Team up with a local business
Find a local business that complements your business and see if the owner wouldn’t mind working with you. You can give the business an online presence and you can use them offline. You can trade business cards and even team up for package deals.
Create a phone book listing
The phone book is still a great place to get found. You can even buy an ad where you can put your URL. People still use the yellow pages a lot to find businesses so this makes this a natural place to advertise.
Think outside the box
Try off the wall ideas. See every situation you encounter as an opportunity. You might just be surprised at the results.
Become a news story
Do something newsworthy or become part of a news story and you will get free publicity from the news.
Host promotional product giveaways
Giving away promotional items is a great idea because you are giving away something free and people love that. Plus you are giving away something that advertises your business, so that is good for you. It is a win-win situation.
Put up a billboard
Billboards are attention grabbing and they send your message out to a large number of people.
