Your Favorite OFFLINE Marketing Methods

17 replies
I'm inspired by another post which lists all the different type of online marketing methods, both free and paid. Then someone mentioned 'did we forget offline is great too?'

So what are your most recommended offline marketing methods, my friends?

    Telemarketing. However, this would depend on the industry you are in.

    One method that I use constantly is...Classified Ads.
    This works really well.
    It's simple & cheap to implement.

        Much better to have them call. Local business owners will prefer to call you. Obviously put an email address/website on there but believe me it's much easier for them to respond by primarily calling. It really hammers home that you're local too.

    Cold calling and e-mail are the worst ways, hands down.

    Try sending a FedEx letter detailing ALL THE THINGS you know about your prospect. Let them know about all the money they are leaving on the table (and give proof.) Let them know about the money they are constantly losing. Don't sell anything. Just show them the money. I send 3-4 pages of personalized content FedEx, and you'd better believe that they read it all. Because it is about THEM, not you.

    Many call back. And the closing ratio will be very high. For big bucks.

    Go after the people with the big budgets who are advertising every month.

    Best of luck!

      Wow! This sounds interesting. Can you elaborate on what is "all the money they are leaving on the table" and "the money they are constantly losing"?

      'Worst ways' is subjective. Some do very well utilizing those methods.

      My favorite way? I'm with Mr Ross with direct mail... that said, I like
      to have a marketing mix. No one way works that well to forsake all
      others.

      When possible I combine direct mail, email and a phone call (not 'cold
      calling' as I warmed them with prior contact).

      KILLER combination for B2B

        Cold calling or as some call it telemarketing. We also are not afraid of walking in and asking for the business either. I guess that would be called cold walking
