How would you advertise with zero funds?🤔🤔

Every business relies on advertising to grow a customer base.

Knowing how to advertise well is a key skill for running a business. Quite a few people underestimate the importance of advertising and how adaptive you have to be. 🔥🔥


Having said that, the advertisement also comes with a certain cost!

But what if someone at initial stages wants to do it with no funds!🧐

What methods would you use to advertise with no money?

Let your Creative minds get rolling!!😎😎

Piyush Soni

Thats a great idea! What do you think about social media?

Sayon Mondal

i am not an expert about social media marketing ,but as per my little knowledge its difficult to tap the target audience using social media for free. But would love to be proved wrong.

Rajesh Garg

Facebook groups, blog commenting, guest posting, Craigslist, forum signature, ask people on YouTube/Instagram/Twitter to review in exchange for free product, find sub Reddit’s that would allow a advertising post,!

Piyush Soni

Thats a nice approach. I also believe that social media is the right way to approach for the same!!

Shikar Sharma

Instagram is a great free way to start getting some attention and traction.

Do collabs, page shoutouts, work with influencers etc

Piyush Soni

But isn't working with Influencers a paid deal?

Provide something of your product for Free to a certain number of users in the starting, promote (social share) this deal and you would certainly grab the attention of your userbase.

Piyush Soni

Basically advertising using our family and friends base! Right!

Husen Memon 

Not exactly. Let's say you are starting an online business of Content Writing. You offer content writing for free to the first 100 people as a Launch offer. Promote this offer through word of mouth or social media and you will grab good attention (obviously if done smartly).

Piyush Soni

Ok I get it, So basically first make it incentive based, then start it with funds!

Yo

Agni Chatterjee

Have to become content heavy and SEO

Piyush Soni

Absolutely agree with you. Content Marketing do works!

Agni Chatterjee

well its a trade between time and money , if you have more money than time use adverts, if you uhave more time do content(Though doing conetnt is not that cheap but the investment is staggered)

Shriyash Patil 

Get the attention of press and newspapers

Piyush Soni

Yeah that would be a great idea! But that would not be easy! Your thing should be damn innovative!

Shriyash Patil 

it's actually easy. Because journalist are hungry for a story you need a journalist more than you need a story. Story can be created out of thin air.. in fact I do just that.. getting a journalist is the difficult part. That's where these politicians are good at.
