Any Business Owners Here?

Hey guys recently I decided to start my own small business, its a iPhone repair company http://www.i-rite.com. I was wondering what the most successful form of advertising y'all have experience with for the money? Google Adwords, TV, Print, Radio?

Word of mouth has been one of our best advertisers. It sucks to do it, but just getting your target market and calling is something else we've done. With your business, you should look for companies that issue iphones and work some kind of deal out with them. That will get you lots of word of mouth advertising. If you want internet business, go be a vendor on some big forums for iphones. When people search for solutions to their problem, it would be good to have your name come up on a big forum as a suggestion of where to go. They are going to skip all those advertisements, and look for somewhere that comes somewhat recommended.

Is it a local business or do you want it to be nationwide ? For a local Iphone repair company, i would suggest Craigslist

I moonlight as a male prostitute. Putting flyers on the cars at the mall usually works well.

This/\.

Maybe radio? Something that might work is a radio remote. Local station comes out to your business with raffles, free hot dogs whatever.

I have seen people in stupid costume spinning signs on the side of the road draw people in.

Flyers under windshield wipers.

Cold call local business to introduce yourself and ask them for business.

Tell everybody you meet what you do, ask for business, ask for referrals. Everywhere you go everything you do can be an opportunity to advertise.
