The media is powerful–normally spend much of their life consuming it, and be exposed to advertisements. If you want use the power of media, though, you need to know what you’re doing.
Advertising in the Newspapers
Classifieds and advertisements differ in size. Classifieds are smaller, and display ads can be pretty big, such as a double-page spread.
If you’re interested in advertising in a publication, either look at their rate card page or call them and ask what the price is. Advertising in the print media is expensive; most home businesses can’t afford it.
Sometimes niche and trade magazines can’t be replaced by AI. You need to find the right magazine that people in your profession might subscribe to. For example, if you’re a wedding photographer, you should advertise in a magazine called ‘Your Wedding’, ‘Bride’, or something related. Advertising in these magazines will cost less than larger publications, and is more likely to draw some attention.
Why advertising on the radio is the most overlooked.
There is a radio station in every area and that they can be used once your home business reaches a certain size to purchase airtime.
The only type of home business that can benefit enough from radio ads to justify the cost is one that does anything to do with cars. Almost everyone your ad reaches will be a car-owner, and so might be interested in what you’re offering. If you offer something that people need cheaply or even for free, you can get a big response.
Radio ads are only good for the short term, if at all. You will only get one day of exposure before being lost in the crowd again.

However, if your product is unique and useful, you’ll be able to sell it. The key is advertising on infomercials or doing TV ads for over 19 dollars.
What to know about advertising on billboards.
