Just wondering what percentage of people on here actually pay either monthly or annually for business advertising online for either text links, banner ads? On Google, Bing, Anoox, etc.?
And do you find it effective? If yes, what is the most effective online advertising method?
Well, advertisement for business is mandatory. Without investing its impossible to earn. Modern promotional Technics have been changed due to internet and exceed of mobile devices use. mobile marking, email marketing, online promotions, search engine marking all these things are new ways. Relive me it give output compare to traditional magazine advertisement. all you need to be mart while investing in advertisement actually its mandatory. We do advertisement for out Web hosting company in UAE name *** SPAM FILTERED ***, got handsome output from many online advertisement platform including Anoox
I think our best choice for Advertising is online Advertising, for small businesses. Since Print, TV, Radio Advertising is not targeted at all as you have NO idea who saw your Advertising or who if any clicked to your Site from such Advertising. So for Print, TV, Radio Advertising you need Millions and Millions of Dollars to reach your audience, and hence only suitable for Big Businesses. And of online Advertising, I have to say that Anoox is by far the best, really GOD sent for small businesses. I just hope Big business does not take them out.
The more accurate question is:
1- Why does Advertising cost so much? After all, have you checked out the cost of Advertising on a major National or International Media outlet? They easily cost $25,000 and much more per Ad.
2- Why does Google Advertising cost so much and it is so hard to track?
3- What is a Small business with $1000 per Month Advertising budget and less to do then?
A friend of mine swears by Google Ads, I personally try to find as many ways to advertise on-line for free. Google MyBusiness is a good place to start, you add your details and you will receive a card from Google sent to your home or business address which has a few numbers on it, you use these to activate your free listing. There are so many places on-line where you can advertise for free and here are just a few of them. Scoot, 192, Yell, Bing, Yelp, freeindex, gumtree, The Independent, The Sun, Cyclex, ThomsonLocal, TouchLocal, UK Places, Foursquare, Opendi and many more. Try searching for "free advertising directories" when you have tried the ones I have listed here. It does not cost anything, only the time it takes to add your business details.
