Default Business Promotion

I'm just wondering what the thoughts are about promoting my business on the street. I feel it's a great and affordable way to add a personal touch and provide better insight into what I do rather than spend tons of money on print and other promotional materails.

What are your thoughts?

Default Grassroots Marketing

What's your business? So sounds like you are looking to do some grassroots marketing, if you? I think that's great because personally, I think consumers are dead to traditional advertising. So what do you have in mind?

Go for it. Make up some cool posters and hang them on telephone poles.

Study guerilla marketing techniques for more ideas.

Giving leaflets and walking adverts can be great for your business, but what is your business? If we know we can help you more.

If you are on the street anyway then sure go for it, use the street as the personal billboard. But if not, then you must consider the time you invest and compare to other means of pushing the promo message.

Good luck!

I love creative advertising. Grassroots, gorrila, tv, direct mail, whatever. If you want my opinion on what would work for you Inspyer I would need to know what your business is.

I prefer billboards, flyers, posters, print ads and so on, we spend much money on it every month.
