Strapped for cash but want to advertise? Advertising is a competitive field where prices can be very high for high quality work. Fortunately for everyone there are plenty of ways in which advertising can be done economically. It is important to advertise because in this day and age of information overload, only targeted information goes into a potential customer’s brain. Here are a few ways in which you can gather a crowd without spending too much dough.
Spread the Word
Social media is one of the biggest blessings of this century because most social media sites are free and the allow people to connect to events without having to pay for the privilege. It also allows organizers to spread the word without incurring any special cost themselves. Get people interested in your venture by creating events online, sharing it on your time lines and feeds and basically inviting a virtual audience to participate. In many cases, people will turn up when they hear about the hype online that when they see the event announced physically on a billboard or something.
People will be more excited and interested in advertisements that they can interact with, so don’t just stick to boring old posters; do a pull up banner, a life sized photo frame etc. and get people involved. Kids especially will love something they can play with so be as inventive as possible. You will be able to grab the attention of passers-by and get them involved as well. If you can get a small knot of people to form around your event, then it’s a guarantee that you will get more curious onlookers participating. Spend your money wisely on one cool, interactive display and you will get your money’s worth for sure.
The old fashioned way of grabbing attention for events and getting a crowd going is to put up posters and hand out leaflets. This is a slower way to attract attention than the present trade show or pop up display because the word spreads one on one, unless someone shares a picture of a leaflet or poster and it goes viral. The only benefit is that the only thing this method uses up is energy; it is simple, inexpensive and requires little to no initial investment. Once you have the capital lined up, it is a breeze to get all these things printed and then sorted out.After you decide on what avenue you will go down, you can figure out how much you will need to invest in order to have something that is high quality as well as worth your time and money. The effectiveness can depend on a lot of factors however, so don’t pin all your hopes on one avenue alone. Click here for more info on pop up display.
