Whether you offer a product or service it’s always good to advertise. But it can get rather expensive on many of the high visible, high profile platforms like Youtube and Facebook without the right strategy and experience.
Thankfully there are other places that, while lesser known, can be just as effective in getting the word out for your product or service.
These include places where you can rent someone else’s “land” like Search Engine Journal, CodePen, and LaughingSquid. You can also consider buying ad space from artists on Instagram, working with Dribble, using Internet radio, and buying space on discount billboards.
Each of these options are worth considering and, in the article linked to below, they go into more detail on how to broaden the approach and get the word out about whatever you’re trying to sell.
In addition, you get a rough price range for how much each method will cost to start. As such it’s well worth a read…you can thank me later.
- Buy a sponsored blog post on the blog site, “The LaughingSquid” and your site’s message could potentially reach over two million browsers.
- For less than $700, you could partner with Startup Curated, a newsletter with more than 20,000 subscribers.
- Locate musicians, artists, or authors with large followings and pay them to promote your product.
“For $1,200 you can get a sponsored post on Search Engine Journal including prominent placement in their weekly newsletter sent to 31,000 subscribers.”
