Are you placing your ad on the web and not getting any response?
There are three basic things that you must do in order to succeed when placing your ads online:
1. Be Consistent.
A one shot ad will simply not work. This is true even when placing ads off-line. If you do not plan on running your ad a minimum of 6 to 12 times, then you should expect that your efforts will fail.
The more exposure you give your ad, the greater the chance that it will accomplish what you are trying to do, which is to get a positive response. Place your ads consistently.
2. Target Your Ad.
Aim your ad at the type of customer you need to attract for your particular market. It is a waste of time and effort to run an ad that gets the attention of someone only to discover that what you have would not be appropriate for that individual.
Determine what type of person would most likely be interested in your product or service and find those places online where that type of individual would be found.
An excellent source for prospects can be tapped by placing your ads in one of the many online newsletter or e-zine publications that already cater to that particular target market.
You can find online publications that cover just about any subject imaginable by doing a little research at one of the many newsletter/e-zine directories that list them for you.
