Taking Social Networking Offline

February 9, 2009

Westergaard Advertising is proud to be a sponsor of the Iowa City Twestival (Twitter + festival). This is a local “tweet-up” that is part of a global initiative harnessing the power of the Twitter community to raise money for Charity:Water — an organization working to bring clean drinking water to the 1.1 billion people without it. The Iowa City Twestival will be held in the North Room of the Iowa Memorial Union at 7 PM this Thursday, February 12th. More event details can be found here.

In addition to seeing what happens when you take social networking offline, you can purchase raffle tickets with a chance to win several cool prizes including a chance at a custom “Follow Me on Twitter” T-shirt from WA. However, we must give the appropriate props for this idea and the template to self-described creative superfreak Ted Murphy.

Hope to see you at the Twestival! I’ll be wearing my shirt.

The content you have provided is pretty interesting and useful and I will surely take note of the point you have made in the blog.

I was surfing the Internet a few days back to find out what would be the best strategy to get mass exposure and traffic to my website. I found that newspaper and magazine advertising can be very helpful. If you are looking to boost your website traffic at affordable rates and get an audience of millions to view your website, then try advertising in broadsheet newspapers that offer national exposure.

I did this with web windows which is a UK based company and found amazing results with my newspaper ads. It’s also got the added advantage of reaching out to those potential customers who do not use the Internet.

I thought this information might be useful for anyone looking for solutions to get more traffic to their website at affordable rates.
