Marketing Ideas for Small Business

Marketing Ideas For Small Business is a topical subject at any time of year. Never more so than when a year draws to a close and many of us say…..”Next year I am going to do it differently !” Well as an online marketer myself it can be a challenge to move from in front of the computer

Yet

the reality is, interacting and networking with others will bring many more marketing ideas for small business ideas and opportunities than most people appreciate. I was motivated to write this post as this morning I was chatting to a good friend of mine who I have also done some work with. He has a great new business venture selling the most amazing designer door handles Our conversation today sparked a number of other ideas and at least 2 Joint Venture ideas. ( E commerce is a bit of a new passion for me

)

Originally I met Stuart through networking as we where both at the same seminar together. The Internet marketing industry is an isolating career at times. You work from home, usually on solo projects, and except for the occasional forum and chat room participation, you don’t have the opportunity to interact with others ( or create it for that matter !) Some newbie ‘net marketers take it to an extreme level of isolation, never branding their name, watching forum posts from the sidelines, too scared to put themselves out there for judgment in the marketplace. But networking will help you make big gains as an online marketer. First and foremost, it helps you brand your name in the marketplace. You’ll always want to participate in the Internet marketing niche, even if it’s not the niche you’re making money with.

The reason for this is because you can find potential Joint Venture partners who are in the same (or a complementary) niche as you. These relationships and bonds you build with other marketers could serve you well in the future. Within your moneymaking niche, you want to network as well. Always put your sights on someone who’s a step above you on the ladder of success. This will help you build your own business because you’re catapulting your momentum forward rather than taking a step backward as an unknown. If at all possible, try to attend Internet marketing seminars and seminars within your niche. You’ll meet people and gain valuable insight that isn’t sold on the ‘net – secrets shared as good friends rather than sold to a general public. Seminars can help you bounce ideas off of others and generate some new ideas based on what you learn. It can also help you locate products and services that will help your business. You might meet graphic designers, freelance writers, or even a so-called “guru” who could give your product or site a mention to his own mega list. If you attend a seminar, have some business cards ready to hand out to people that include your name, email address, and website. Get cards from others, too and then follow up on those contacts to remind people of who you are – thanking them if they provided you with any information that helps you on your journey to becoming a successful Internet marketer. After you attend enough seminars, you may even be asked to be a speaker at one, now how about that as a marketing idea for a small business? Additional exposure to hundreds more people all at one go. To You and Your Online Success Denise and Sharon
