Someone please answer. Is it a good idea to advertise a YouTube channel by handing out business cards? (money isn't an issue)?

For around 1000 cards, it would only cost $100 or even less depending on where i order them, or their quality. However, I think $100 is a small price to pay to potentially get many people on board. i'd just hand them out at malls and other busy places.

I'll probably try online ads as well, but in the summer, i'll have plenty of freetime anyway. It's no issue for me to go around the mall and just asking people if they'd check it out. It'd probably even be kind of fun. My friend will help. Cards just need to be high quality and give an idea of what'll be on the channel.

    Most people will take the cards in order to appear polite/non confrontational, and then throw them away as soon as you can't see them any more.

    There are also often city laws and ordinences in place to prevent this sort of thing so people don't just drop the cards all over and create litter. You could get in actual legal trouble for doing this if you're not careful.

    If money is no issue, you're better off creating a Facebook page that is for your Youtube account and paying for online ads.

    Now, you've asked this question a ton of times, and have gotten a bunch of similar answers. Please stop asking, it's a violation of the Answers terms of service

    That will get you escorted off the property by security. If you persist, you could be charged with any number of crimes such as loitering, trespassing, littering and maybe even harassment. Malls are private property and you must have permission to advertise there (which would include meeting the mall's criteria, signing a contract and paying rent).

    In addition, the mall may go after you for the cost to clean up all the business cards that people drop all over the property.
