Using Your Web Site as your On-line Business Card
It’s the 21 century and the world has just turned upside down.
People are using the web more and more to shop.
Many businesses have web sites that are, correctly, loaded with details and examples of what they do. I’m not interested in this. If you have a site like this. Keep it, you need it.
The foot in the door technique is a one page site that explains what you do and highlights how you can help solve a problem. Short and sweet, using a video or two, correct search terms to help rank, and much more.
Watch this video for more information. Then head over to https://footinthedooradvertising.com then more details on our dollar a day business card web site.
Here’s where new business’ go crazy! They think without a beautiful custom logo they will not get noticed. This is only partially true.
Your logo can be just text, a graphic or a combination of both. It needs to be visually appealing. What’s a good logo?
Here’s one test: When you are driving around look at the logos people are using on their car. I really like the business’ that put all their information on a 12 inch by 18 inch magnet and expect you to see it all as you whiz by at 30 miles/hour!
What a waste of money!
Compare this to the same size magnet with a vacuum cleaner, Large telephone number (or email/web address) and a short statement like: “need your house cleaned?” Business’ should invest between $65 & $150 for a logo that will make you stand out from your competition. Here’s some examples:
Another attention getting trick is using intro’s. Click here to see a video containing unique ways of showing off your logo, business, name, etc. The video is a collection of 7 to 12 second introductions designed to make you stand out in a crowd. See the video here.

Promotional Advertising Tools
Just becuase you advertise on line, don’t forget about off-line advertising! The more daily impressions you can have of your ad or logo will help you stay in your client’s mind. There are over 100,000 products that you can customize with your information. Over the years I’ve established relationships with the top vendors in the industry. What work best for you? Until we hear from you I’m not able to answer this. Visit our Product search engine at the home grown promos store.
Store Front (Brick & Mortar) Marketing
If you have a store front you cannot rely on the Internet or social media to do all your marketing and advertising. Reaching out to the community will increase sales.
Your ad does not need to be long winded. But It must include an eye catching graphic.
It must say is what you do, your hours, location and what need you can fulfill for the reader.
The ad has to be placed so that it reaches the correct audience. For example, if you sell RV parts you shouldn’t advertise in a magazine/paper that caters to renting an apartment.
There are basically two types of ads:
- Ads that cater to foot traffic and your local community and
- Industry ads that cater to a specific clientele or group.

Are You Ready?
To Sum up, I’ve been in business now over 25+ years and have survived! I would like to share my knowledge with you and help you grow your business with The Crystal Group as your partner.
P.S. In the first six months of 2019 I turned away working with four potential clients. Why?
- They did not realize that increasing their visibility takes time and sweat equity,
- That increasing exposure is an investment in their business and not a cost,
- That they are experts in what they do but not in marketing and advertising.
- They listen to “Dream Killers!” rather than experts – A Dream Killer is a family member, friend, committee, etc. who has no investment in the business and thinks they know everything! Dream Killers usually will lose nothing if business fails.
