Advertise on local websites such as ones for the local news tv channel, or local newspaper, or even on yellow pages websites. You could also run print ads in local newspapers, mail flyers to residents and businesses in the area, and/or advertise in the local printed yellow pages and phone book.

I was wondering if someone could help me out. I am starting my dog walking business. I have already gotten a few customers. I am thinking of advertising by using flyers but I have heard that it is illegal to post flyers around in NYC.
Besides Craigslist.org what would be the best website to advertise my business? Is there a website where people go to find dog walkers?

Answer by Asher Heimermann
You could advertise on my website (www.AsherHeimermann.com). I charge $ 15/month for a banner on my website or $ 10/month for a link on the Marketplace page. My website adverages well over 1,500 visitors per month and 95% of the traffic comes within the United States of America. For 2008, my website had over 24,000 visitors. Contact me thru my website for more information.

Good luck.

It really depends on your budget. You can use pay per click advertising in the search engines to reach audiences looking for your products. You can use Google Adwords http://www.google.com/adwords or Yahoo http://searchmarketing.yahoo.com

Here are some shoestring marketing ideas that can help you get the visitors you need at the least cost possible:

1. Create the best content you can with the best products you can possibly offer. Your content is your best advertisement – if visitors love your content, then they will go back and spread the word to others.

2. Make it easy for users to recommend your site. Viral marketing is very important — and easy to tap on the Web. But give your users the tools. Get a Recommend this Site script from websites such as cgiscripts.com and similar directories of scripts. Some even go as far as giving incentives to those who recommend the site to their friends. If only 10 people go to your site, but these 10 people invite 10 more – that’s additional traffic that you get for FREE!

Recommend Site Scripts (various) http://php.resourceindex.com/Complete_Scripts/Website_Promotion/Recommend_Site/
Big Nose Bird Recommend this Site http://bignosebird.com/carchive/birdcast.shtml
CGI Resource Index http://cgi.resourceindex.com/Programs_and_Scripts/Perl/Website_Promotion/Recommend_Site/
Hostscripts http://www.hotscripts.com/PHP/Scripts_and_Programs/Site_Recommendation/index.html

3. Rank well in the search engines (organic search results, not the pay per click). SEs can be a big source of traffic. The key is to create the best content in your niche. If you have good content, other websites will gladly link to you and offer your site as a resource to their audience. Check the on-page factors and be sure to get linked from authority sites in your topic area.

If you are going to read only one piece on search engine optimization, I suggest you read Brett Tabke of WebmasterWorld.com’s “Successful Site in 12 Months with Google Alone: 26 steps to 15k a day.” http://www.webmasterworld.com/forum3/2010.htm

4. Send out press releases. While outfits charge as much as $ 650 per release, there are free press release submission places on the Web. Press releases allow you to (a) attract media attention; (b) get more back links to your website without sending each website an email request; and (c) get more visibility especially if your press release gets in Google News or Yahoo News.

5. Submit articles. Write articles and submit them to websites accepting author submissions. You get exposure for your business; establishes you as an authority in your field, and allows you to get backlinks for your website. If 50 websites publish your article and it contains a link back to your website, then you easily get 50 links from a single article. The more links you have, the greater your chances for increasing your search engine rankings.

Here is a comprehensive list of where to submit your articles http://answers.yahoo.com/question/;_ylt=AhzreGmnCUicOoyedqypscUjzKIX?qid=1006022407481

6. Post a link to your site for free where it is allowed (always read the Terms of Use). Examples are:

Craigslist http://www.craigslist.com
Google Base http://base.google.com
Classifieds for Free http://www.classifiedsforfree.com/…
Text Link Exchange http://www.txtswap.com/
Recycler.com http://www.recycler.com/
Yahoo Classifieds http://classifieds.yahoo.com/
US Free Ads http://www.usfreeads.com/

Take care there are a lot of scam offers that turn out to just provide you a list of one time on car advertisers for your $ 39 fee. Don’t pay anything to get into one of these ad programs, because it is virtually ‘free’ money, there is a much higher demand than available advertisements needing cars.

Count yourself lucky if you can find an advertising company in your community looking to do such advertising, ask anyone you see with these ads how they got them, leave your phone number with a polite note on a parked car like this when you see them, there’s a much better chance of you getting the real truth this way.

From a mobile advertising interview: “Our typical campaign lasts three to six months”

These might not be the worst ones.

You have a better chance of picking up a bit of extra money doing freelance work on the internet, check out the job lists on the no cost to register marketplaces like odesk.com, freelancer.com, elance.com, though it’s mostly tech work there are simple article writing for web site chores as well.

There are also micro task sites that pay small change for a few minutes work, popular with 3rd world countries, some in the U.S. do them instead of crossword puzzles, the original was created by Amazon, the online store to ‘automate’ tasks a computer couldn’t do, like pick the better of 2 pictures they named mturk.com after the 18th century Mechanical Turk chess playing machine that had a man hidden inside. ShortTask and microworkers have similar micro tasks, some individual jobs are a bit shady, like signing up for product trials, doing surveys, clicking ads you shouldn’t, but you get to choose which tasks to perform
