Offline advertising

Selling and recruiting in your own town is very important. Online advertising helps out a lot, but getting to really know your customers is the topping on the cake.

Here's a couple of ways:

-Advertise on bulletin boards around town. Along with leaving flyer's, catalogs, business cards. Think, Grocery Stores, beauty salons (just about everyone picks up a magazine when their getting their hair done , might as well be your catalog :), local stores and shops.

-Get your name in the paper. If you live in a small town advertising in your local paper can be inexpensive. If you have a big budget advertise in papers in towns around you.

- Get your business in the radio, once again most small towns don't require a large amount for a quick advertisement.

-Place your business card in any outgoing mail. Bills, newsletters, anything you may sell on eBay and others. You would be surprised at how many will keep that card and may even give you a call about a purchase or a recruit.

-Have an open house! Of course you are going to want to advertise this. When people come, you will want to tell them about the business, make some sales, and hopefully even have people join. Make sure everyone leaves with a catalog, and you leave with names and numbers.

These are just a few ideas. Do you have any other ideas? what have worked for you
