    A great idea for your offline marketing is to use drop cards. They look like a $100 bill on one side and on the other side you put your marketing message or your website. Drop on the ground and someone will definitely pick it up. Hence the term Drop Cards. A good company to get more info is http://www.dollarcardmarketing.com. I am not affiliated with these people but they have youtube videos you can watch on their website to get ideas on how to use the drop cards. Good luck :)

    I tell my clients to put their URL on all of their promotional material including flyers, business cards, business mail, ect. It should be right there with their Name, address, phone numbers. If you have a marketing budget run ads in local papers, rent a billboard, or another form of advertising that I've found is fairly cheap is an ad on the inside of public buses. I checked into it and it was about $10 per month (depending on your city of course).

    To attract larger sales volume employing targeted magazine advertisement is better option. But any kind of online marketing variant products online mode of advertisement shall suit better.

    Welcome to eforum :)

    I think that's a great idea but I can only guess at the price of advertising in a major publication such as PC World. It ranks right up there with running ads on Prime Time TV.

    Of course the idea is still valid and there are many publications that are locally targeted and those would certainly be more affordable.

    You can send pamphlets or brochures, but take note that it will take time.

    As an Internet professional, you know getting a business online is no longer considered “a plan for the future”. The five ideas of working on offline marketing are
    1. Business cards,
    2. Mailers
    3.Promotional products
    4.QR codes/Networking
    5.Meet Ups/Events/Newsletters
    The advantage of working in offline marketing is to establish personal connections with their customers, which can build loyalty.The offline model is the only option for many businesses.

    Offline strategies for marketing, advertising, and selling are engrained in the culture of the way that the world does business, so it's important to find ways to continue being involved in offline marketing, while still funneling people into your online channels.

    Certainly. You have every reason to use offline marketing. Some of the marketing paraphernalia you may want to use could be any or all of the following:
    1. door hangers
    2. calendars
    3. magnets
    4. newsletters
    5. postcards
    6. flyers
    7. business cards
    8. tear-off postcards
    If you combine these materials together, you'll have more marketing prowess.

    Offline marketing still works great. Whenever we get flyers at the office we still check it out especially if it's for food since chances are we are already tired of the usual spots we get our food from, so we're highly likely to check new ones out even if they only give us a couple of flyers instead of the fancy digital promotions most people are coming up with these days.

    First thought that came to mind was to utilize "word of mouth". To be efficient, however, you must make yourself available to the public. For example, attend social events and gatherings, especially those that resonate with networking. Would definitely invest in detailed brochures, maybe the use of direct mail. Would also think about a promotional event.
