You will learn about Small Business Marketing techniques that you can use yourself, or have experts do you. Some of them are free, while others cost, but to start off you can do most yourself.
With search engines, social media, and other useful tools out there its not very hard to get your message across. Offering your services to wide audience that are ready to pay for them became much easier. Whether you are offering services, products or anything that can make you money, there is always someone willing to pay for it.
There are different ways to do it, but to put it simple: time = money = profits
So the question of how much would you like to invest and how much of profits do you want to generate depend on the time you can put into the SEO, Marketing,money for Pay Per click and social media campaigns.
There is an easy way of paying for everything, but this wouldn’t be a good solution for anyone who is just starting and looking to spend as little as possible.
Few options for small businesses looking for easy and cheap advertisement is simply opening up all the social media available on the internet ( and there are a lot of them) adding yourself to a lot of groups, slowly adding people (remember that most of social media will ban spammers) and offering your services/products to targeted audience.
For a hair saloon you would target anyone in the area, for real estate same, but for specific business like tractor parts you would have to do a lot more research.
Keyword planning and utilizing is the key element in small business marketing!
Websites are the tools of the future, and the future is today. So how do you get your message across?
Easy – if you are selling tractor parts you can write a blog on each part that you are selling. The probability of someone finding an article through search engine will triple if you have a blog on it, in fact it will give you a strong tool to promote your services while offering insight on the product that you are selling. Whoever is searching in google he is more likely to find a fresh article on the product he is looking for, then finding a service page on your website that mentioned that part.
SEO optimization is all about the keywords that you put on your page, on the pictures that you use on the page, so that the search engines can index the page and offer it to the users looking for the specific part.
If you use a keyword like Tractor parts and are offering breaks for tractors (sorry I am not a tractor expert) you probably will never get anyone on your website through search engine searches.
Sometimes it is good to use a specific term like cheap haircuts in 92122 and with broad keywords (they will be matched to other keywords that people type) it is more likely that someone will find you through google, and therefore become a customer that will bring you profits.

Now you always have to know who your competitors are, what they offer and be realistic in your expectations, but if everything is done correctly you can be looking at the great profits and fast expansion of your small business.
The only downside is that it takes time, first few weeks the pay per click campaign could be used for strategic marketing in the future, so you have to be patient and ready to invest some money into the planning, after which you can start to generate the profit and keep on adapting the campaigns for more successful business model.
