|Badge art by Ada Z from Collagepodge.com|
For the A to Z Challenge I started a blog devoted to the event and gave the event a name that was easy to remember. In November I enlisted the creative skills of artist Ada Z to develop a logo that we could use as a badge to be used on the A to Z Blog and for participants to use on their own blogs to identify them as part of the A to Z community. This event has been being advertised on the A to Z Blog, the blogs of the Challenge co-hosts, and many of the blogs of participants. All advertising in our case has been free.
If you are an author or a creator of some unique product you will need to resort to various forms of advertising in order to get your name out in the public eye. This is likewise true if you are a business owner or even involved in an organization such as a church or social service provider.
Free advertising is nice but not always easy to get. In order to get your product before more people you will need to decide on an advertising budget. Start small and choose your advertising platforms wisely. Do as much research as you can before making a decision so you don't squander your budget in useless places.
