  1. Use Flyers- One of the traditional form of offline advertising is making use of flyers to promote your company and its goods and services. When it comes to flyers, you have two options: You can employ a printing company to print the flyers for you or you can create the flyers at home. There are many software applications (like Microsoft Publisher and Microsoft Word) that you can use to create the flyers for your company at home. When you are making the flyers, it is important for you to determine whether you want the flyers to be in black-and-white or you prefer color printing.
  1. Distribute business Cards- You should get your business cards as soon as you have set up your business. Not only are these cards cheap, you can easily distribute your business cards to people whom you think might be interested in your products or services. Believe it or not, but your business card is one of the most effective advertising tools that you can ever use. Needless to say, the design of your business card is of utmost importance. Make sure that the card does not have a complex design and it should have a maximum of two fonts. Nothing more, nothing less. The logo of your company should be placed properly in your business card because it is the main element on the card. The best thing about business cards is that you can distribute them to people that you meet anywhere. 
  1. Undertake vehicle advertising- This form of advertising is also very popular among the business firms. The best thing about this kind of advertising is that people in the streets will be able to look at your ads when they are passing by or when they are stuck in a traffic jam. You can paint the vehicles with your company’s ads and then add your company’s phone number to the ads. Always remember that the advertising slogan should be short and brief so that people on the streets can read it quickly.

By using the above mentioned tips, you can successfully advertise your products and services. They are effective and you will get the kind of response that you are expecting.
