 Where a Small Business Should Advertise on the Internet
Instead of spend­ing your online adver­tis­ing dol­lars on big sites like the Yel­low Pages, a local News sta­tion and so on, look for pop­u­lar blogs writ­ten pri­mar­i­ly by stay at home moms. Thou­sands of moms are get­ting con­nect­ed these days by writ­ing blogs and using Twit­ter to pro­mote their blogs. Spend some time look­ing at who fol­lows these blogs and deter­mine if it is a good place for you to place an ad. I think you’ll find a very loy­al audi­ence. I’d sug­gest not only a small ad but also ask­ing if you can be a guest blog­ger too. So stop spend­ing mon­ey on the big guys and go to a more tar­get­ed audi­ence. Just make sure that when you place an ad that the major­i­ty of the sub­scribers, fol­low­ers and vis­i­tors are local to you…not nation­wide. Nation­wide does not mean you should not place an ad, but just don’t spend too much. Here are a few exam­ples of what I mean: 1. Exam­ple 1 2. Exam­ple 2 3. Exam­ple 3
