Do you remember years ago when the yellow pages used to come to your town, call your business and ask you to place an advert? I am probably leaving some of our younger friends with a slight sense of confusion here, but the fact was that pre the mid 90′s the Yellow Pages was just about the only show in town when you were trying to advertise your business.
So where are they now??
Like many pre internet rocks of society, they are a fraction of what they used to be. There are numerous alternatives now and they cost very little, if anything at all.
On that basis.. If I were to tell you there is a business platform that serves some 238 Million people around the globe, that (if you know how) lets you connect with any single person in the whole network. I am betting you might want to take advantage of such a platform?
They say about themselves:
“The mission is to connect the world’s professionals to enable them to be more productive and successful. To achieve our mission, we make services available through our website, mobile applications, and developer platform, to help you, your connections, and millions of other professionals meet, exchange ideas, learn, make deals, find opportunities or employees, work, and make decisions in a network of trusted relationships and groups.”
If I also told you that unlike yellow pages, with a huge cost for their banner ad’s, that this platform will let you advertise yourself for nothing!
Would you be interested?
Finally, would you be surprised to find that most people when given the opportunity to place the banner ad, choose to take the equivalent of a line entry instead?
