Free Marketing Ideas For Your Home Business
If you run a business from home, you probably know how important free marketing ideas can be for your situation. After all, you most likely don’t have the budget some larger companies do for advertising and other marketing costs. Marketing can be expensive, but I have some tips for you that will cost you nothing except some of your time and your strong desire to promote yourself.
If you don’t already have a website for your business, by all means create one. A website is your introduction to the Internet community. You can create your own web page free of charge using Internet sites such as Google, Yahoo, Yola and many more.
Here are a few free marketing ideas: It doesn’t cost anything to network with people and create an interest in your home-based business. Talk in person to friends and family and ask them to spread the word. Get your name out there on the free social networking sites such as Facebook, Myspace, Twitter and LinkedIn. Open an account using your business name on each of these sites if you wish and be sure to include a link on each site to one another and link back to that web page you’ve created free of charge.
Marketing ideas are all over the place if you know where to look! The next time you go on Craigslist to search for something, take a tour around that site. People in business have ads all over it! And the ads don’t cost a cent! So post an ad on Craigslist and market your company free of charge.
Blogs are a great way to generate interest in your home business. Write an interesting article on your blog a couple of times a week at a minimum in order to keep things fresh and interesting. If your home-based business is selling cosmetics, for example, write about the latest products you have in stock. Or write articles about how using one of your mascara products can change a person’s entire look.
The idea is to get people interested in reading your blog and clicking on the links to your website and other links. And guess what? You can get a free blog on sites such as Blogger, WordPress, Weebly and many other sites. And, of course, you’ll have links on your blog to your website, Facebook page, Twitter account…. I think you get the hang of it now!
Take advantage of just these few free marketing ideas and your home business will begin to swell with customers you never knew you could attract.
