Local Internet marketing is getting better for small businesses. As more and more small business owners take an interest in the medium, the opportunities just keep getting better. And no matter what kind of business you are in, there is at least half a dozen different Internet marketing methods that you can use to promote your business. And for most businesses, you can expand that list to as many as 12 or 15 ways. Do you know what they are?
Don’t worry. You don’t have to be a genius to market yourself online. You just need a little bit of savvy and drive. One small business owner I know has marketed her doll making business entirely through Yahoo! Groups. And that’s just one possibility.
What Internet marketing methods you use depend a great deal on the type of business you have. So much less on where you are located. But no matter what business you are in, I’d recommend these Internet marketing methods as a start:
- Search Engine Optimization
- Blog Marketing
- Directory Listings
- E-mail Marketing
- Forum Posting
- Article Marketing
These are the basic Internet marketing methods. All of them have been around in some form since early or mid-1990s. They have built many good businesses and I’m confident they can help you build yours too.
