Where to advertise a new business???

Anyone any suggestions as to where is best to advertise a new business? I've done the usual gumtree / vivastreet ads, but not sure where else will get the most hits...

any help is much appreciated...

depends what market you are trying to attract.....

Might depend what the business is. Let us know.

If you have a vehicle, look into getting your company logo/details printed onto it. Just remember not to get drawn into road rage though, doesn't reflect well on the business! :thumbsup:

Best of luck.

Thanks for the ideas (bar the phone box one, it aint that kinda service!)

I'm a newly registered Childminder, i've used Vistaprint as well for business cards/ car magnet too...

So you're providing childcare in an at home setting. You can use vistaprint as you have said to create business cards flyers etc and even a webpage.

Provide flyers to any parent who calls you, hand them out at the local school, see if your local tesco's/doctors surgery/mums and babies group has a notice board you could attach your information card to.

Make sure you encourage word of mouth advertising.

Wear a uniform with your information clearly displayed and advertised on the back as you walk to and from school.

Hang on, isn't Vistaprint the company that runs the recurring charge scam?
