In these days of website banner ads, Google AdWords, Facebook Ads and other Internet-based marketing options, some less advanced marketing methods seem to have fallen by the wayside. Billboards, direct mail and informational pamphlets aren’t often thought of as useful contributions to a company’s marketing campaigns, but if used correctly each method can not only be a viable advertising avenue, but also contribute to the business’s online advertising actions. Direct mail, in particular, can add value not often considered by business owners.

Referral business can grow in two main ways:

Offline (word of mouth): The recommendation from one individual to another during a conversation. This is the classic way of marketing, and arguably the most effective, yet one of the most thoughtful to engineer. Word of mouth marketing can boost loyalties that cross and outlast generations. Recommendations support to disseminate product information more slowly, which is less manageable but can be far more influential within a group.
