Default Tips On Printing

Hello all,

I've been advertising in Trucker magazines recently, trying to get the name out for the company. We sell every type of clothing garment you can think off - including medical kits. I was wondering if anyone had any good ideas for print advertisement?

This is my site if you want to get a good idea of my company:
psas.co.nz

Kind Regards,

Guy

Hi Guy - looks like you have a substantial range of products - and I'm sure at competitive prices (which is a brilliant start) but what's your killer proposition to a specific target group? You seem to be servicing all areas. Is there a way you can get some personal stories in there of why people should deal with you/

Mark Zuckerberg launched Facebook initially for the students at his university and the 50 Shades of Grey book series was originally vampire erotica. They captured a specific market and got conversations going. How could you do the same.

A story people can relate to like "A $22 PSAS safety vest saved my life" real story starts to engage with people. Because people wear your clothing (often) all day, every day - there must be stories you can use to gain attention.
Hope this helps
Chris

I'd try to place your ads in some niche specific newspapers and magazines.
As you've mentioned, you have medical kits for good prices. So place your ad in a medical magazine where your target audience is.

You can post signs or banners outside your shop or areas where traffic is good for people to see. You can also create mini designs of your products in magnets, labels, or stickers. You can give them to your clients as extra giveaways for purchasing your products. Ensure that you get your name printed on the graphic items. You can also use car wraps or car decals to post your brand, including your contact details. You advertise your shop all over the city when you go driving.
