Build Your Product Business with Local Advertising

Need more business?

I’ve built my business foundation running ads in local weekly newspapers.

I’ve been doing this since 1999, so I’d say it’s working pretty good.

I have customers that are still ordering products from me month after month, and I haven’t spoken with them in over SEVENTEEN YEARS.

This is REAL residual income, wouldn’t you say?

OK, so just how do I go about this?

First, I run product ads looking for customers.

I ALWAYS lead with the product, because I want customers first…

Then, if they want to refer other people to the product, I help them with that.

I only run my ads in WEEKLY papers.

Not only do they cost less than dailies, but they are a lot more effective.

I run ads in the “ad papers”, like Thrifty Nickel and Penny Savers.

But, there are also thousands of local weekly newspapers out there published in small towns and suburbs.

These papers are gold.

Quite often you can get an ad in them for just like $5.00 – $10.00 a week.

And many of them are part of a chain, where someone owns 5 or 8 or 20 publications,
and you can get a great deal if you run your ad in all of the papers.

Don’t try to sell your product with your ad.

Make your ad short, find out how many words you get for the minimum price.

You are just looking for people that are interested in what you have.

You can sell them later.

I run ads offering “Free Information”.



The people that respond are interested in what I have.

My “Free Information Package” will typically include a cover letter, a product brochure, and a CD or DVD (if I have one) and an order form where they can order from me at a “special” price.

That’s it.

And, you don’t have to be limited to your local area.

I run these ads all over the country.

You can find a listing of most local papers at Gebbie Press.

Church bulletins and newspapers are awesome also.

Many of my best customers have come from a church publication.

So, if you want to build your product business, this is one way that is proven to work.

Best of Success!
