Automobile Advertising - You may be thinking I am making this up, but I'm not. Think about it, how many miles an hour do you travel in a month and than think of how many people you have passed while driving? It's just like those big trucks that deliver goods to stores and advertise their company on it. You can stick magnetic signs, stickers or whatever on your card that advertise your web site's URL.

Promotional Items - Include your web site's URL on all promotional items you give away. This could be a T-shirt, coffee mug, keychain, hats or whatever you choose. It will remind people every day of your service(s) or product(s) and in most cases it takes more than one time for a visitor to see your site before they will buy something from you.

Yellow Pages - Place an ad for your web site inrepparttar Yellow Pages. You would be amazed of how many people will find your web site inrepparttar 105705 Yellow Pages.
