Hey, Guys

I was just wondering, what alternative advertising methods you guys have implemented?

I've been using facebook, twitter and squidoo and a few others to channel people back to my website http://www.sandiegopaintpros.com/.

What advertising business models have you guys found successful?

I'm sure you've heard of Groupon and Living Social. I've seen several other guys use them for a single room paint deal. Facebook would be perfect for connecting with wives and moms as they are big decision makers on paint.

I think it is great you guys are looking for alternative ways to generate publicity. Have you tried generating a business page in Facebook that people can "Like"?

I have two:

One that has a Pacific Island focus to promote the development of the trade in the Pacific Islands. And a Twitter that connects with this.

The other is a Facebook page that I only just created a couple of days ago that centers around the painting industry training.
