NEW YORK, Nov. 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Small business owners continue to leverage unique marketing opportunities that allow them to compete with the major players in their industries—even without the luxury of big budgets. However, they may not be aware of the cost-effective options that are available within arm's reach.
PR Newswire's Small Business PR Toolkit contributing author, Phillip Thune, believes that small businesses—even with limited resources and budgets, can take advantage of the benefits of budget-friendly brand exposure. In his latest post, Thune suggests you can increase your brand's visibility by:
- Google Adwords. Considered to be one of the most direct and effective ways to market your business online, it can also be one of the most complicated. Since you only pay when someone clicks on your ad (i.e. you pay per click) and you determine exactly how much you want to spend, this is an extremely cost-effective method to explore.
- Social Media Advertising. Social media platforms offer advanced, but affordable advertising options that you can use to target your consumers with demographic, keywords and interest-based campaigns.
- Industry Awards. Incorporating industry awards into your marketing program is an inexpensive way to stand out from the competition. Winning industry awards provides a unique opportunity for businesses to boost brand awareness, increase store or site traffic and enhance your credibility as a business.
