Brochures GONE WILD

Did you know that your business is often being seen FAR beyond your own state lines?  We are always searching for new opportunities to get our brochures seen.  Here are just a few examples of the miles they travel:
  • At Shows & Markets Nationwide:  In September, we attended the world-famous Brimfield Flea Market and spent 5 days handing out more than 3,000 brochures of all 26 states!  Many thanks to MA member, Brimfield Antique Shows for graciously hosting us!  Are you a show member who would like to promote fellow members at your show?  Let us know, we are pleased to send brochures!
  • State to state: Many of our members display their neighboring states in addition to their own.  Lucy Road Flea Market & Antique Store in Millington, TN offer their customers FIVE states!
  • Vacation Planners: We receive calls, emails, and online requests regularly from individuals and groups planning their next vacation and wish to use our brochures to guide them from state to state!
Money-Making Tips: Keep your brochures well-stocked and highly visible to customers.  Consider displaying neighboring states.  Remember,  the more we promote one another, the more exposure and revenue potential for all of us!
FREE Marketing Opportunity: Email a photo of your creative brochure display to Lori@AntiqueTrail.com  and be featured as a story highlight on our Instagram and Facebook pages to be seen by our 20,000 followers!

It was very nice speaking with you today.  I'm so excited Antique Trail is coming to NYS!  I travel a lot to find antiques, and this is my favorite map!  I always pick up a copy to make sure I'm aware of all the local shops.  It's so easy to follow and is a pleasure to use.  I'm excited to advertise and offer the Antique Trail (brochure and website) to all my customers.

PLEASE BE CAREFUL!

Sadly, it's no secret to any of us that there are a LOT of SCAMMERS OUT THERE! PLEASE, if you ever question if something is from us, PLEASE ASK US.  In the meantime, a couple of things we will NEVER send:
  1. We will never send you a letter stating that your domain registration is expiring soon.  If you have a domain registered with us and you receive a letter like that, toss it into your recycle bin!
  2. Another common email scam is to use a sender email very much like another company, to trick the receiver into thinking they know the sender.  Recently, a member received this SCAM email:
     
From: message@AntiqueTrail.com <message@AntiqueTrail.com
Subject: Quick question
 
Just read Natalie Shaffers review on your google page, sounds like you do amazing work.

I discovered a few hidden errors on your site that are preventing you from showing up on the local Google maps when someone searches near you.

I just made a visibility report for you that reveals what to fix, its completely complementary with no strings attached. 
 
 
WE ARE HERE FOR YOU!  If you have questions or concerns, reach out! 
Please join us in welcoming our newest state!  The first edition of  NewYorkAntiqueTrail.com will be out in February 2023!  
Stay Tuned NEXT MONTH for more MONEY MAKING TIPS and USEFUL INFORMATION!
