You know what would be way more cheaper and you would get alot more exposure and product awareness, put an ad out in your local newspapers. The major newspaper here in San Diego the Union Tribune has a circulation of a Million plus every sunday. There are also college newspapers, pennysavers and those free weekly shoppers that you can pick up at 7 Eleven, Am Pm, liquer stores, albertsons almost everywhere and they distribute tens of thousands of those every week. The weekly shopper newspapers in San Diego only cost only $10 to submit a 25 word ad line. If you can write an effective ad then there you are, your website domain in print in a couple of thosand households ready to generate sales. Just think about it how many of you have newspapers just lying around that you picked days ago and read through them a couple of times before you get rid of them.

I think that might work well for a local business or if you feel your target customers are reading the pennysaver.

For some t-shirt brands and websites, an ad in the San Diego classifieds or pennysaver would be a waste of money.

I don't read any of those type papers (or the classifieds), but I'm sure there is a perfect demographic that does (like maybe t-shirts related a the local community)?
Well my target customers are everyone and i do think some of them read the pennsaver and newspapers. Ads in newpapers will work for local and nationwide businesses not every business in the newspaper is located in the state it is cirulated in. There are many businesses that advertise in newspapers that are located in different states. You can submit an ad anywhere. There are businesses out there that can put your ad in every newspaper in the united states if you wanted to. http://www.nationwideadvertising.com/

A waste of money is sending out 225 mailers and getting one buyer. How much did that cost anyway, $.45 a mailer= $101.25 to get one buyer.


Well Rodney you are the only person that i've ever met that doesn't read the classifieds, congratulations.

when you advertise in newspapers you are gauranteed to hit a couple of hundred demographics either locally or nationwide.

No results no exposure what is being in a couple of thousand or million newspapers, Out of all those people someone will see your ad wether it is a text ad or full color display ad.

Here is the type of exposure you can get from a little newspaper and it has epanded onto the internet. This is just one of the many articles that you can find online about marketing t-shirts in newspapers.

The owner of the t-shirt line has his own little niche so newspaper advertising could work if you are targeting one target market or everybody like me.

Here is some quick quotes from the article

"He and his partner in Nevada have taken 15 orders since the ads began running, and they have sold more than 100 shirts in two months."

"I couldn't have asked for better advertising. Everybody will know about us now, and I get my money back."

Yeah, right. look in any newspaper there are many ads with websites addresses everywhere and you will see many of the same ads running week after week even for a couple of months.

So what you are saying is that these people in newspapers advertising a product or service don't get any hits to their websites. Then why would they spend the money or even disclose their website addresses.

The bottom line is that you can have the best product in the world but if nobody knows it exist then it dosen't really matter.
