I'm often asked, "Where should I promote my business?" The real question being asked is, "What's the best media--Facebook, Google, email, billboards, networking, the newspaper..."
I usually answer by saying, "There is no 'best' media, it depends on who you want to reach." But that was a lie.
There is a BEST media and here it is...
IT'S THE MEDIA YOU OWN.
It's your (mostly) daily email...like this one. Your monthly printed and mailed newsletter. Your book. Your audio CD. Or, as I created for one client...your full color trade magazine, complete with advertisers, 3rd party articles and my client as editor-in-chief (and no, he's not in the magazine "business").
Sometimes your prospects know you own it, sometimes they don't. Either way, if done right, you get their attention.
You can get to hard to reach prospects when you own media. You fly right under the "advertising" alert system. It's like a stealth skin for your offer.
In April, I'm taking five more businesses through another Lead Generation Sprint™...and I'll be helping each one identify the best way to build their own media platform.
Your best shot at being one of the five that's chosen is to jump on the early notification list.
