3 Cost-Efficient Marketing Ideas for Small Business

If you have a small business, say a home-based business, and you want to make grow then proper marketing is the key. Don’t be intimidated with the term marketing because it does not only involve TV commercials and radio plugs.

You can promote your business using different marketing ideas for small business like joining holiday bazaars in your area or simply giving out flyers. Promoting your business involves money but it does not necessarily mean spending thousands of dollars for one or two advertisements. Here are some great yet cost-efficient marketing ideas for small business that you can use.

1. Create a company website

If you want to reach out to as many customers as you want then build a company website. It does not have to be fancy. A simple, detailed and professional-looking website is enough to present your business to a wider range of potential buyers or customers. There are lots of sites that offer free websites, you can sign up and make one for your company. Creating free websites, however, has some disadvantages because it imposes some restrictions.

Your website will show other links or banners which will divert the attention of your potential customers. They may click on those links and banners and be redirected to a different site. The best thing to do this is to have your own domain and hire someone to make a user-friendly website. In this case, you can manage or update your website anytime.

2. Do some Search Engine Optimization

Once you have your website, invest on its optimization. SEO allows search engines to index your website and display it whenever someone searches for something that you offer. In case, you don’t know anything about SEO, there are local marketing companies that can do the job for you. Just search for a company that offers the best SEO packages. You see, marketing ideas for small business are similar to those huge corporations. The only difference is that big companies have huge marketing budget while small-scale business have limited funds. So, to remedy this issue, proper marketing plan and strategies must be employed.

3. Write reviews or press release

One of those marketing ideas for small business that you can do yourself is to write reviews or press release articles. Make reviews on your products and services and post them on free review sites or directories. You can also write press release and submit it to free press release directories. Doing either of these will not cost you anything since you will be the one to make the contents and submission is also free of charge.

These marketing ideas for small business can be done along with your other promotional campaigns. Try not to spend so much on traditional marketing methods like advertisements on television, radio or newspapers because these are costly and will only last for a short period of time, unless you have the budget to pay for its air time and publication.

FREE Marketing Tools - Are They Really Free?

A few days ago I was browsing aimlessly on the net and I came across a website about building a profitable Internet business.

And the weird (and CRAZY) thing is, this site is giving away $488 worth of valuable Internet Marketing products for FREE! Here is the link FREE Marketing Tools

Yep, all of them as a complimentary GIFT to you.

With this gift, you'll discover and learn how to build a CONSISTENT four figure per month online business FAST.

Just look at this Video Tutorial

(...notice the word CONSISTENT and FAST is in caps lock?)

I say consistent because a lot of the times (almost every time actually) all the Internet Marketing "gurus" claim that you can earn a four or five figure income with their methods.

But what they don't tell you is that with their methods, your income will NOT be CONSISTENT.


Well because these "guru" methods are usually short-lived and temporary, meaning you can't earn consistent monthly income.

Sure you may be able to earn 10k in 1 day.

But how long does it last?

Can you still earn 10k in 1 day one month later?


Take a look at the CRAZY product launch that's happening every single day with the "how I went from zero to 100k per month in just 14 days just by working 2 hours per day" yadda yadda claim…

Yes every single day.

Don't believe me?

Check your email and you'll know what I mean…

Every day you receive numerous sales pitch emails promising you the "next big thing" that if you don't immediately buy, you'll definitely fail in your online business venture bla bla bla…

Next day you receive another email from the SAME marketer, this time offering a different "next big thing" that is supposed to be the best discovery since slice bread.

A few days later this SAME marketer pitches you again on a different product by another marketer and the cycle goes on and on…

Sounds familiar?

And when I say FAST, I don't mean you can build a four figure per month business instantly.

Fast and instant is VERY different!

Instant is very deceiving.

When you say "instant" you almost think that the income you're going to get is very easy to generate without any hard work at all…

(…apart from clicking a few buttons on your mouse)

This is definitely NOT the case here!

When I say "FAST", I mean you learning from the mistakes that other honest Internet marketers have experienced before, and therefore cut short your learning curve so that you can achieve a four figure per month online income much FASTER than if you were to figure out everything for yourself.

Make sense?

Anyway, do you still remember the website I told you at the start of this email?

The one that's giving away $488 worth of Internet Marketing products for FREE?

Well, since this is time-sensitive, I suggest you better claim your FREE GIFTS NOW before it's too late.

How to Get The Most Out Of Something FREE

I have recently found this program from a friend who has been into Affiliate Marketing, and I thought it will be great to share it to other aspiring marketers, freelance workers and everyone who love FREEBIES.

This is called Free Monthly Websites

In my opinion, Free Monthly Websites is one of those programs that some of you are familiar with - free sites to use for your online business. When I say FREE, I mean it's TOTALLY FREE OF CHARGE. Anyway, I will now show you how you can get the most of it and why Free Monthly Websites is such great tool to help you earn extra income stream to your existing online business.

You can sign up for your Free Monthly Websites here.

The 3 main categories to take advantage of:

1, Selling eBooks

2, Writing articles

3, Affiliate promotions

Okay, when you first login and download your free website, follow the tutorials to help you get your website onto your webspace. You are presented with a very nice well designed Adsense website.

What can you do with this free website? Well to be honest the free website has duplicate contents, so you can rule out getting to the top of the search engine rankings. You must edit them to make them unique, but do not lose the thought of the contents.

The premier websites are a different kettle of fish all together but I will get to those in a moment.

So, you have option 1 ‘Selling eBooks’

If you sell eBooks especially PLR (private Label Content) conversions, you will find Free Monthly Websites have a rather large verity of websites that correspond with a lot of the PLR out there (if you are a premier member you get a bonus PLR eBook). All you need to do is upload your eBook to a convenient location on your webspace and place a few corresponding links inside your PLR eBook.

The next category is the option number 2. This is even easier. I know most of you will at some point, or do write articles and submit them to various article directories. So, why not try writing an article about one of the subjects related to Free Monthly Websites? Submit your articles to these directories and link them to your blog or webpage where you have your affiliate links or Adsense. Of course, another income stream will start. Here are some of the best article directories that you may consider:

The third option is a little different. Here, you can earn by using your Free Monthly Websites affiliate link to promote the website and earn a potential $98.50 per referral. You can put your link in the websites provided for you or in the eBooks you sell. You may also place them in the articles you write and publish online. This can generate a missive earnings income of $98.50.

So, through your website, your eBooks and your articles in the article directories, you will be well on your way to earning great income from an Absolutely FREE Resource.

So, here's a link for you:

I hope that all of us will be earning great income before this year ends.

Until next time. Ciao!
