Read on to find out how to promote your small business despite not having a large budget.

Organize an open house

Holding an open house is an exciting and engaging way to market your product and services to local customers. It is best to do the open house during the first week of business. Make sure to organize an attractive event that will captivate your guests. For example. If you have a service for other business owners (B2B) then organizing a business networking event at your location can bring 100s of business owners to your front door! You don’t even have to market it on your own. Look for other business networking groups and volunteer your location! The idea is to socialize your with potential clients while educating them about the products and services you offer.

Use email marketing

Ignore what you have heard. Email marketing is huge and it works too. Most businesses prefer email marketing because it is efficient and inexpensive. Start by building a credible email list. With an email list, you can market your business to potential customers. Also, you talk to them about new strategies, products, and upcoming events. However, make sure you do not spam your customers’ emails. The goal is to send them valuable information while selling your products and services.

Use affiliate programs

An affiliate program can encourage your many people to be followers of your brand. The big advantage with creating your own affiliate program is that if done right, you can quickly and easily create a HUGE sales force for your company. You pay only on performance but with so many people promoting your offering, your brand will grow quickly and almost effortlessly. The key to a successful affiliate program is to find the market and “thought leaders” in your industry. Invite them to try your services and if they like it, become affiliates. This is also a great way to get feedback on your offering. These people have their finger on the pulse of your industry and know what the end user wants and needs.

Become an in-kind sponsor for a Non-profit Government Organizations

An In-kind sponsorship is when you donate your goods or services rather than cash. For example, you own an advertising agency. You may offer to give them all the pens and pads of paper they need for their event. Of course everything you donate can have a “sponsored by” and your contact info on them. Another popular item is T shirts with the NGO name on the front and your “sponsorship on the back”,

An in-kind sponsorship can increase the visibility of your business, thereby enabling you to sell your products to new customers. NGOs target sponsors all the time. Whether the sponsorship is in-kind or monetary, NGOs will consider you. For instance, if you sponsor an event that targets your potential customers, you can promote your brand and even sell your products.

Increase your online activity

By being active online, you can connect with more clients and businesses within your industry. Be active on social media platforms like Twitter, Google+, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, and Linkedin. Create engaging content and market it on these forums. Respond to customers queries. When you participate in such platforms, you will enhance the credibility of your brand. When you are more active online, you get more visibility for your business.

Contest / Awards

Participating in a contest is a good way to build your brand, get some free publicity and attract potential venture capitalist / investors. You don’t even have to win, just place highly enough to get interviewed as a finalist. Of course winning would bring in a lot more publicity so go for it!

Organize a meet-up

Organizing a meet-up event can be rewarding. It is a casual and free event that can enable you to socialize with potential clients and other business partners. A meet-up can help you network with more people offline while boosting the awareness of your brand and educating them about your product and services.

Be social

No doubt that you will be busy most the time after the launch of your business. However, do create time to talk to friends, family, and neighbors. Meet with local business owners and introduce yourself. Talk to them about your business and let them know that how you are happy you will be working in the same environment.
