  • Advertising methods

    We all know what really makes a company stand out is how often a potential client sees them or there logo, or hears about them..

    Word of mouth probably is the number one way of getting yourself out there..but how do you get those few customers to start?

    Thats what me and my partner have been thinking about the past few months
    ans we decided we would advertise in many new creative ways and go beyond the standard
    door hangers
    and flyers
    and business card stands..

    We will not forget about those key advertising methods but thought..lets change it up a bit.

    So we decided to put our logo and our cards where people would never expect them..just so they remember..
    heres some of the ideas..
    tell me what you think on them

    Some are silly and serious but im sure theyll help us stick in a customers head.


    Flyers
    Postcards
    Social Networking
    Business Cards
    T-shirts

    now for the more creative

    Rolling down a sheet or two of paper towel in a restroom,tape your flyer on a sheet,roll it back up

    Same with business card on toilet paper?

    My town has a huge brick wall at the corner of two of the towns major roads
    so why not go to town hall and ask to hang a banner on it?
    you can get them not to pricey at uprint etc..

    Making Individual flyers for each business you hang them in
    make one for gas stations,hair cutting places,gun stores,antique stores,restraunts.

    theres more but now that i think about it im scared to try it..like the bathroom thing..would that just be an annoyance if you were a customer?

    Who are you, me? LOL

    It might be a waste give or take, time consuming. You could just put a flyer on the wall instead, maybe?

    I like your idea, putting ads in original places. It makes sense to me.

      Maybe on the back of a stall door or infront of there face on a urinal..haha

      Taping a quick flyer to it wont be too time consuming..theres the ones around here that you just spin it or tear it..and if you spin it down you can roll it up..so spin tape roll

      about 10 seconds you have a suprise for your next potential customer ahah
      maybe even make a special flyer for the restrooms.

      while your on the john, read me! ahhaha

        i wouldnt do the toilet paper thing. the last thing you want in a public pooper is a suprise when you are pulling on the toilet paper. id tape a flyer to the back of the stall door, at eye level. but then you might get a pervert calling you, looking for a good time......ya know....id just stay away from the bathroom.
