Advertise Your Site the Old Fashioned Way

Signs are cheap these days. You can have a number assigned to for very little money these days.  All you need is a hammer females and you can tackle up on telephone posts all around your county or state.

Now I know it's probably against the local zoning rules to do that.  But as you drive around your city or county you will see just how well that is enforced.  Typically it's not enforced at all, and the enforcement does occur usually comes in the form of a paid public servant that goes round and picks them up and drives them to the dump.

But you can still get several weeks of advertising out of those signs.  And if you take a step ladder you might even get a few extra weeks.  I wouldn't advise it must you have a very memorable URL.  If you've got that you can definitely get the word out faster, it'll help if your URL also conveys a message. Drive around for a few hours and pay attention to the signs and you'll rapidly get an idea of what works and what does not work.

If the signs don't get carted away, go out and pick them up and move them around him and other locations.  You can experiment and pay attention to your results and start to get a feel for what works and what doesn't work.  Some signs will work and some won't.  Some locations will work terrific and some will be terrible.

If you've got a site that is conducive to commuters, company gives traffic information lets say, make sure your site works well on a mobile phone and you might even pick up some traffic while they're stuck in a traffic jam.
