    I currently am trying to do offline/online marketing for my bridal shop. I have done the traditional newspaper, radio, and magazine but am looking for something more out of the box. Any suggestions?

    Thanks,

    Lasher

    wedding shows
    mailing lists of bridal magazine etc
    video companies
    photographers
    jewelry stores

    are all good sources of leads, which can get kicked back a percentage of each sale.
    churches can get a donation of x amt for everything booked.

    Definitly advertise in chruches and explain you'll donate 10% or whatever to the chruch as a donation for helping you get the leads, I can see that working out very nicely, create a website, then look into google maps, that can be a great source of traffic, then build up your websites SEO and start ranking for some terms like 'south england bridal shop' (example)

    List on Google Places, upload 6 or so pics (put keywords in pic titles) create a free 30 second video on Animoto using the pics and free music they supply and upload from there to youtube.
    Write a keyword rich description and tags on Places and youtube. Get free listing on yell.com.
    Submit and in 24 hours you should see yourself first page in google for at least one of your keywords alongside a map. Let me know if you want more info or for more detailed info download gmaps cash from download section. what's your location?

    Use a wordpress website with your exact keywords as domain, example: "bridal shop" (if it's available) or something like "bridal shop wedding", etc.

    Use Ankur's services on BHW:

    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/buy-sell-services/48146-social-bookmarking-25-50-100and-200-bookmarking-sites-4-a.html

    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/buy-sell-services/38120-manual-directory-submissions-pr0-pr8-directories-quality-fast-results.html

    Then go to Forums Digitalpoint and ask for link exchanges for your site.

    Install All In One SEO Pack, Google Sitemap XML, WP Google Analytics, etc for your wordpress website.

    Rank high = make money.

    Hey Lasher,

    I helped out my fathers local building/construction/etc. supplies company with some advertising. It's amazing what little offline ideas and even some local online ideas can do.

    Throw me a PM and I'll shoot some of these ideas/methods/etc. your way!

    Sorry for not getting back to this thread sooner. Thanks for all the replies. I currently have a wordpress up,but my aim is to try to get more traffic to it, which I haven't been that successful with. I also have an online store that I am trying to work with too. Thanks for all the replies and I will definitely try some of the ideas that were offered.

    Thanks again,

    Lasher
