5 Powerful Tactics To Market Your Online Business On A Shoestring Budget

If purchasing advertisement space on websites is momentarily beyond your budget, there are still many other things you can do to continue marketing your online business without hurting your pockets.

Create A Blog

The blogging community is rich with potential customers, partners, suppliers, and distributors. Just about any kind of associate you need for your online business can be found in blogging communities, and you can easily gain access to them with your blog.

Of course, make sure to apply appropriate SEO techniques when writing in your blog. Be sure to use keywords in your blog title and description as well as your postís title and content. Use trackbacks when appropriate, invite your readers to comment on your entries, and donít forget to include your blog in blog directories!

Submit Articles To Article Directories And Other Websites

Many websites will allow you to advertise about your online business in exchange for your article contribution. To do this, youíll naturally need excellent writing skills. Also, make sure your topic matches the overall theme of the website. You can advertise about your online business by including its URL and a short description of it in the paragraph containing your brief biography and which usually appears below your work.

As for article directories, you have to make sure you submit the same information about your article. Use the same title, description, tags, and links for the article.

Be Active In Forums

Forums, just like blogging communities, are just teeming with people who can benefit your online business one way or another. To market your online business effectively, start by choosing a username that best reflects your online business Ė it could be your business name or something similar. Next, upload either your personal photo or the logo of your business. Fill up the blanks in your profile page, and make sure you include details about your online business. Lastly, post a one-liner about your business and its URL address in your signature.

Choose carefully which threads you wish to post a message in. Make your posts informative as much as possible. Donít post if you donít have anything significant to contribute. Even better, try concentrating on threads where you can show your expertise but without bragging, of course! Finally, open your own thread once in a while, and be sure to focus on topics that would generate active discussion or debate and one thatís related to your online business.

Form Joint Ventures With Other Websites

You donít have money for a huge marketing budget, but surely you have other resources that other websites might want for themselves? Itís all about looking for ideal partners with whom you can enjoy a mutually beneficial working relationship. Joint ventures are simply a matter of give and take. You need advertising opportunities from them and they need something from you. Both of you will end up happy by helping each other.

Create Video Marketing Clips

You donít need expensive video recording equipment and advanced software programs to create an effective marketing video. All you need is a great script and maybe some basic video editing skills. They can run as short as half a minute and still get your message delivered! Even better, you can post them in high-traffic websites like You Tube for free!

All these require only effort and creativity from your part. Some of them wonít even cost you a dime. As you can see, marketing on a shoestring budget isnít impossible. You just have to work harder than usual.
