Cost Effective Ways To Market Your Business

Cost Effective Ways To Market Your Business

Many small businesses struggle with the investment required to distribute marketing materials. Though they know every marketing effort should be considered an investment with an expected return, limited budgets mean they can’t risk the entire business by hinging it on the success of any given campaign.

Marketing distribution is one of the biggest barriers to small business success. Sure, you can print postcards cheap, but you’ll still have to pay postage to deliver them to your target audience. Fortunately, several marketing tools can be distributed without postage costs. When you employ these marketing tools, you only need to invest a bit of your time to reach a potentially-enormous number of people.

By taking a little time to distribute your own marketing materials, you can save money and increase your return on investment, helping to ensure your marketing campaign yields outstanding profits. Here are five marketing tools you can distribute on your own.

 

·        Business Cards

Printing business cards is a must if you want to have a powerful business networking presence, but not all business cards are created equal. In fact, after networking events most business cards end up thrown in the trash. Turn the back of your business card into a coupon or coupon code. Make it time-limited to motivate fast response. If your offer is good enough, qualified prospects will want to take advantage of it before your expiration date.

·        Flyers

Flyers are mini-posters, perfect for community bulletin boards and to hand directly to passers-by, such as with club card flyers. Since they’re smaller, flyers aren’t quite as attention-getting as posters; however, they’re able to be placed nearly anywhere, which gives them greater reach. Blanket your community with flyers, and you’ll get the message out cheap and easy.

·        Door hangers

Door hanger marketing is the perfect way to pack the punch of a postcard with none of the postage fees. In fact, door hangers can be even more powerful since they’re placed directly on door knobs and not in mailboxes with the rest of the mail. You can distribute door hangers to selected neighborhoods that meet your target demographics.

 

 

The best promotional products are going to be ones that people use every day. Sticky pads, note pads, and pens are the most effective promotional products for most businesses. People need them, use them daily, and they are relatively cheap. Unless you have something very unique that people will use very often, or you have a budget that allows you to purchase really cool promo products like USB memory cards, go with pens, notepads, and sticky pads.
