Use Social Media
Know you audience. Ask yourself about your chosen market and what social media platforms they might be using. Are you going to email or send direct mail to the business owner or a certain employee? Don't send spam but join in on the chat in Twitter.
Place your ads in search engines and sign up for Adwords. Use online and print trade directories and make your ads easy to skim but still effective.
Always have an offer in your advertising promotion. This will give the prospect a reason to respond to your advertisement. Offering something useful has been known to significantly increase your response rate. Try to make your offer interesting and something that the prospect will feel is some value. For example, if you are marketing to small businesses offer a free information package, a free download of a special report, or a free calculator.
