There are thousands of competing web site designers promoting their services.

But this isn’t an article about how to get better search engine rankings.

There is another way to find clients – advertising. More specifically, advertising focused directly at your target market, which is small business owners looking for your services.

Here’s a tip: do not followrepparttar 131781 advertising examples you see in newspapers,repparttar 131782 Yellow Pages, or onrepparttar 131783 Internet – most of them are ineffective. They feature nice graphics and have attractive layouts, but they use phrases like “Database development, Interactive Forms, HTML/ASP/XML services...” Put yourself in your prospect’s shoes. Do those words tell him anything useful? What if he’s not “Internet-savvy,” doesn’t know if he needs a database, or has no clue what HTML is?

Instead, explain how your service will give your prospect what he needs.
