all know that businesses must advertise to attract
customers and make sales. It's a basic trade
principle that has been in existence for centuries.
The problem with a great many advertising
opportunities though is that they require money up
front from the advertiser. When there's no guarantee
that the advertising media chosen will produce the
desired results, it really is more a leap of faith
than anything else!
Of course, there are alternative 'free advertising'
avenues that can be pursued. But again, these may
not produce results, either because they are
ineffective (hence they are free) or because they
are saturated by ads from the other one million and
one businesses using the service. So, what is the
The Shared Advertising Concept
The solution, as it turns out, is really quite
simple! Find companies with whom you can 'exchange'
A prime example of this shared advertising concept
in action can be found on the Internet. Companies
that have a shared economic interest - i.e. their
products or services, although different, appeal to
the same target audience - arrange to place
advertising on each others web sites. By doing so,
both companies benefit from free advertising to a
highly targeted audience.
Finding companies who are interested in pursuing
this idea is pretty easy too. Joint venture search
companies specialize in bringing together businesses
that want to work together like this.
To kick-start the process all you need do is
register your interest with a joint venture
facilitator, such as www.jvbase.com
and let them match your company up with other
parties who are interested in exchanging advertising
space for free. It's a solution that works and one
that is guaranteed to boost your sales inquiries
