What Is The Best Way To Advertise My Business?

by tyankee7 on March 12, 2013

Post your WANT. It’s like Craigslist, but reversed. And really different. At Ubokia, you’re the rockstar. Post exactly what you want and sellers respond to you. Only talk to sellers you choose.

Question by Crissy: What Is The Best Way To Advertise My Business?
We run an auto repair business and on the side we buy junk cars and haul them away for free. The only part of our business that we need advertising for is the junk car service but advertising online and in newspapers has failed. The local phone book is not accepting new listing at this time. Can someone give me some other ideas on advertising?

Forget about the phone book and newspapers. No one even reads those things anymore; at least not in print format. I don’t know when the last one will be printed on dead trees but I bet it will be within the next 5-10 years.

I recommend taking out ad space on a billboard next to the interstate or somewhere a lot of people go by. Also keep posting your stuff on all the free places on the internet like craigslist.

I saw you stated that your try on the internet did not work. What did you do? Did you guys make a website, and get it to rank well with your key words (junk car service etc,,,)? Was the website easy to navigate, and did it pull up on a Google search? Also, Craigslist seems to be very popular for things like this.

I must admit, online should be your first thoughts.

The internet tends to be the first place people go to ‘search’ for a service, product etc.

Compared to the internet, not much people will make the effort to dig out their phonebook to flick through pages upon pages.

Try free classifed ad sites. Especially ones local to you.

I’d recommened http://www.esnoozer.com

I’ve had quite a bit of luck with them, and most importantly their free AND frequently visited.

Good luck!

Offline methods – newspaper inserts, placing a banner or bunting at high human traffic areas, car windscreen sticker, promotional booth at fair or exhibition, etc,

Online methods – the best way to advertise any business is via the internet. It can be free, hassle-free, efficient, targeted, flexible, economical, borderless, etc.. Best advice from professional webmasters is to find those top ranking, popular websites on the internet by googling targeted search keywords such as ~ Biggest Classifieds, Free Classifieds Directory, Community Classifieds. Post Free Ads at such places do not cost you money. You can also go for paid advertisements if you want.

When advertising online, submit it to google places and to local business directories
