If you have your leaflet distribution under control – that is you know they are going out to the right houses and in the right volume then – and only then, is the time to work on the actual design in detail. Well, of course you have to have some leaflet to be handing out first but here we can just take a very obvious basic design. What is it? How do I get it? How much is it? What are the benefits? How easy etc. These things with perhaps a nice graphic and all very clear and easy to read are a great first step. I’d never recommend starting with a fancy or complicated leaflet design as it just introduces too many variables.
Systems. As you think about your strategy, you must have a system. You must be able to see who is on your list in a glance; have a contact manager, and be able to keep records. I personally use a system for 19.95 a month that enables me to build my list by giving away a free resource, has email features, comes with an autoresponder, has 8 splash pages, includes training on how to market as well as places to market, and much more.
I finally came to the conclusion that, if I wanted to get things in motion, I needed to start with small steps. Coffee in hand, I resolved myself to send out the first email newsletter, come hell or high water.
While submitting your post, Gather allows you to automatically share the article in your groups. This way your post will be featured on the home page of all the groups which will be viewed by thousands of members. This simple technique alone can send a lot of traffic to your blog.
Take article marketing for example. I pay a monthly fee for a leaflet distribution that will submit my article to hundreds of article directories at the click of a button. I could manually submit my articles to each and every directory that my cheap leaflet printing does, but it would literally take me days to submit that one article to the same amount of directories. That being said, the service provided is worth well more than the small fee I pay.
It is easier to communicate in person to the very people who you wish to talk to on issues that are important to you and receive good feedback from people whom have had similar experiences.
Search engines like Google and Yahoo can really be of some help in this case. They even rate the resume submission service according to their performance. So check out who has captured the number one position and submit your resume. You need to wait a bit for good results.
