Some Ideas on How to Advertise for Free
Advertising for free seems almost too good to be true at first. But there are several ways that the cost of an advertisement can be minimal, with the help of some imagination and creativity.
A new business that is building on a budget, but paying for advertising still being a necessity, can write articles related to their field of expertise that can be submitted to media and publications that pertain to that particular field. The advertising article can have information about the company and opportunity.
Due to the rise of people using the internet and websites, new websites have launched which offer free services. Articles can be written for these websites and they can be broadcasted for free, which will be viewed by hundreds of people everyday.
Once the business has gained some momentum with consistent work, it will gain popularity among your target market whether they live in your area or not! Pretty cool, huh? This popularity can lead them to being invited on radio and television talk shows and even to interviews. For example, an article I wrote months ago landed me an interview on a popular website called Syndicated News.
Opportunities like these shouldn’t be missed as they provide a chance for free promotion. If it is taking a long time to get a break, the producer can be addressed with a letter that can be followed up by a telephone call or in-person visit. During the visit, your experience and credibility can be discussed about the business, which will be of interest to the viewers of the particular channel. Once a businessperson gains the status of being public-friendly, more offers start pouring in.
Be on the look out for free bulletin boards located in the neighborhood, like in grocery stores, libraries, the gym or salons, are some more good ideas. Advertising circulars can be posted on such boards for free. Circulars for mass distribution can be handed out at the mall, shopping center, bus stops, particularly on weekends when there is a big rush. Students can be hired on part time basis for this purpose.
Promotional advertisement can be printed on the envelopes used by the business firms. Both the sender and the receiver will see your advertisement. Promotional offers can be sent to customers by postcards, which should be utilized to its full, leaving only place left for writing the address.
Some of the new mail order publications offer free first time and seasonal deductions for advertisers. Other publications offer pay per inquiry space. Inquiries can be made about stand-by space, which means that the publication holds the submission of advertisement until the space is not sold and in that case, thirty three percent saving can be achieved. Usually local newspapers provide these kinds of offers.
If the business is involved in ad sheet or catalog publishing, other publishers can be contacted for the purpose of bartering for an advertising barter agreement of some kind. They can place advertisement in their publication, in return for placing their advertisement in the business’s publication.
Free offers should always be provided to the customer. Everybody loves stuff for FREE! This can be done by emailing or printing a newsletter about information regarding the area of interest of the targeted customers and can be made popular by using tag lines. Put a free coupon with it, which the customers can use for shopping, if a criterion is met like minimum purchase of lets say $50.
By this the response will be huge and most of them will purchase something or the other to avail the free offer. The basic ingredient for advertising for free is imagination and research. Opportunities should be searched and a strong working force should be applied to increase the sales.
