There is so much information on the web to help you market your small business, but sometimes it can be overwhelming to digest it all and execute.
I certainly think so. I am forever a student and love learning about new marketing tools and strategies that I can implement to help small business owners get ahead of the game.
I want to share with 4 excellent resources on the web that I visit often for valuable content. These sites and bloggers cut through the clutter and provides inspiration on those much needed moments.
1. www.entrepreneur.com offers a wealth of great articles, how to pieces and inspiration to help you figure out your business and marketing game plan. I especially like this section Marketing Basics which provides valuable how to information about marketing your business. In addition, there is a section that highlights how other real life small businesses are succeeding.
2. www.smallbiztrends.com pretty much has everything you need as a resource for your small business. The categories include marketing, finance, advice, events and many more. This is definitely a one stop shop. Here is a great article I found for inspiration: How an Old School Business Discovered the Internet and Grew 350 Percent
3. www.socialmediaexamier.com is where the social media gurus live. It is the largest online social media magazine and is full of great information on how to market your business on the various platforms. I like that you can listen to podcasts on this site which gives us a break from reading. If you are getting started on social media, here is a getting started tool you can use - Getting Started with Social Media.
4. Lastly a few blogs I like to follow and read for perspective includes; Jeff Bullas, Convince and Convert and Online Marketing Addicts. These blogs are not necessarily the best of the best, but for me they provide good valuable insight on what these experts in their respective fields see working for them and how we can apply it to our business. Read and decide for yourself.
If you have any suggestions on where to get valuable easy to digest content. Please share with me. Thanks.
