Top 10 ways you can market on a shoestring budget


  1. Post amazing content on your blog

Your blog will be the foundation of all your other marketing efforts. It is where you direct visitors, nurture relationships and capture leads. Be sure to regularly post content that meets the needs and interests of your audience.

  1. Create a Google My Business account.

If you want your business to show up in local search, a Google My Business account is a necessity. This will make sure your business is not only visible on search, but on Google Maps and Google+ as well.

  1. Build a free (or cheap) email list.

Every business owner should have an email list! But when you are just starting out, you likely don’t want to commit to the monthly fee that many email management services charge. Fortunately, most offer a free option for businesses with smaller lists. For instance, MailChimp offers its service for free for businesses with fewer than 2,000 subscribers. And when you are ready to take things to the next level, aWeber starts at just $19/month.

  1. Attend local networking events.

Check out local business events on Meetup.com, or see what events your local chamber or small business association is hosting.

  1. Create a free Yelp listing.

If you are a local business, consider adding your business to Yelp. It’s free, and can be a great way to increase your visibility in the search engines.

  1. Create a Facebook group.

Create a topical Facebook group that your prospects would be eager to join. Center it around a topic or theme, not around your business. For instance, a marketer could create a group called “Marketing Tips For Small Business Owners.”

  1. Create eye-catching business cards.

Making your business cards stand out from the pack can get you noticed at live business events. Faceless Technologies has some of the national leading creative designs available. We are currently running some of the best specials on Plastic Business cards nationwide!

  1. Offer amazing free info on social media.

As a marketing strategist, I can’t leave this one out! Share valuable information with your social media fans and followers, and become a trusted expert in your industry. Wondering what you should share? Stay tuned to our write ups so that you can find out.

  1. Take advantage of Facebook’s and Google’s free ad credits.

Facebook and Google are always giving away free ad credit vouchers. Take advantage of the free vouchers they offer and take PPC advertising for a test drive.

  1. Make Sure your business is listed on a few Key High PR Ranking Webpages

SuperPages.com and Yellow Pages ( www.yp.com )are great along with www.Manta.com and other business listing sites such as these. Start here and contact us for a couple more for free ( send an email to info@facelesstechnologies.com with your domain, business name and number and we will send you right back at least 5 additional links you should be using at no cost to you)

 

BONUS. Remember your brand is always open.

Understand that the experience your customers get from working with you is always on. So Have your answering service for after hours calls or your auto –reply for emails bring a smile to someone’s face. We liked this idea we saw once that said “We’re Sorry. We are so exhausted from giving such great customer service that we needed a little sleep. Leave us your info and we will get back to you in the morning when we are nice and refreshed!”

Generate leads Through Media Exposure


If you’re like most business people, the first of the year is a time of reflection for past successes and failures and a time for planning a path for the next year. To be successful, we need to stop doing the things that aren’t working and do more of the things that are! For many, this means having to change old habits or break long-term relationships. Sayings like “This is the way we’ve always done it” don’t work anymore. Today the internet is becoming a very large part of a successful business marketing plan. Your clients are using Smart phones and iPhones for their everyday searches. It’s time to update your website and begin an internet marketing program—something that can really help grow your business.

Getting media exposure is one of the best ways to drive a ton of traffic to your website. Traffic that can turn into leads and, eventually, into paying clients. This type of exposure works because it helps establish you as an expert, something few other forms of marketing can do as well (or as quickly). It also gets you in front of prospective clients who possibly wouldn’t have heard about you through other marketing vehicles. Just as important, it brings down your prospects’ defenses and allows you to communicate your value more openly and without having to overcome direct buyer objections. That’s because when most people see you mentioned in an article or featured on the news, they feel you’re providing them with valuable or interesting information, and not necessarily selling your services directly.

What exactly does pitching the media involve? Mainly, it’s about contacting media outlets that would be potentially interested in your story. You can pitch to your local TV, radio, newspaper, or even national media. Local media often covers news specific to your area, and oftentimes you are afforded the opportunity to provide more personal information. National media pitches will need to have more of a broad appeal, since it reaches a larger audience. Think about what’s unique about you, your story or your services and how it can relate to a newsworthy event or holiday. Then, start drafting a rough pitch idea based on that hook or unique angle. Having a Unique Selling Point in your “Elevator Pitch” will help bring interest in your brand while maintaining something special that attracts potential clients. Circulate your message and present your product and service in the form of “newsworthy content”. The trick is exactly that: you want to create a press release/article or story that appears to be news, rather than an advertisement. A well-written online news release is a great asset. We will post tips and some basic help on how to write a great press release coming up shortly.
