You should still haveÂ a strong benefit-driven headline and a clear call to action. Free reports work very well with classifieds. I have noticed that local papers (such my local Friday Ads) has an ongoing deals of booking four weeks for the price of four. Even adding more months only ends up costing a few pounds (or even less dollars!), and there is always room to barter and negotiate price if you are a regular customer. With prices like that, thereâ€™s no reason anyone with a website should not be testing ways to draw traffic to the site with Classifieds.
Nothing beats direct response when it comes to results-driven proven advertising. And messages sent directly to your highly targeted market via direct mail can deliver a terrific return on investment (ROI) when tested properly. Thereâ€™s a wealth of information on direct marketing by Michel Fortin, David Garfinkel, Gary Halbert, Dan Kennedy, and many more experts. Here are some sites where you can learn more:
