Leaning how to market via the school of hard knocks, aka learning on your own is not the recommended way, but you can learn a great deal that reading books, listening to recordings or webinars won’t teach you.
Most people don’t apply what they hear, or read. Took to anyone and they will tell you the same, people spend a lot of money on programs but never apply the principles.
The best way to market your business is the oldest way known to man, word of mouth.
How does word of mouth work in the real world? You perform a service or sell a product, that person tells someone else. It isn’t easy, but it is still the best way to market your brand.
For entrepreneurs who run small businesses, marketing is the lifeblood of success.
Entrepreneurs and small businesses need to have a platform just like large corporations. They also aggressively use social media without being spammy by always selling.
Social media is about engaging and building relationships with potential customers by stating what you have to offer without hard selling all the time.
Branding works best when being authentic and transparent. You also need to be consistent across all sites where you visit.
Also recommended is a blog. A blog is the simplest form of a platform that you can have. There are many blog sites that are free where you can choose a template, and be up and blogging within minutes.
Your blog should be relevant to your business. Write about what you offer and what makes you different from someone else. Engage you blog readers and interact with them.
