Hi Frank. Thanks for connecting. I advertise in various ways for my CE classes. I do postcards, advertise in Massage magazine and Massage Today, utilize my website and post on different calendars, as well as send out newsletters. I believe that variety is the best way of advertising. I wish you luck with your classes! Take care!
