I used Craigslist and other free online ad sites, I joined online communties and groups, joined and built lists and I blog.
Offline/Warm MarketWith my warm market I have put out flyers, had a table set up at events, have a yard sign and writing on the back of my car. I tell everyone I meet (when asked!) what I do. I am the coordinator of the Central New York Network Marketing group.
My Fave Ways to Market
My favorites out of the above marketing strategies have been blogging, putting out flyers, CNY networking meetings and doing events.
What methods do I detest?
#1 is probably Craigslist.............they don't allow people like me to advertise there :-(
Oh, and "home meetings". Every business I have been involved with that promised it involved only 10 -15 hrs a week ended up involving 2-3 meetings a week - to the tune of 2-3 hours each!
That's approximately 5-10 hours in meetings, what about everything else involved?
So, do tell......
What marketing strategies do you like the best?
