Scratchin’ your head and wondering where to run lawn care ads? Sure, there are tons of places online and not on the ‘Net to advertise lawn care and related services. There is so much that you COULD do, that you might spend all your time looking them up and weighing them out, and not actually advertising. That’s like, Failure To Launch.
Top 8 Digital Places to Run Lawn Care Ads
You can run lawn care ads online in several places for free.
- Service Review Boards
- Classified Sites
- Social Networks
- Video Repositories
- Slideshow Repositories
- Image Repositories
Some may allow blatant advertising, and some may require you to be a bit sneaky to promote your business on their sites. Some of the aforementioned advertising venues have some crossover features, where they’re not actually one thing, but many. For examples, one image repository is a well known social network; one video repository is also considered a social network. How can an image on a place like Flickr be considered an ad? Well, the image doesn’t have to be a photo. It can be a photo with a meme, or a photo with your info typed over it. You’d need a photo editing software to do that, but once it’s on there, it could be seen and even shared around the ‘Net. I think it is very obvious how a video can be made as a piece of advertising. There are many video sites on which to spread the word.
Why the need to be sneaky in some cases? Forums really frown on anyone coming along and not contributing to the community as a useful member, while just shouting (spamming) about their business.
Local listings as Lawn Care Ads
What I like about directories mostly, is that they are local oriented. Local businesses like lawn care services should take advantage of GoogleMyBusiness and directory listings where geography is emphasized. Why? Because when a person or company representative searches for a service, the search engines know that is a local search. Let’s understand as well as the search engines do, that nobody would need to see search engine listings for Alaskan business when they are conducting their search from Alabama. In a lot of searches, local listings are paramount importance.
What if you could narrow down searches beyond locale; let’s say, by niche? Well, if having advertisements locally oriented is good, then having them on sites that cater to your specific niche, and are local as well, would be even better right?
Hey, there’s this great new place to run lawn care ads. RIGHT HERE! Maperoo is a local business directory, but the businesses are mostly those that work everyday with outdoor power equipment. Ahem, that’s YOU! Local AND a specific niche. VOILA! Or as a famous rapper once said, “Poop! There it is.”
There’s a lot that you can do on these sites for free, and there’s some that you can do at your expense. If you’re willing or able to pay for lawn care ads, there’s even more to do online, not to mention real world opportunities for advertisements.
Lawn care and advertising are two big businesses. Put ’em together and one can use the other to grow. Ad venues can really use a lot of lawn care people running ads, and the lawn services can really use the ad venues to drum up more business.
