Exclusive - Get 25% Off Marketing Materials At Vista.com

I just wanted to share a few free or low cost ideas on ways to market your online ventures offline. Many bloggers overlook the benefits of promoting offline as well. If you can implement some offline marketing strategies with little or no money that is even better. If you are trying to make money online you certainly don't want to be spending large sums of money offline it just isn't practical for the return you get.

Free Offline Marketing Method #1

Do a Google search for customized ink pens, customized promotional items, or something along those lines. You will obviously get a ton of results. Just start clicking on some of the results focusing on sites that offer free samples, or that have a print catalog. In my experience you have the best luck with those. Remember you want free! Okay now that you have found a few go ahead and register with the site. You want them to send you their catalog in the mail. The reason why is that every month or so they also send free samples of featured items from pens to calendars. The cool thing about most of them is that the samples sent are imprinted with your business details. Voila free marketing materials. If you do this for several you can build up quite a nice collection of pens and such. Now granted I have actually ordered a few small lots of customized pens to market various businesses, but I receive anywhere from 5-10 customized promotional items a month. Passing these along to folks is a great way to garner new visitors to your site and to spark conversation about what you are doing.

Free Offline Marketing Method #2

You may have heard of Vista.com and their free business card offers, but did you know they also offer a wide array of printing services including, business cards, checks, rubber stamps, announcements, , and car magnets! You can customize all of their products to your liking! Getting some of their basic business cards made up for your blog is a great offline marketing tool. You can pass them out to friends and family or to people you meet. See the last one on the list? It is that time of year and if you or a child are graduating getting some free announcements is a great deal. If you are interested in the free stuff here are some things VistaPrint does offer for free.
