Lesson #12: Simply & Savvy
So you’ve taken the leap, started and launched a business and have spent your life savings or new home deposit fund to get things going. You find yourself out of money but you need the world to know about you but can no way compete with the big advertising spenders (and I’m talking about those on Social Media)
I found myself in a not too dissimilar position 9 months after launching.
How could I advertise My Icon Story without a decent marketing budget to play with?
My solution was simple and savvy.
I looked at my physical business assets – well I really only have one! My Macbook.
My Macbook is the heart of My Icon Story. I take it with me wherever I go whether to meetings, networking events, cafes and coffee shops whilst co-working and so on. It’s literally glued to me. With this in mind, I had a light bulb moment.
Why don’t I advertise my website on the object I carry with me everyday.
So whenever I am working behind the screen, my Macbook can silently speak to people all around me, introducing them to the very business I am busy working on.
Solution: Branded My Icon Story Laptop skin
I designed and ordered it through Sticker App and all for a mere £20!! Genius.
