    Thanx mate some good and simple methods here. Driving traffic to the net using offline methods has not been fully exploited yet. And many cost nothing only a little ceativity and some time

    on the subject of business cards - dont print your own order some good ones, not from vistaprint either, either overnightprints or 4over

    they must be at least 15pt stock, with rounded corners, and color both sides - spot gloss or gloss and metallics work nice too - most business owners are used to being handed shitty business cards, stand out from the crowd as first impressions last...

    not to mention thicker cards usually will increase your changes and win you more door prizes at expos and conferences! lol i won office 2007 professional two weeks ago! there such a thing as blackhat business cards lol i guess there is now! :)

    Thanks for the tip. I was looking for a better place than vistaprint. There quality always sucked but the others were a little too high for the marketing I was doing. Right now I need postcards, so I appreciate the tip.

    Cheers!

    Here's one more to add to your list create a MeetUp group, advertise on those receipts you get at the grocery store, place fliers on peoples doors.

    Very helpful article. Greatly appreciate the share :)
    Will implement some of the strategies for general advertising.
    It's a lot about common knowledge but it's just vocalising and reinforcing the idea.
