co Small Business Realities Of Online Marketing |

Depending on how small your business really is, you might not have the money to pay for online marketing services. Then again, you might not have the time to do it yourself. What a quandary!

But online marketing is becoming – in fact, it has already become – an essential format of marketing in the 21st century. You’d be hard pressed to run a business today without some form of Internet presence.

So what do you do? How do you go about getting your business online without taking time away from your clients and without spending a fortune?

First, start with your website. If you don’t have one, get one. The good news about that is you can start with a small website that won’t cost you a fortune. It’s a one-time payment that will last a lifetime.

Next, get up fifteen minutes earlier every day and engage in a little social media interaction. Just fifteen minutes in the morning, a few minutes mid-day when you can fit it in, and another fifteen minutes at the end of the day can mean a lot to your business over the long haul. That’s right, just 30-45 minutes a day of social media marketing through two or three online media outlets can give you a start to your online marketing. Once you see how a small investment of your time can help you achieve minimal success, you’ll be ready to take it a step further.

The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Why not take that online marketing step today?
