In all your advertising you want to include your web site address, e-mail or autoresponder addresses, and the e-mail address to subscribe to your e-zine.

Below are10 offline marketing ideas:

Lets Smile

Lets Smile

Smiling is infectious; you can catch it like the flu

When someone smiled at me today, I started smiling too

I passed around a corner and someone saw my grin

When he smiled I realised Iʼd passed it on to him

I though about that smile then realised itʼs worth

A single smile, just like mine could travel round the earth

So when you feel a smile begin donʼt leave it undetected

Letʼs start an epidemic quick and get the world infected!
