Classified Advertising as a Micro-Business

June 21, 2017

Classified advertising as a micro-business is one of the simplest income generators I have ever taken on as an endeavor. You pick a business – any business. Write a brief advertisement for the business. Then post the business advertisement with one of the major on-line classified advertising Websites. But, what do you do about the details?

There are always details! When setting up classified advertising as a micro-business, there are several things to consider:

  • Where do I find an on-line business to promote?
  • Should I use the Website link of the business I am advertising?
  • How do I determine a good title for my advertisement?
  • Where do I get a good description for the business I am advertising?
  • Should I use pictures or photographs in my advertisement?

These are all excellent questions! Let us take a look at each one.

The first question, “Where do I find an on-line business to promote?” is an important matter to consider. Of course you can also promote any off-line business; however, most on-line businesses have already done a great deal of the work for you. This means you can concentrate on promoting the business, and you will not have to spend your time developing the business and all of its marketing aspects.

You might want to consider choosing an affiliate directory. Consider Commission Junction, which can be found at : “http://www.cj.com”, and they are a great affiliate directory service. I have promotions going on with more than one hundred of their registered clients.

With an affiliate directory you can choose a business by category and even sub-category. This give you a great deal of latitude in being able to research profitability of an industry, and then accepting an affiliate contract with the ideal business endeavoring in the industry of your choice.

Once you and the business have set up a “relationship”, then you can acquire the actual Website link you will need to properly advertise your partner.

As for the second question, “Should I use the Website link of the business I am advertising?”, the answer is yes, but with consideration. The actual Website link you use in your advertising campaigns should always be encrypted. This prevents others from stealing your potential income, and it also give your prospective customers a more attractive link to utilize.

With the clients of Commission Junction you can always choose an encrypted Website link. It is a given option.

“How do I determine a good title for my advertisement?”

“Where do I get a good description for the business I am advertising?”

“Should I use pictures or photographs in my advertisement?”

These three questions can all be answered for you by the business you decide to promote. On the Commission Junction Website you will find links to the company of your choice. Within these links are ideal advertising titles and lengthy descriptions created by the company itself. You really do not have to do the work! However, you are also free to modify any of the content of these titles and descriptions for use in your classified ads.

The same is true for the use of photographs in your classified advertisements. When you go to the main Website link you are promoting, which you should always checkout for validity, you will often find numerous and finely detailed pictures for use in your classified advertisements.

So, now you have all of the aligned contents for your client’s classified advertisement. The final question is, “Where do I place my classified advertisement?”

I successfully and highly use the on-line classified advertisement business found in the attached “Link” box with this article. They are highly organized, easy to use, and provide an incredible number of options for successfully submitting your classified advertisements, and they do it by offering free accounts and very inexpensive monthly accounts.

Writing, or composing with given content, classified advertisements can be a very rewarding micro-business. Go choose your business. Let all of their hard work and monetary investment give you the information you need to succeed. Then go post your first classified advertisement. Your first sell for your client will be a very exciting and rewarding experience!

I am hoping by now that you see how to create classified advertising as a micro-business!

Advertising Business Consulting Marketing Point

June 21, 2017

Advertising business consulting marketing point options can be challenging. There are many options out there in which to market products, businesses, and marketing consulting firms.

When advertising the art of advertising itself, there is an important factor to be considered. You have many competitors. Marketing is a fierce industry. The biggest companies will pay massive amounts of money if you have a reputation that serves them.

You must be able to draw millions of people from around the world to internet sites. The colors used in advertising play an important psychological role, as they lure people to visit certain web sites and make certain decisions. The wording used is also very important. It should be expressive and create interest and excitement. But your audience is intelligent, so it must not be insulting.

There are ads that look exactly the same all over the internet. You can imagine what kind of reactions they get every time a person has been lured to look at them. It may start in the form of an email, and the interest of your potential customer peaks. So they open the email and find an ad that they have seen a thousand times that month alone. And there you have an instant delete key action.

They just do not want to see it again. They know that you are selling something they do not want. They know that you lie when you say it is free. They know that there will be an obligation when they get to the second to last step of your scam. They did it once. That is the only time they need to do it to learn what you are all about.

You must be different. You must be truthful. If it says the word Free, make sure something is free. There is apparently some control of this presently, as many ads now indicate that participation is required. At least the customer knows that they need to buy something before they start. However, they also do not like that. The statistics probably show that before this warning was given, many more potential customers fell into the trap of trying to get something for nothing. Now that they are given the information that they need to buy something before they get something else, they leave the site immediately.

Your business consultant will study your company. Every company has weak points and strong points. The marketing point that they will focus on will be on the strongest points, of course. But it will also create curiosity about the company, creating even more strength, and the weak points will be overcome. This can be accomplished through surveys and giveaways.

The surveys are anonymous, except for the phone number from which they are calling. The giveaways require registration and information. This information about potential customers is very valuable when a company wants to improve their advertising business consulting marketing point. Email addresses can be used to present offers later, and much more information can be gathered in a variety of different ways and strategies.
