The simplest, most economical and most effective advertisement in the world has to be the “To-Let” sign that hangs from any house that is up for sale and rent. Maximum exposure to the “Target audience” with minimum fuss. Job done.
Taking inspiration from that, we can use this simple technique to other products / categories. Think about how much money you can save from giving ads in classified sections. Why cant cars show “For Sale” sign all the time when they are for sale? (Its a limited practice now). You can expect a dozen phone calls just when you are stuck in traffic jam, if your car sticker says “For sale”. Why cant you use a laptop sticker like that which says “For sale”? How about your mobile handset? How about the furnitures?
By doing this we are effectively removing our dependence from intermediaries like e-bay and doing the direct selling to the end customers.
