    Sales have been non existant this year so I thought Id put an ad in a local mag,and its official,my ad is in there.
    the lay got back to me yesterday apologising as she made my ad smaller than I asked, but she isnt going to charge me which is nice,so I will have money for a bigger ad next time.
    She is sending me a copy of the mag before it goes out, cant wait!!

    The mag goes to 18,000+ house so itl be a way to see how many peeps I need to aim for to get a certain number of sales.

                      you need to work out if the ad is effective and getting customers to your site. Is it possible to add a where did you find out about us button to your check out page.
                      Then you can list the places you've been featured etc like this forum, the other forums you use etc. The client ticks a box and you can judge the effectiveness.

                          advertising

                          I used a local mag for my curtain making business (Lincolnshire), only put in 1 ad per issue & got enough business from each one to keep me busy until next issue. I was really pleased with the response & ended up having to turn down work!

                          One thing to remember though - here in the UK we see an ad from someone new & don't respond to it straightaway as we think it might be a fly by night firm, once its appeared on a regular basis we trust it to be a proper business & will then contact them & keep them in mind. Learnt this from a Business Link course I did & it proved to be correct. I know people who placed one ad, didn't get a response & never placed another hence no business. You just have to give it a decent trial - say 3 or 4 issues at least, if you then don't get a response the mag isn't the right one for you or your ad needs adjusting.

                          Hope you have as much success with the ad as I did with my mine

                          Good luck

                            Thanks Sharon.

                            The deadline for me re advertising is tomorrow, I was wondering about advertising in the next 2 issues and youve just made me realise I should do it.

                              I've heard similar advice through my local business network, that people seldom buy from someone the first time they come across them

                              Best of luck with the advert Seahorse, success doesnt come to she who waits, you go get em!
