Having been in several traditional businesses, as well as online home based businesses, one thing always remains the same, we all look for the most cost effective advertising possible.
I have used every medium there is, from traditional yellow pages, newspaper print, magazines, radio, cable TV, direct mail, restaurant place matts, billboards, yard signs, flyers, magnetic signs, take one displays, movie theatre videos, auto wraps and Mobile LED Billboards, Of course, business cards,fax blasts, telemarketing, robo calling and then for some businesses, trade shows, state fairs, local chamber of commerce, Rotary Club, Networking Groups, free incentives, vacation vouchers, So have I missed anything? lol
Simply put, I have tried it all, and when I converted all my business to the internet, a whole new world opened up. First was email marketing, free exchanges, banners, click exchanges, SEO, PPC, Adsense, forum posting, FaceBook, YouTube, Social-Media-Income, Reciprocal Referrals, you name it, I have used it. As most know in any business, it is not cheap to advertise, and all of these mediums can cost a fortune, so what did I discover as the best medium of all long term for offline and online businesses.
The one medium which is almost cost free is my Mobile LED Billboards which I put in the rear windows of my vehicles blasting out the message for the specific business opportunity I am promoting. Given I promote several businesses online, I drive traffic to my sites by simple loading a specific message in my scrolling LED signs. Get Paid To Park & Drive is my main message, and it gets more attention to my other businesses than anything else I have evaluated. I can change message as often as I want, and how do I know this medium works, most people are lip readers so I can see in my rear view mirror and watch people read my messages. Then they reach for a pen and paper to write down website address or phone number.
Nothing is easier or more cost effective in my experience, and it is a form of advertising which keeps on working for years and years no matter what kind of business you promote. I park strategically at entrances and exits at sporting events, state fairs, conventions, airport parking, malls, grocery store, wherever I go I get Paid To Park & Drive. I was thinking I would make it an affiliate networking business given everyone needs to advertise no matter what kind of business they are in. My latest new business is a Ceramic Nanotechnology Protective Autocare finish product line like no other. You almost never have to wash your vehicles again, dirt just doesn't stick, and when it rains, it is like you just washed your vehicle, and in beta testing, this is a killer ad campaign as I park at local car washes and get dozens of sales, like taking candy from a baby. lol
And here is another example of my newest business, a new Streaming Technology which allows you to watch all the TV, Movies, Sports and Pay Per View programming for Free, unlimited, no more cable or satellite fees, and when I park in cable TV building where people make payments, I am killing it, dozens of sales in just a a couple hours of parking my car near entrance or exit of parking lot. Just love this business, so easy, so powerful, and my little Mobile LED Signs do all the work while I shop or take a walk leaving my car at in parking lot.
Success to all,
