Has your business been hit hard by the Recession? Do you want to bring your service back into the public eye through advertising but find that your marketing budget doesn't stretch to traditional media advertisements? Perhaps you're out of work and want potential employers or customers to see what you can do. Here at Fetch.ie we can help!
For 5 cent a day you could be advertising your business or service online with us here on fetch.ie. You will also have the ability to monitor your ad's performance. In other words, we'll tell you exactly how many times your ad has been viewed. You will also be able to illustrate what you have to offer with photos or a video.
Let's compare the cost of advertising a business online with fetch.ie (3 euro for 2 months) to some other forms of advertising
Depending on the size of the advertisement and the publication chosen you could be spending anything from €10 per day for classified advertising to thousands for a full page display ad. We checked a well known national evening paper for 3 lines of text for 3 days and it came in at a whopping €39, yes thats €39 for 3 days with absolutely no photographs.
A short advertising campaign on regional radio will also set you back a small fortune. Again we called a well known regional radio station and requested a 25 advert package of 30 second ads which would give us 5 ads a day for 5 days. The price came in at €500 plus vat plus production costs.
While price will depend on the size of the leaflet or flyer you choose and the quantity, we priced around for 10,000 A5 flyers with full colour on both sides and artwork included and prices came in at around 700 euro plus VAT. And thats not all, you then have to deliver the leaflets and if you use the service of An Post for delivery your looking at somewhere between €69 and €163 per thousand leaflets depending on the area.
And after all that spending, you could be even more broke than you were before..
Advertising online with fetch.ie where you could potentially reach an audience of thousands everyday seems like a much easier and effective option.
And if you need any assistance creating your ad we will be only too glad to help.
The Fetch Beetle took to the road to spread the good news about online advertising on St. Patrick's Day, and featured in two of the North-East's biggest parades.
It couldn't have happened without the help of Made in Hollywood, an award winning company that creates unique 3D items from Polystyrene, who made a double-sided sign in the form of a shopping trolley for us. Facebook fans of Fetch will have seen the finished product in our St. Patrick's Day album and in the days leading up to the parade we also charted Made in Hollywood's progress as the sign was put together.
We would like to say thanks to Fran from Made in Hollywood for all the hard work he put in.
With the sign fitted to the top of the beetle it was time to set off down the M1 (tweeting all the way), destination Drogheda! The Fetch Beetle garnered plenty of attention on its travels as well as from the big crowds in Drogheda. But that wasn't all. Our next stop was Carrickmacross, Co. Monaghan where we made it in time to participate in the 3pm parade there too.
We hope it was the first of many St. Patrick's days for Fetch.ie. and we would also like to thank everyone for the messages of support on the day.
