Adopting the right initiatives in term of traditional marketing can help you go a long way, and promotional materials are the resources that should be used here. Think about the areas in your region with the highest daily traffic, it can be the city centre or a congested street, and place promotional materials somewhere visible. Form banners and posters to UK Exhibition stands and billboards, use any element that you think would draw passer -by’s.
