You don’t need to spend heavy amount of cash or 5,6 hours of your precious time daily for this promotion, it can be done with small budget.
How to Attract Offline People to Visit Your Blog:
1. Business Cards
Business cards are most used and effective way to promote your business or blog anything, First of all hire a creative graphic designer, and pay him to design a business card with your blog logo, URL and concept on it. Once you are happy with your business card design, Next you should print those business cards. Start with less amount of cards first, like 1000 cards or 5,000 cards. There are so many online websites offering business card printing and delivery service for reasonable prices, you can make use of them if you don’t know any local merchant to print your cards.
When you received your business cards, start distributing them to your friends, relatives, customers, and neighbors.Whole process of business cards is just so easy, its doesn’t require heavy investment, so give it a try.
2. Create promotional desktop wallpapers
Its very easy and don’t need any investment if you are familiar with Adobe Photoshop software, All you have to do is downloading some copyright free attractive images from web, next mix them into a new desktop wallpaper using Photoshop and give your blog logo, name and URL in bottom of the wallpaper as credits.
Design 10 – 20+ different type of wallpapers for different desktop sizes like we mentioned above, and set them as desktop wallpapers in your friend’s and relative’s computers. If your wallpapers are attractive, definitely more people will use it. Upload them to Pinterest also for more expose. So this way you can promote your blog.
3. Print Custom T-shirts with your website logo
You need to spend small amount of money to produce T-Shirts, but definitely you will get long term promotion with custom T-Shirts. Try to Deal with any local cloth printing merchant, Otherwise buy custom T-Shirts online. Add your blogs Logo in front of T-Shirt, and URL in back side. If you are able to buy huge amount of t-shirt, you will get more discount also from the merchant and it will reduce production cost, So I suggest to buy t-shirts in bulk.
Not only T-Shirts, You can print your brand name on mugs, mouse pads, bags, gifts, covers and so many others if you have interest. Just search on Google for this, You will find tons of sites offering these kind of stuff for you.
Once you got printed t-shirts, give them to your friends, related and others. Recently one of my friend, sold his T-shits with brand name in a local clothes shop for very cheap price, That shop owner will sell those T-shirts to their customers for high price. So this way so many new people will wear your t-shirts.
You can buy custom T-Shirst online from : www.zazzle.com – www.cafepress.com – www.pringoo.com and many more…
4. Contact Your Local Cyber Cafes
Prepare a list of your local cyber cafes, and visit each one. Ask the management of that cybercafe to make your blog as homepage of all computers in their cafe, If they said OK? you are lucky, Otherwise give some of your business cards to them and request them to distribute it to every visitor of their cafe.
5. Arrange Small Seminars
This is my favorite one, Try to Arrange seminars related to your blog’s topic in your local collages or conference halls with proper permission. Prepare a speech for your seminar and discuss something about your blog also in your event. Don’t forget to put some banners showing your blog is sponsor of this seminar in entrance path of your seminar / event location.
6. Post advertisement in your local edition of newspaper
News papers are another great way to reach offline people, If you are serious about your blog’s offline promotion? you can go with this strategy. Select any famous local news paper, and pay them to print your advertisement (any size as you want) on local zone of that newspaper.
Recently I did this, I placed an text advertisement on our local newspaper about my web designing service, It costs me just 10$. If you want to show banners, it will cost you more. I hope you already know that, Price is depends on your area and newspaper.
7. Mouth publicity
Its also called as free publicity, To start this, explain the use of your blog very deep and clearly to your friends and relatives when you are free. Definitely they will visit you blog as per your request, and If they liked it they will refer your website to others also. There are some chances to go viral offline with this. Actually its all depends on use of your blog, If there is no use with your blog? you can’t get promoted well with mouth publicity.
8. Print your blog url on your vehicles ( Very effective way)
Get a Vehicle Wrap for your car, Actually so many people don’t do this, because they don’t want to spoil their car look. Alternatively you can add your blog url on back glass of your car. You should do the same for your bike also, Attach sticker with your blog address on back side of your bike.
This is most effective way I have ever seen, because every time where ever you go, most of people around your vehicle will notice the blog URL. More people, More expose, so more result.
9. Sticker Promotion
Buy custom stickers in bulk as same we did with T-Shirts, Post your stickers in super markets, hotels, restaurants, bus stands, railway stations and rush areas.
May be in some private places, their management won’t make you post stickers, so take permission before you post in private areas. Flyers also works great instead of stickers.
10. Place a sign in your colony
I hope you don’t need any explanation for this, its very easy. Write your blog address on walls of your colony, sounds silly? yeah but it works good.
