5 Marketing Ideas for a Local Small Business

Marketing Tips

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

1. Start following the trend of weekly theme like #FearlessFriday #ThrowbackThursday #SaturdaySpecial etc.

2. Direct Mail is still very useful, and small businesses can use with some beneficial results. “A whopping 98% of consumers bring in their mail the day it is delivered, and 77% sort through it immediately”.

3. Start a business blog. A blog can help your business in many ways such as boost the website traffic, target potential clients, develop a community, etc.

4. Try conducting online contests, create coupons, reward programs, free samples, affiliate programs, etc.

5. Sponsor events where your target audience is present.
