Hey my success story,
I set up a tablet sales site selling china version android tablets, like you said adwords cost me way to much, I managed to make some sales through free ad listing sites such as usfreeads,
but then i spoke to someone who also sells online and mentioned they have used leaflet distribution for there sales, so i looked into it myself and released how efficient it can be, its fairly cheap and works i have tested this,
I run adwords for 6 months and spent just under £20K!
I purchased 120,000 Leaflet distribution for £4200 over a 6 month period,
The results we're very surprising, My Google campaign brought in £27,500 oh which £7,500 Was profit,
The leaflets that were distributed worked so well! I made over £32,000 <-- That is MORE Then google's profit and even better it cost me less to get!
I used <snip> The staff are very nice and helped me design a really cool leaflet with some social icons on for maximum effect!
