5 Creative Ways to Advertise

December 5, 2018

At Social Network MD, we specialize in devising creative ways to advertise for our clients, but we recognize that not all businesses are the same.

Some will prefer more conventional ways and others will prefer new and innovative ways that include the use of technology. We want to help your business grow in either scenario. To give you an idea of our expertise we have put together a list of 5 creative ways to advertise that are a mix of both old school and new school techniques.
  1. Pay-Per-Click (PPC) Advertising

Online ads are the most effective way to drive traffic to your online business. Pay-per-click ads like Google Ads help to connect the right customers with your products or services. Social Network MD is experienced with PPC management. Your online business will generate income and save money on online advertisement.  
  1. Ask for Customer Referrals

Referrals are one of the “old school” creative ways to advertise, but it’s certainly effective. It’s one of the best ways to grow your business. In order to get them, you must ask. Don’t assume your clients or customers will do this one their own. You must take the initiative, be proactive, and adopt the habit of asking each and every one of your customers for referrals.  
  1. Have Your Product or Services Reviewed

This is along the lines as number 2. Find influential bloggers in your industry and ask them to review your products or services. Offer them a free product or service to use in exchange for their honest review. You’ll find that most people will be happy to do this. It’s actually a win-win situation because the blogger has the opportunity to create new content on their site and you have the potential to create a buzz and receive publicity from their audience.  
  1. Offer Free Workshops and Classes

This is specific for your company and we understand that not all businesses will have this option to offer, however, it’s one of the creative ways to advertise. People love free stuff, right? Offer free workshops and classes, if applicable, in your niche to your local community. This will provide you with an opportunity to truly showcase your expertise while promoting your services and business.  
  1. Actively Contribute To Online Forums In Your Niche

Depending on your industry, there are online forums and websites that are relevant to your business. Find them and actively participate in their groups and discussions. Locating online communities of people discussing and seeking information on what you do can be really beneficial for your business. They will see your company’s name and will be drawn to your site. This is another one of the creative ways to advertise your business and develop an excellent reputation.
