Hello All, Most of you will of seen my recent threads on different things mostly in the offline section. Why? well because ive tried internet marketing and made bits of cash here and there but I think offline is mostly where its at and where I want to focus. So what am I doing exactly? well im targeting my County of 600k people with multiple large towns and all in reach of me. Since I know this and know what ive learned from the other threads ive quized some business owners I know from a variety of things from hairdressers to car garages to paving stone factories to large industrial units selling signage etc. The general consensus from these people is no one will pay even 30 pound a month for things like seo as they just dont understand it and dont want to be tied down monthly. Now note that these people ive asked know me fairly well and its not a case of being a bad salesman its a case of their opinion. They have all told me that they just simply do not understand seo and online marketing and even after explaining dont see it as a needed business expense. I even asked them about like 30 pound a month and all think its to expensive.. Most of them said directories are a good thing that they would pay for if it was about 20 a year and actually got traffic which it would Now in the area i live in the north east of england theres not a huge 'low income' majority but it is mostly comprised of smaller shops from things such as picture frame shops to small hardware shops and all of those kind of things just small shops in general small businesses. We have the larger businesses as well and the national chains but we dont have bigger local businesses as such and its mostly as mentioned small shops. Note that the above makes up a good 90% of my area. How do you propose I target these places? theres also lots of fly by night businesses such as people working in factories and also doing tvs and computers and electrical and that sort of stuff. Could I potentially make as much money by selling more lower priced goods as they would be easier to shift? I previously lived in australia where it was much different. Thanks.
