To take a bit of the pain away from this selection process, here now are five great ideas for ways to get people talking about what your business is and what it has to offer.


Putting together an elegant and informative brochure then having it delivered around your local area is a sure fire way to get customers familiar with you can provide them. If you have a background in graphic design then this is perhaps something that you can create and lay-out yourself, however if your strengths lie elsewhere (your core business for example) then perhaps you could consider making use of a brochure creating service. These are usually printing companies that allow you to submit your own ideas as to how the brochure should look or make use of brochure templates that they have available. Once you have signed off on the final design they will be printed and delivered to you, for dispatch around town by yourself or an external brochure distribution company.

Phone Directory

Although the Internet has become the number one resource for finding information about what products and services are available in a particular area, the old fashioned phone book is still made use of by a large, generally older, part of the population. For a small listing fee you can make sure that you’re business is visible to these people, which is particularly beneficial if the items you’re selling or services you’re offering are more applicable to older folk.

Print media

Radio and Television

    All your points are great but I would have to say that your online presence is the #1 in my mind. Google is know the number one source for information online. Too often brochures and print media end up in the round file (trash can) where as online searches are active information seekers.
