Starting a coffee shop?: Free Cafe Setup cost Calculator

You must be thinking who doesn’t know that? There are so many methods, especially in Singapore.

Launch some promotions? Sure, you can put up a few print advertisements on Straits Times, or you can opt for the lower cost “Today” newspaper by Mediacorp.

What about Television Advertising?  A Television advertisement is pretty affordable now. Mediacorp has a promotion that charges about $3000+ for X number of airtime on national TV.

Or you can go for the cheaper option of distributing your flyers on the road - many people are doing that.

By the way, do you know that SingPost can actually distribute flyers for you? When people lock up their mail boxes so that no one can send junk mail to them, SingPost can deliver your flyer right to your target audience for a fee. Isn’t that great? (The only downside is that 6,584 other companies are probably doing the same thing as you.)

All of the above traditional methods are probably what comes to your mind when you are thinking of ways to bring in additional traffic (i.e.people who are not shopping or living in your vicinity) to your coffee shop.

Only thing is -it is not very effective.

Sure, having an exposure on Today's newspaper can reach about 700,000 people for a single day, but how many people actually pay attention to your ad is the point to consider.

About the flyers distribution -you saw how many of them were being thrashed, right? And look at the dust bin beside your mail box to see how much junk mail are being dumped daily.

The reality is, you think you know how to drive traffic to your coffee shop, but it might not be all that useful.

Did this question make you stop and think?  That is good  - at least you are aware. Here are some other questions  of similar importance on how to drive traffic to your coffee shop that you can read about too.
