Get the best. Always pay the least.

A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty. Winston Churchill

If you're here at this blog of mine because you were led to believe that I can show you ways to promote yourself or your business without having to pay big bucks to get it done, then you're in the right place.

As both an unemployed worker for several years and an advertiser seeking customers, I have the same gripes as everyone else. So, let's begin by blowing off steam so we can quickly get down to solving this problem.

Big business or small, everybody’s in the same boat when it comes to getting the word out about their new enterprise. It’s not enough to rely on the fact that you’ve asked a few insiders to spread the news around; that won’t sustain you while everyone is taking care of their own interests. Getting off to a good start doesn’t mean pacing nervously up and down waiting for some potential customer to make contact, it means showing yourself off.


The disappointment you face when you initially launch your site on the internet or open the doors to your physical store can be disheartening to say the least. During the first few days your site is published to the web and your doors are wide open, not only doesn’t any human being know you’re there, but the absence of recognition by the web itself can be a cause for concern. You’ll no doubt start calling your tech support team to find out why you’re unable to locate your site; maybe you don’t have the correct address, maybe something went wrong when it was published, maybe it got lost. Although lots of things can happen, most likely it’s none of those, so rest easy, it’s just part of the normal order of familiarization with the internet and getting the word out in general.

If you're among the reluctant few who still have no internet presence, you know you're losing business to competitors who do, and you are probably growing to realize that you can no longer survive without it.

When times are tough, learning about new ways to make a few extra bucks or how to expand your clientele is always welcome. For you folks out there who are painters, plumbers, electricians and handymen, or any other business person who requires the use of a van or truck, adding signage to your vehicle has far greater potential for opportunities than you imagined.

It’s been said that there’s no business like show business. If you’re among the many small to medium size business or service owners who agree, you might want to avoid the very expensive major broadcasting stations during prime time and concentrate your thoughts on the more reasonably priced local, regional, or national cable schedules. In this way you’ll have the opportunity to take full advantage of all the benefits associated with television without sacrificing any of the ‘show business’ appeal.


Getting the word out to potential customers can be done quickly with a well thought out email campaign, but doing it yourself is a big responsibility, since it’s important to follow all government guidelines governing this form of business solicitation.

You can do a really fine job of contacting people by email right from your current email provider, or you can utilize a service designed primarily for that purpose. Either way, it's a useful and rewarding method of contacting a wide variety of potential customers without spending a lot of money. Read on.


Bartering comes naturally; you give me some of those for some of these and we’ll be even. Although you can’t survive running your business totally on bartering, there are certain unique situations that prove ideal for swapping goods and services. No matter who you are or what business you’re in or planning to start, you wouldn’t be bartering unless you felt that you had something everyone wants.

Out-of-the-box thinking starts with a sense of humor, being able to see things that make you laugh inside; taking serious subjects and putting an outrageous spin on them.

To read the full article, just click on the article headline.

Planning a video is like writing a novel, you walk around, sit around, and no matter what else you do around, your thoughts are all about coming up with a creative concept. Then your mind drifts to more substantive things like "should it be funny, just informative, or so clever that it will go viral; where the heck do I begin?" Oh, and one other major consideration that will surely take up residence in the back of your mind: "How much will this thing cost me?"

I'm always amazed with the reactions I get when I suggest to a new client that they include advertising on Craigslist as part of their marketing effort. “I don't think that people on Craigslist are a good fit for my product” I've been told, or “It's just really not the kind of clientele I'm looking for.” So rather than going through the tedious exercise of trying to convince them that immediate sales should not be their primary focus at the start, I figure it's easier to open their eyes to one of the most important things they should be doing by pointing them to this article.

   How to advertise cheaply and still get more bang for your buck is the basic theme of this blog.

Its message is directed to entrepreneurs and existing owners of small to medium size businesses who find it "impossible" to attract customers using a meager budget.

It’s time to have some serious fun.  I say "serious", because what you do now will define the feeling your entire business projects to others. For want of a better word, it’s called your ‘identity’...your 'look'.  It’s your time to create a design that makes you feel good, one that you think will be stand-alone memorable.


If you want people to visit you in a new home, wouldn't you notify them that you've made a move and give them your new address? Why would it be any different with your online business? We would all be able to figure out what to do if we were in a brick and mortar location, but for some reason, when it involves the internet, common sense takes a backseat and people rely on some belief that there's a mechanism on the web that takes care of all that. I hate to break it to you, but you are that mechanism. So, because I've heard this story over and over again, I thought it time to create a concept everyone can follow and give them hope for a positive future on the web.


Attention: Especially if you've been on the internet or you've just put up your site, and you need help in getting it ranked, recognized,and busy doing business, you might want to read the two articles below in the order they're presented. It's definitely something you can do yourself (eventually), but if you have a couple of bucks you want to invest in me starting it off for you initially so you can plan on keeping it going for yourself, learn my charge for doing it all by clicking here.  

You're excited about running your new ad and you're equally certain this one's going to be a winner. Maybe some of your facts are a bit fudged, but you think, "Isn't that what creative advertising is all about?" Better rethink your attitude about advertising if you equate creative with deceptive, and save yourself a lot of wasted advertising dollars in the process.


The decision to build a site and launch it online is a big step. But the whole experience can be a pleasant one if you plan it out with someone who can guide you. I offer you free consultation every step of the way.

If you've been encountering "outa sight" or "too low to be true" pricing for a website, consider this win-win offer that I came up with after 10+ years of successful avdertising on the internet.

Sometimes affirmation for a job well done through positive testimonials make business owners feel good about all they do. In my case, any negative feedback I receive works in much the same way.

Nobody ever questions the terms of paymement to their cable company, HMO, or a lawyer asking for a retainer, but when it comes to certain services you may render, your customers think it's OK for you to do

the work first and get paid when it's all done to their satisfaction. That's not the way things work.  

Businesses sometimes slow down because clients and potential clients are caught up in everything surrounding a major holiday, or it's generally vacation time for most people, or where concentration for most is on family matters like getting kids back to school. But when you're in the service business like I am, you have to figure out ways to get people to think about you anew, and this is one of those ways.
