Marketing Your Site

What's New ?

Low Risk Marketing

Many new small businesses today believe they need to spend thousands of dollars on marketing each year to generate sales. This simply isn't true. We will take a look at a real world example and explain how a new business can be marketed without spending a fortune.

A new flower shop opens and can choose to blanket their market area with television commercials, full page newspaper ads and other small business budget busting advertising that has no guaranteed return. Inexpensive advertising has no guarantee either but it won't break your budget.

The new flower shop could run several small classified ads that point to a website and let the website fill in what is lacking from the classified ad. Mailers could be sent to funeral homes, churches, bridal boutiques etc to remind people to consider your business when they are in need of flowers. Offer discounts to attract new business and provide superior customer service to get them to return.

Lists of business owners and leaders are not difficult to get a hold of. Contact companies with discounts aimed toward secretary’s week and other company rewards. The Flower shop could offer a reminder service for important dates such as birthday’s, anniversaries and other special events.

None of these ideas will break the bank and all have the possibility to generate business on a consistent basis. You can avoid the risk of costly marketing and get your business off the ground with out being buried in debt.
 
A Fond Farewell to "The Spark"

Several years ago David Filo and Jerry Yang, founders of Yahoo! assembled a team of editors (for lack of a better description) to search the internet for new and interesting topics. Over 50 "Editors have made over a 1000 posts that range from heart felt to funny and some might even be considered outrageous.

In December 2010 the group bid a fond farewell.  You can read the article titled "A Fond Farewell" by scrolling about halfway down the page.

Oddly enough, there seems to be current posts to the page that are dated 6 months after the farewell. Some things never die.

You can view "The Spark" archives here.
