    I pay news paper sellers to put my advertisement in every newspaper which is quiet cheap for me.(less then $10)


    There is any other method is available excepting this methods.

    1. Ad in Newspaper seller.
    2. Paying shop owner to use your ad-sticker on products or pack or use your bags which contain your advertisement.
    3. Banner on Road/houses.

    If you know any other then it will be helpful for me.

    Sending postcards is a good method if you know your niche/market, grab your potential clients from yellowpage/google and send them a postcard, still working very well...

    Depends on the vandalism rules of your country, but stickers in places where people stop (traffic crossings for example) can work pretty well.

    for this there are lot of ways .
    you can print your adv, and spread the, in my area they cost around 12 $ for 1000 copies , for small size double color and spread them , to spread them hire an boy, they can spread them to targeted places ,
    another you can talk with public transport services, auto , taxi, to display your, banner, you can ask them to come daily and show me my banner, and take your piece.
    if you have a real place where people actually come and buy your product, and a market is real close to you, where traffic is high, you can hire a men on commission bases , that will bring customer to your site, and do his job on road, fetching customers and send them to your place, normally you cna place them near your competition places


    u know the response in most cases is only 2% for these .. best of luck with your job :)

    I guess it depends on what you're advertising. I'll make the assumption you're offering SEO services, and if that's the case I would look at joining a local chapter or BNI or your local chamber of commerce if your in the US. Networking with local business owners will cost you more time then money though.

    I agree. I joined a couple local chapters as well as attended a few meetups.

    I got a few leads from that, but most importantly, I met a few great friends/mentors who gave me good advice. I would suggest giving it a shot yourself.

    it will depend on the product you are providing. I guess promoting your product on the roads can be more helpful. that is holding roadshows but that can be expensive but effective, you can hire announcers to walk on the streets promoting your product or sales men. you can also use your own car to advertise your product, just put posters on it or customize it with your brand name and I believe you will not pay for that. I believe my input is of some help to you. all the best

    Hi buddy!
    You have used very useful offline advertisements and these are reliable and helpful.
    You should have to give ads on novels or books to get more better results.

    I think direct mail marketing is the best and ideal way of offline marketing as I have done that and find it really useful for any sort of business. Keep in mind choosing the right provider for the campaign. I consulted with Troi Mailing Services and did the marketing campaign.

    You could pay a homeless guy $5 a day to hold up a sign.
