Question by cheekkkychik: What is the best way to advertise a web site?
Im asking because I have set up a web site to raise awareness of a medical condition and despite being on google hits are slow. We are working towards getting charity status so funds are limited until we get funding. Does anyone have any ideas or information on charities or organisations that give funding for marketing to raise awareness. Thank you.

Answer by Cynthia A
Is your business an online business & can people buy from you who are not in your local area? If not, why advertise online? You need to concentrate on marketing locally if your customers are local. Free ads sites aren't worth what you pay for them - the competition is too great. You'll need to pay for quality customers one way or another.

Find someone in your local area who has the customers you want. Have him/her recommend your business & give them a piece of the sale if any of his customers buy from you from his recommendation. That's called a joint venture, BTW & it's one of the quickest ways to get new customers without any cash upfront. You only pay when a sale is made.

Where can I advertise a small business for free?

Question by Ruth Lopez: Where can I advertise a small business for free?
How can a smaller business reach its target market for little or no cost? Whether a business offers a product or service, the advertising challenge is the same: reaching qualified customers. Free classified ad websites are excellent sources of qualified leads but which ones? I am aware of craigslist, backpage, bjayslist, and ebay classifieds, but I am having no luck with ebay classifieds.. Any advise would be helpful.

What is the best way to advertise and market my small home business?

Question by mommyo: What is the best way to advertise and market my small home business?
I run a home-based business selling hand-painted self-stick murals for kid-friendly spaces. I have my own website and have placed an ad in my local newspaper. I plan on putting up some posters at some local community centres, libraries etc. Problem is... this is not that effective. I don't have a lot of cash and am hoping that word of mouth will be my best form of advertising. Does anyone have any other ideas for getting the word out about my business? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

Answer by Great Days
Create an attractive half page flyer describing your products. Make sure to place your contact phone number in the flyer and that there is somebody who will answer the phone when inquiries come in.

Distribute the flyers in places where your potential clients go. Give 2 or 3 flyers to your regular customers and request them to give the flyers to their friends that would be interested in buying your product.

Have a nice day !

I need marketing ideas for a charter school. What are inexpensive ways to advertise & get more kids to enroll

Question by sweet_sunshine_74: I need marketing ideas for a charter school. What are inexpensive ways to advertise & get more kids to enroll
We are a charter school in our second year and want to attract more families on a very tight budget. Any great and inexpensive marketing ideas would be greatly appreciated. 🙂

Best answer:

Answer by Ron B
In my opinion, its not really “the kids” you want to attract, is it? Of course not. You want to attract “the persons controlling the purse strings”: the parents and guardians of those children. The children won’t have a choice, will they? OR will they? I think you have to win over the parents and guardians AND the children. The Q is “How?”

Your Q is at a pretty advantageous time - maybe. School is JUST getting ready to open for a new year. My Suggestions #1: IF NOT for this year, how about for next semester and/or next year? An “Open House”. AND the entire Board of Directors, faculty and staff should be on-hand to answer any and all Qs from parents and children. The Open House should have some light refreshments - BUT NOT “cheap” or inexpensive refreshments. OR
Suggestion #2: Some of the folks could donate the refreshments, couldn’t they? I’m sure there are some wonderful cooks and bakers on your staff and the parents and guardians of the children attending the school, aren‘t there?

Suggestion #3: You should focus your enrollment campaign on a more affluent area. Honestly, I don’t know how a charter school works or operates, but it seems to me this is the economic level you should start investing your advertising/promotion funding. This level and higher levels.

Suggestion #4: You have to make the investment in time with the Board of Directors, your faculty, staff, current students and the parents and guardians of those students. You NEED ideas to get the magnet to start attracting those folks you‘re interested in attracting and enrolling in your school. What does your charter school do - more of and better than any other nearby school? This is where I think it should begin.

Suggestion #5: You could offer the best suggestion and the runner-ups different fee-paid services for free or at a greatly reduced rate, couldn’t you?

Suggestion #6: I never saw this in any school or college I attended, but I saw it ALL the time in the establishments where I worked: How about comment cards and suggestion boxes placed in strategic locations throughout the school AND [maybe] in businesses throughout the community? You could offer a monthly prize.

Suggestion #7: If you wanted to, you could probably set-up an e-mail address for suggestions only, too, couldn’t you?

Thank you for asking your question. I enjoyed taking the time to answer it. You did a great job - not only for your information, but for every other person interested in reading my answer. Thanks to everyone for reading my answer.

I wish you well!

VTY,

Best ways to advertise & market small daycare business. How do I reach mothers of small kids?

Question by Daddy's Girl: Best ways to advertise & market small daycare business. How do I reach mothers of small kids?

Best answer:

Answer by Ravyn
Try drop advertising (fliers and business cards), it's old time marketing but not many people do it anymore so you might have a niche. Either print some nice fliers and business cards or have them printed, (you can go to Vistaprint for free fliers and bc's), then think about where young mothers go, laundromats, churches, grocery stores, etc. ask the owners of those places for permission to leave a stack of business cards on the counters or place the fliers on the cars windshields in the parking lot. While you won't generate a large amount of business you will get some response and some is better than none.
You can also go to USFreeads and place free classified ads to be posted in your area, or you can also think about running a classified ad in your local newspaper, they aren't very expensive and there are still people that read the paper the old fashioned way 🙂
I hope these ideas help.
Good Luck!

What is the most cost effective way to advertise a seasonal small business?

Question by gc_level_17: What is the most cost effective way to advertise a seasonal small business?
Unfortunately, I don't have a lot of money to advertise because it will be coming out of my own pocket. This is a huge risk to advertise a business that might not do well. Ads in the local newspaper are fairly expensive for a short amount of time, as well as printing inserts and having the newspaper insert them. Bulk mail-outs are also not an option because of the cost.

What is my best bet for the largest distribution for a cost lower than 0? Help from small business owners and advertising majors/marketing majors is most welcome! Thanks!
I know who my customers are: old people. They will have old damaged photos.

I will be doing this business locally ONLY so the internet is probably not a good idea. And especially if my target market are people 40+. Neither of my grandma's have a computer.

Best answer:

Answer by phovisi
I suggest you read a book called Guerilla Marketing. Because of the Internet the ability to reach your market has become much easier for small start ups but you need to do your research first. Perhaps you should try to identify your potential customers and market directly to them. Gone are the days of mass marketing.
