Don’t Ignore Old-fashioned Offline Promotion

So you have a Facebook page, a Twitter account, email newsletters and a website optimized for search engines and mobile users. Now don’t forget good old-fashioned offline promotion.

A few years back, marketing firm iProspect found that two-thirds of online searchers are driven by information obtained offline. That’s a pretty amazing statistic for a world that has largely become Web-focused. That number may have come down a bit as mobile internet usage has soared, but it’s still a very telling data point.

So what lessons should you draw from that fact? Be sure to include an email address, website and social media information on all your marketing materials, including business cards, brochures, flyers, invoices and even product packaging. Make slogans and product names catchy and memorable enough so people remember them when they go to search.

Advertising, direct mailings, trade shows, conferences, networking events and any other public appearance you can think of can also generate interest and leads and build your brand. So get out there and establish yourself as an expert and promote your brand in the process. You need to be as active offline as you are online.

I just recently set myself free by learning to trade and anybody can do this as far as I'm concerned you just need to go to the right place. Check out the website Traders Superstore, just Google them you should be able to find them, these guys are really doing it right and make you wonder why everybody isn't like them. You can make $2000 a week trading all you need to do is learn how, if I can do it anybody can.
