    Well I think it is important not to restrict oneself, to a particular time of medium and just try and use as many mediums as possible. With you tube one has to come up with something that has a potential to go viral, and more importantly that viral has to reach your target clients in your area, not an easy task. I think the irony of it is that while technology gives us a chance to expand our market, with websites, tube, twitter, facebook, more and more people are coming to appreciate the old face to face comunication. So I think face to face, door to door, and then use technolgy to work as a silent partner to expand your market.

    Very well said and I agree completely, I am quite fascinated with the whole viral thing, but I think if you are not a huge well known corporation it would be a bit tricky to get your video bringing in the business (but still fascinating nonetheless)

    The only thing about the face to face, door to door part, its all about getting that opportunity which we did cover on earlier but all in all this was a very helpful thread - thanks to everyone.

    For me - Word of mouth and references seems to work better. Never tried some offline marketing

    Thanks Wiz, and I completely agree with that but you always have to start somewhere before word of mouth and references can start working for you.

    Yes but has that not been around for a while already?

    Who are they trusted by now though?
