    So I have an extremely affordable design business that's outsourced. Really cheap high quality stuff.

    I'm wondering where the best place is to promote it. I tried doing like 20 ads on Craigslist and got zero bites.

    Any ideas?

    Create a brief Youtube video that showcases slides if some of your work, and offers special pricing on graphic "package" deals.

    Use a powerful or intriguing title, like:

    "Jaw-Dropping Graphic Design"

    - OR -

    "Don't Look At These Images"

    - OR -

    "Hypnotic Graphics"

    - OR -

    "Edible Graphics . . . Yum-m-m-m!"

    You get the idea . . .

    Cheers! - "Wiz"

    I don't know much about graphic design but I know my fair share about marketing. So if we create the senario that you want to open a shoe shop, would you open it in a street full
    of shoe shops or a street full of tailors? The majority of people would go for the street
    full of taylors because there would be no competition but they would be wrong. The place
    to open your shop would be the street full of shoe shops because that's where people go
    to buy shoes.
    So if you get my jest put yourself up where other graphic disigners promote and grab your
    share of the market.

    Thanks! Anymore.

    I mean it's so cheap it's practically free. I'm targeting it towards people starting new small businesses.
