    Do you invest in offline advertisement to promote your website? I think offline ads are also able to bring potential visitors to websites. If you're in offline also, how you implement your ideas for the best outcome?

    Funny you'd ask this. I spent Mon and Tues passing out a bunch of paper cards with 10 new proxies on it at like 65 collages and high schools around SoCal. Well my niece passed them out for me. We spent two days riding around on my bike (lol) handing these out. So far its been pretty good. Yesterday adsense showed 143 hits with 11 clicks, Today 391 hits 19 clicks. Not bad for a fun day out of the house, I hope this keeps going...

    I've seen local bands use stickers that have the bands logo and the url.

    I've heard of people using business cards to promote their sites. Leaving the cards in books at the public library and in book stores.

    My niece attends USC, so she's been push a lot of my proxies there. Its amazing how big a crowd she can gather up. In two days time we (she) passed out 5k cards (actually paper slips) I think if we do it again, I'm just going to put one or two of my proxy list sites or something similar on it.

    What's your ROI on this?

    We'll its a net loss of roughly $20 so far, I spent $26 total, $11 at the copy shop (could have cut this to $1 if I'd just printed them at home) and $15 in fuel. All in all, it was couple fun days on the bike, but I don't think I'll recoup my cost.

    Though the time outside away for the net was money well spent

    Giving away stickers to motorists/cab drivers, buses, trains, etc. with your site on it is a great way to promote your site offline
