Internet Marketing and Advertising for the Green Industry Written by Adam White
How do you tap into network of online advertising without wasting your money on advertising that can bring you little results? Advertising on internet can be risky for landscaping companies because you may be paying for someone across country or world to see your ad or website. You need localized advertising. You ask yourself, well how can internet advertising be an effective way to advertise locally. Well letís think about this for a second. Who is your target audience? It is either businesses or someone willing to pay for lawn maintenance or landscaping. These are people who use latest technologies in everything they do. These are people who go to internet to find things they are looking for. They do this because they know that they will find most information about what they are looking for. You want proof? How did you find this article? You looked it up on internet. This is way people find what they are looking for now. So they go to internet to search for landscaping companies in their state or even their own town. Now you might be asking yourself, well Iím a lawn care company, not a landscaping company. Most people donít know difference. They believe that a lawn care company is same thing as a landscaping company. So they search for landscaping companies in their state and whatever website shows up at top of Yahoo, MSN, or whatever search engine they use, thatís one that they are going to visit to find a landscaping company. What about yellow pages? I can't tell you how many owners of landscaping companies have told me that they spend hundreds of dollars each year to be listed in yellow pages and don't get any calls from their listing. I ask why they continue to spend money there and it is simply because all other companies are listed. If you want to throw away money just because every other company does, throw it my way. I can guarantee you will get no calls if you give me your money and then you won't have to worry about it.
