How to promote and advertise your product or service
The best way to promote your product or service is to create something really spectacular and useful. That way, you will get the very best and cheapest advertising, that is, word of mouth. People have always been happy to recommend good things to their friends. Stop and think, how did you discover "Facebook"? And, if you're a sports fan, you're probably promoting your team right now.
If your product or service isn't so spectacular as to create its' own "buzz", there are a number of things that you can do. And you have to realize that people are going to do their very best to try to ignore your message. Whatever you do, realize that it will be a battle between you, the advertiser, and your potential customer, who just wants to get on with their life without being interrupted.
If you are willing to be an annoyance to people to try to get them to hear your message, begin by reading "Green Eggs and Ham", and follow that example.
Create a simple message and repeat it. Everywhere you can. In a house, near a mouse. Repeat.
