In order to make your online and offline auto business successful it is vital that you promote it vigorously. It is something that you really cannot afford to let up on for even a second because your competitors will gain the advantage on you as soon as you do.
There are many ways to promote your auto business, both online ways and offline way, and here are just a few ideas to help get your brain ticking:
Coupons – Everybody enjoys a good bargain, don’t we? So what better way to gain some interest than to offer a discount coupon and submit the coupon to the various coupon & discount sites that are popping up all over the place.
Press releases – If your business has regular news then you will find a press release to be a real boom, many sites and blogs will pick them up if it relates to their niche as they are always looking for fresh content.
Craig’s List & GumTree – You will have heard of Craig’s List but you might not be familiar with GumTree, it is the UK version of Craig’s List. They are great free places to advertise your services.
Local newspapers – Whenever my family wanted car parts or a new car they would always check the local newspaper, even today if you check the back of your local newspaper you will find plenty of auto companies advertising their services. Might be a bit pricey but is the safer option.
Stickers – Stickers and labels are a fantastic pay of catching the attention of others, how many times have you seen a sticker in the back window of a car and it caught your eye? And thanks to companies like MaverickLabel.com it doesn’t cost as much as you would think.
Business cards – Business cards are also a popular method of advertising as they are a rather cheap option and people normally keep hold of them. I have quite a collection of cards from my local taxi companies.
These are just a small selection of methods to help get you started, there are plenty of other ways to promote your business both online and offline.
