Last week's survey results...
 
 
Given the many means to advertise our print business, which method has given the greatest ROI?
  • WORD OF MOUTH is the best - costs nothing but to be awesome at what you do. WORK VEHICLE SIGNAGE - costs the signwriter materials only and gets seen on every job (also has to be awesome :-) GOOGLE - who doesn't use it? (but requires an awesome website.
  • I never advertise other than my website
    To advertise looks like you are desperate.
    A good sign company has 1000's of referees and happy clients.
     
  • Good old fashioned unaddressed DL mailers distributed through AusPost to businesses. 
  • Having a good website and being found on Google, above the directory listings (who just list your opposition anyhow). Running a campaign of Google Adwords (with an independent supplier, not through the directories (again, that would be paying for your oppositions' ads to be viewed too). Direct, personalised mail, promotions and a regular e-newsletter. 
  • Personal referral is my best ROI. I work hard to keep my clients in the loop and I contact them on a regular basis, often not even talking about work. I make note on any conversation I have. If they aren't well I follow up, if they have a birth pending i keep in touch, if they have a holiday coming up, I'll welcome them home... and it costs me nothing but my time. 
  • We have used this magazine and others to do mail shots to their database in order to chase trade work - that has worked quite well, at least we covered our costs and gained a few clients. A good web site is vital and of course word of mouth is also one of the best ways of recruiting new business. Testimonial advertising is also great and perhaps the best form of advertising. 

(As a publishing practice to protect ourselves from any potential liability, company and individual names that are referred to negatively in any of these comments are removed.
In addition we reserve the right to remove comments that are blatant advertising for one product or company)
