    I am trying to think of a good advertising technique to get my business noticed locally. I thought about door hangers but I heard the return rate isn't that great.

    My business idea is grocery delivery/pick up.

    Any interesting and/or different ideas?

    Advertising through the internet would be the best option for your business. It is very cost efficient and you don't have to spend so much of your time distributing leaflets and all. You just need to have a simple web page to promote and learn some SEO techniques used by several internet marketing expert. You can also used the help of social website like facebook and twitter if you want to. :)

    Have a blog or forum on your site for discussion. Use social media (twitter/facebook) to promote your product or brand. Respond to everyone in a timely fashion and go from there. Don't be afraid to ask all of your friends/family to share your site/product using social media. Word of mouth is powerful (and cheap).

    I suggest billboards, mobile ads, posters and radio ads for local campaigns. Ask the help of friends and neighbors as well to get the word out.

    If you're business is concentrated to a small area, I would see about posting a flyer on the local supermarket community boards in their store (most have them).

    Another option you might consider is talking to the local pizza places about attaching your flyer to their pizza boxes. Most will do this for additional revenue, and even some of the local, larger franchises (Dominos, Papa Johns, etc.) will do this as well.

    Another option is doing an insert in any local hometown papers you may have. You can generally do this fairly cheap as long as the flyers are pre-printed.

    And, as the elderly would probably be your highest percentage of clientele, I would consider posting flyers in any local senior centers, bingo halls, etc.

    If you're a start up business and do not have much funds yer, much better if you focus on free advertising first. Internet is the very basic of free advertising, listing your local grocery store really is a great help especially for those people looking for the nearest store/grocery where they can buy their needs. Post on free classified ads on the virtual world. After some time, why not try to offer discounts for repeat customers so they still keep coming back.

    If you can put a ads, I am sure other people can put the ads too, how long it can last? Advertising must be creative, the more creative you are, the lesser money you spend. Why not try some blue ocean strategic or purple cow strategic?

    This is creative example, you may get free advertise in a media.

    First, make sure you've optimizted for local SEO listings.

    Next, order yourself some professional business cards (see my sig) ;)

    Lastly, try local ads in your paper or community-based periodicals. Communities generally like to support local commerce, and you may also want to look into joining local business groups!

    There are many ways to advertise, but the most important means of communication at this time and in the future are Facebook and Twitter. The internet is moving so rapidly and the mass market all have a computer and internet access. However, people still buy newspapers and magazines, so feel free to advertise in them and why not advertise in directory listings online and offline as well. You would be surprised to see how much traffic you will generate which means income which means success!

    Millions of people across the globe use cellphones and are well acquainted with a text messaging service. Many companies are taking advantage of this and are designing advertising strategies based on text messaging service.

    Another cheaper but reliable method of advertising is custom stickers printing. Its one of the most popular marketing tool which every business owner demands. It can be created easily. placed everywhere and noticed by everyone. Comparatively sticker printing is lo cost advertising method than radio, TV, newspaper and any other source and becoming more popular. There are many types of stickers available used for many purposes like business promotion, education, political campaign, hospitals, bus stops and everywhere.
