There are opportunities to place ads on sites that do not charge any fees for the placement. These would include sites like Craigslist, Backpage and email list Kijiji to name a few. Some sites also provide business owners with the opportunity to offer coupons to attract business. Sites such as Google Places, Kudzu and Manta fall into this category. Many sites provide the opportunity for paid advertising.
When considering paid advertisements, the business owner may also have to determine whether they will use a flat fee payment method or a bidding method. The bidding methods usually involve a bid amount, a maximum daily spend and a total budget. So, back to the question posed in the heading of the article - should online texting be in your marketing arsenal.
Of the technologies and methodologies described above, online texting is by far the simplest to implement and at the same can provide a very cost effective marketing solution. Cell phone usage has exploded across the world. There are four members in my family and guess how many cell phones we have - you got it, four. In addition, I can't remember the last time I saw my seventeen year old daughter talk on her phone but she is constantly texting.
