Oh yes... my wife heavily advertises us on Facebook by having a page for our mobile espresso van. Also does the Twitter thing. Those 2 are great free tools to let our friends and fans know what we do day-to-day, specials/promotions we're having, where we will be, changes due to weather, events, etc... Later!
Thanks for your input Joseph, I will definately let everyone know how it works, if I decide to do it. I did use Craigslist for awhile, but took my ad off because of the amount of scams on Craiglist. It really is unbelieveable! Just be careful with Craigslist!!
I used my company info. No personal info. was given in the ad.
Someone actually sent me an e-mail (my company e-mail) trying to gain personal information, and signed their name with my company name and logo. Who knows how many people received this e-mail, thinking it was from my company. This was only one of the many scam isuues I've had with craigslist. It just wasn't worth it, so I took my ad down. (I never got any legitimate leads from craigslist.)
FB and other social media sites are not really that effective however they are free. For every 100 people that visit or fan your page you will get 1-3 customers. Not really worth too much time or effort if you dont already use those applications.
When people ask about additional ways to advertise I always ask why are you looking do that? The answer should be simple like "im just starting out" or "there has been a decrease in business" or "I would like to grow and expand". Something like that, with the root answer it would be much easier to find out what kind of advertising would benefit your business the most.
