” With me being a small business, what’s the most effective means for me to get my brand out there and get noticed according to priority and importance?”
Marketing your small business is essential for you to generate leads and ultimately convert your customers. While it’s important to have a bag of ready marketing strategies that will define your products or services—the choices out there can be overwhelming and a bit expensive.
Overwhelming because there’s just too much information, offers, how to’s, etc.
Expensive because it might lead you to numerous sign-ups, courses that take time to finish and costly mistakes due to trial and error.
Which is why it’s important to cover just the essentials—especially if you are just starting out and on a budget.
Presenting Top 3 Must-Have Marketing Strategies for Small Businesses

They think that when it comes to branding--graphics is the key. What they fail to realize is that Branding should be on point, communicates to the customer firstly and should never be a complex mumbo jumbo of words.

Having a clear, easy to relate to the brand that your customer can identify and engage with is key to successful marketing.
2. Using Social Media Effectively— Social Media is an imperative, low cost but highly engaging channel when done right. A lot of businesses think that employing Social Media as part of their strategy is all about just creating and paying for ads in order to generate leads and conversions.
