What low-budget advertisements can I use to promote my business?
There are many options available on the Internet to get started.
Creating a website for Business to showcase your product or services is the most common way. Using different social media platforms is the most common way to promote. But not all Business should advertise their service or product on all or even some social media.
Not all Social Media are the right tools for the job.
Doing so will make your website available for people looking Google.com
When visitors are on your website, they can view your goods and services. Make sure your site has an action request. Meaning that your website should ask for the sale.
Key Actions Words: Claim your Discount! | Learn More | Schedule Here | Talk with John| Add to Cart | and so on.
If your site does not have Key Actions Words, then we recommend WpLynks and have them review your site for free.
Video Killed the Radio Star isn’t Always the Case!
Online Radio Stations can offer a good price to advertise. Check the price on their non-peak hours. Reach out to your local radio station and ask for their rates and how to get a discount. Exchange promotes; add their logo to your website in exchange for a discount. This can create a great relationship.
Try your local television station, and ask for their rate on their non-prime hour slot. Note: most starts after 12 am. Always compare prices by contacting a few local tv stations to make that you are getting the best deal. Once again, ask them if there is something that your business can offer for a discount, it never hurts to negotiate…

Do newspapers still have readers?
Depending on the age group that you want to reach, you can still use ads for like let’s say, baby boomers. Newspapers can get your business information out there. Choose a newspaper in your local area. Classifieds are a low-budget advertisement avenue for your business. Ask if they have special offers. Find out in detail about the pricing structure for the size of the advertisements. The number of words and font size.
Do you have your Business Card handy?
Even though psychical business cards don’t seem to be handy anymore. What about sending your Business contact information without being too personal?
Are your Current Customers talking about your Business?
Aside from all the Social Media platforms that you can use to post all day. The one true low budget advertisementis your current Customers. Your current customers have the biggest influence on your potential new customers. So how do you go about asking your current Customers to sponsor your business?
Reviews: It seems easy but makes sure that you look for platforms that don’t ask for too much information. GMB and Facebook are great since they already have an account with either or…
Mailing-list: Try to Invoice your customer their bills. Since they will open them and it will become your gateway to send two one promotes.
Social Media Groups: If you have a store or restaurant. Having Customers join these groups can get your menu of the day to them. And or if you have a clothing store, you can showcase it to them first. (I have watched as a lady in LA went live on Facebook and IG to sell her products to local Neighbors. She had her daughter visit each location. Asking them to join their Facebook group. This may not be something you would do. Yet asking your customer to join your group is a good thing. Make sure you tell them it for VIP Customers and they get first Dibs on your products.
* Note: Make sure that you have a few days specials ready for customers ahead of time. Most people share images of food. Since they never know what it would like, make sure it looks clean.
