Exclamation 19 Effective Offline Advertising Methods That Generate Traffic to Your Website

With the advent of the Internet and the worldwide dominance and prominence of Google, Facebook and Twitter, one could reasonably assume the whole world revolves around the Internet. It doesn't.

There's a great big offline universe out there with nearly 6 billion people in it; that was here long before the Internet. And if you don't have an offline marketing strategy to reach those billions of people, and compliment your online marketing strategy, you're missing out on a significant amount of traffic and income.

Following are 19 affordable and effective offline advertising methods that generate traffic to your website: Continue reading 19 Affordable and Effective Offline Advertising Methods That Generate Traffic to Your Website.

Default I have one to add...

Those are 19 great ideas, but I have one to add.

One of my favorite products for generating traffic offline are temporary tattoos. They're affordable, easy to distribute and people love them.
Temporary tattoos are great because you can pretty much customize them any way you like them.
Add your logo, URL or artwork and you're ready to promote!

That's actually a great idea, I hadn't thought of that. Thank you for your contribution to this thread.

T shirt with your brand's name or icon is also a good idea.

Temporary tattoos... That's really interesting! I think any type of promotional item can be great, but you really need to make sure that you pick something interesting.

Yes, like your innovative ideas. Donate freebies for fundraiser events. Have your logo attached to those freebies.
Also word of mouth works wonderfully for advertising offline.

Thanks for sharing. It's true that offline marketing is not dead yet, but is it as efficient as online marketing? What would you say?
