I spoke to a gentleman today about some advertising. He said that there was a radio station doing a live auction for projects. I would state how much it was and what I was willing to do and they would give me that much of radio advertisement. Then they sell it for half the amount of the job. My problem is I am having trouble thinking of what would best help me advertise the vertical concrete, now remember this is all free! I will have to pay for all the material and labor for the job. Any ideas are appreciated.
Was thinking of an outside firepit, outside grill with concrete countertops just a couple ideas i had.
I would sugest that , get your owne stuff first going , a website , online yellow pages, organic pages on internet , youtube videos of your work, google places with your information and profile , reviews of your clients on you google pages also helps , then work to optimize all this .
Radio , TV, direct mail, book yellow pages , flyers, it can be very expensevi and costly, and is more likely people will save all that and just troll on garbage days after .
Note: A Person that sell for you usually makes 3% to 15% on the sale if you pay more you looking to be taking money from your owne poket .
Good luck Dale
hey there dale!! im not familiar with radio adv in general butt i can tell you from experience that something people can see and touch is by far the best way i have found for selling vert. pictures are good but seeing is believing apparently because thats how i got my basement job and mostly when i build a terrarium i just build it with no customer once i get it in the pet store it might take a few but it sells. i have posted items and stuff on craigs list with pics and only had a few tire kickers.
i guess i have a hard time seeing how radio adv will work when most people dont even know what it is that we do or the infinite capabilities.
srry if that sounds negative but i just feel you might have better luck with more visible forms of adv. with that said if its free go for it cuz you never know you just might get a great job out of it!!
good luck dale!! im rootin for yah!
