    So I work for a company that does printing mainly vinyl banners and banner stands. What other ways besides SEO/Social Media/Video Sites, and Adwords bring in traffic to a company's ecommerce site? The only things I can think up is advertising on industry magazines but are there other ways to advertise your company site effectively offline?

    I've recently started voice-broadcasts and have had good success with it. I will say that it does take a little cash to run. But I have over a 1000% ROI with every campaign that I have sent using it thus far. Hope this helps.

    I think voice broadcasting is good too but you have to be careful because if you get the wrong person angry, you can get into a lot of trouble. I've heard of peope getting sued for this. The key is to deal with lead providers that are reputable.

    Oh yea, people get mad. Fortunately I am not taking the risk for getting sued when I run these campaigns and no I will not discuss how I remove myself from said risk. As far as people hanging up, this happens and is good I would rather them hang up than press 1 to connect to one of my live agents and rip them a new one. Please understand also that if someone stays on the line long enough to listen to the message and be transferred the guy/gal wants to be sold and thats all there is to it. I will also tell you that the provider I use and there are plenty out there have a built in DNC list that will remove numbers from the National DNC list. I hope this helps you a little more.

    Have you tried Google tv commercials?

    Sending postcards to your local demographic.
    Put those same postcards or flyers under windshield wipers of vehicles.
    Slip in flyers with the local newspaper distributors.
    Fundraisers.
    Partner with local radio stations and throw a publicity event. Go to clubs and hand out some free swag.

    Put ads on those big billboards you see in high traffic areas. Same goes for bus stop ads.
    Seriously there are tons of ways to do it, just open your mind. Everytime you see something that advertises a person, place ,or thing then try to put that into your arsenal with your own twist.

    Direct opt-in mailing lists to different households as long as they consent. Also just talking to people, handing out business cards.
