Have a very limited or no budget at all for advertising? That is no reason why you should not be able to advertise your t-shirt printing business.
Here are some "el cheapo" yet effective ways to advertise that you may want to consider.
From school programs to church bulletins, you will find that there are many small publications in every community. By placing low cost or no cost advertising in these papers you may be able to land sales.
FAIRS AND FESTIVALS
By setting up a small booth at a fair or festival, you"ll discover that this can be an inexpensive way to show off your products and meet new customers. You"ll also show support for your community at the same time.
Posting sales fliers at in your local supermarkets, schools and library bulletin boards can be a very inexpensive way to inform the public what you have to offer.
HAND-OUTS AND FLIERS
An unusual but effective way to distribute your fliers could be as follows: try to arrange a deal with a local pizza shop to attach your flier to their pizza box in exchange for some free t-shirts that you'll print for them. This can work wonders at getting your name out there.
Apartment villages and condo complexes can offer a unique opportunity to market on a limited budget. Many of these multi-residential developments have tables or ledges in their mail or community room. One of your sales flyer on a condo lobby bulletin board might be read by as many as 2000 people in just few days. Placing your ad or flyer there may generate many sales.
