Trying to compete against large firms and businesses on a small budget can be a daunting task. Wondering how to promote your business? It’s easier than you think. There are some easy and free ways to promote business online.
Michael Gray, in 13 Ways to Promote Your Local Business for Free, gives some great tips on how to promote your business or firm. Consider starting with listing your firm on any of these sites:
Google Local – This should be your first step, as it is an easy way to promote a business online.
Simply create a Google Local account by entering your firm’s contact information, and then verify it. In a few weeks, you should have a map listing of your firm.
Once you have that, be sure to take advantage of several free tools. Google Coupons allows you to create coupons that will appear on relevant searches. Another great tool, Google Base, tries to weed out the best, most relevant answer from different data sources. You can upload your firm and its services into Google Base and earn special treatment.
