Online Marketing For Small Business
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Being a small business owner, I recently made a complete shift in my marketing; on the belief that Online Marketing For Small Business is here to stay.

Not only have I made a complete shift in business...I have also made it my mission...to help other small business owners open up to the same idea.

What follows are some of my reasons for making the shift in my marketing, along with some of what I discovered to be true, and what is false.

True Versus False

Let's do true and false first, since it will probably be more exciting.......

True or False: Can you become a millionaire overnight(seemingly) with online marketing?

Believe it or not, this one is true!!! However odds are if you're the local plumber, landscaper, auto body shop owner...you get my drift right?...It's just not going to happen. Also, from what I've seen so far, the whole online instant millionaire from marketing thing, is more about who you know that can make you a star over night, than anything else.

But you can get more customers, build relationships faster maybe even better, and sell more of your goods and services with online marketing.

True or False: Simply build and get traffic.

This one is false to the tune of hundreds sometimes thousands of dollars, that small business owners are spending on websites. Yet they do nothing to drive quality traffic to their site, and there's usually no real call to action on their site.

Do you have a website for marketing your small business? If not do you plan on setting one up? If so, you now know it takes a little more than just building it:)

True or False: Online marketing is difficult and costly.

Although this last one is false, for many it can be and is true! With the difference mainly being, that for those finding it difficult and costly, either they lack the proper skills tools and or knowledge, or the proper application of such.

So if you're ever having difficulties with, or find your marketing too costly, check to make sure you have the proper skills tools and or knowledge, including the right application.

Reasons Behind The Madness

now for some of my reasons for making the shift to online marketing.

I was told I could reach more people online, sell more goods and services online, all while providing better service and value. I'm happy to say that so far it's all been true!
