9) Everyone that I encounter in everyday life is a potential customer! They may not visit today or tomorrow, but they know that my site exists, because I told them about it! Have you ever taken someone's card, put it in your wallet or on top of a table, then forgot about it? You happen to see it again while cleaning out your wallet or table. You think, "Oh, I forgot all about this!". You then recall conversation that took place when you received card and realize that this is something that you need to do or want to do? I have and a lot of other people do same thing.
10) Find local places on internet to advertise. For example, we have a site for city where I live. I have placed a classified ad to let everyone in my city know that my site exists and I'm local. This makes people willing to do business with you. You are local! They somehow "feel safer", knowing that you live close by.
11) I have placed an ad in our local newspaper. There are a lot of new people buying computers that can benefit from my "newbie tips" in Newbie & Affiliate SOS Newsletter, but they can't benefit from my newsletter, if they don't know about it!
12) We have a lot of local swap meets in our town. I visit them and pass out flyers. I stand by front gate and pass them out as customers enter. Yes, some throw them away, but some will read them and use them. I have a relative that works one of local swap meets. I have printed up flyers and he sits them on a table with a large FREE Take One! sign in front of them.
There is a whole world to get your message to out there. Why just concentrate just on internet?
I also advertise my ink affiliate locally. Everyone needs printer ink and would love to save money on it! I have to let them know that a local internet user uses ink and has a site that they can order it from.
I have printed up flyers and distribute them locally, in offices, businesses, any place that will allow me to place them in their establishment.
The world is a huge Marketplace. Learn to use it to your advantage.
