"7 Dirt-Cheap Tactics To Ignite Your Online Sales!"Written by Michael S.L Bombard
1. When in a bookstore, leave your business card within first 4 pages of books related to your target audience. If they're interested in book's subject, they'll probably be intrigued by your business card as well, and visit your website, call you, email you, etc.
Off-line generated prospects are also proven to be more likely to buy once visiting your website, in comparison to prospects generated online. Kind of like playing "hard to get" I guess.
2. Use an email "header" to immediately remind prospects of benefits you offer. A header is just like a signature file, but at very top of your email.
You can use a simple 2-3 line header, stating who message is from, and a short one line advertisement for one of your websites. Place headers in your newsletters/ezines, autoreponder messages, mlm prospecting emails, etc.
Note: This can also be a great way to "test" your headlines and it works like crazy! I mean it.
3. Write high-quality, information intense articles for more free publicity. Hey, if you have time to write them, people almost always have time to publish them for you and create a storm of free exposure!
One article a month from your fingertips could mean an extra $200 a month addition to your bottom-line, or easily more. For few hours it takes to write and distribute, it's more than worth work. Like Simon Baxter said "Get your name out there as someone who knows where it at!"
