Default 10 Most Unusual Ways To Promote Your Business

When companies form, they instantly think about how they can market their brand. You won’t be any different because you need to advertise to sell products and make money. That is how the industry works. Still, that doesn’t mean that you can deviate from the norm by choosing different marketing techniques. The ‘experts’ will try and tell you that there are only a few ways to ensure that you effectively market your brand, but they are wrong.

There are hundreds of ways to market your brand if you know where to look. In fact, there are several unusual ways to market your brand. And, these are the ones that you want to concentrate on if you want to make a splash. The great thing about the weird and wonderful world of marketing is that it is new and fresh. Unlike the tried and tested methods, consumers aren’t wise to them, which makes them more effective.

If you are a non-believer, here are ten methods you can try that will transform your marketing strategy.

We've already tried flyers on cars and T- shirts. I am thinking of doing the overhead projector since it is unique and it would really look great especially at night.

Default Facebook Page About the Problems Your Business Solves

One of the more innovative solutions I've seen that could work for most any business is to create a facebook page about the problems your business solves. So the page would be about the problems dog owners face but you'd sticky post a video of you walking happy dogs and having fun with them. You could even use videos featuring dogs to answer FAQs.

People search for solutions online and a facebook page that helps them can be engaging and can have good search engine 'juice'.

For example, if you run a dog walking business, you'd answer questions dog parents have about the how their dogs are treated when they're not looking, or about how to keep dogs from getting on furniture, into cabinets, trashcans, etc., while they're at work. You could also include links to affiliate products on your page -- like dog-proof trashcans.

You might call your page "How to Keep Dogs Off Furniture". That's a topic being searched right now on 3 major search engines.

You could then hire a fiverr to submit your facebook page url to search engines. A guy I used recently got his client's facebook page to page 1 on Google for his topic.

Feel free to tag me in your reply if you have questions.

Love #10 on your list "Publicity Stunts." (taken right from the guerilla marketing playbook)

I've been trying to get a couple of my clients on board with using "Promotional Events." (a little less gaudy than publicity stunts, but along the same lines)
