The internet could seem to be a novel place that many of us visit on a daily basis, but for small businesses it represents a big challenge for a lot of reasons. Among them you can find little knowledge of the possibilities to grow thanks to a good internet strategy, little time to devote to something that might seem more for leisure than for business or just because you are focused on trying to grow in your local market.
We want to present how necessary and almost mandatory it becomes for small companies to have an extra tool in your work belt in order to help the small business to grow and improve their sustainability using Internet Marketing.
Internet marketing can be a challenge; we’ll begin by giving you some tips of how this small business can grow his activity using online marketing.
#1 Internet Barrier:
Tip: Internet doesn’t have to be for spending leisure time. Every entrepreneur knows that the longest he works the more valuable his time becomes. But an hour is limited, economically speaking. Starting a web site takes no longer than 30 minutes and devoting an hour a day to it can make it grow incredibly, beyond imagination. There are tools that allow you to begin a website and program the posting of 2 or 3 articles a week that don’t take more than an hour of your time to write, especially if you’re an expert in your market.
#2 Internet Barrier:
That website stuff is for expert programmers, I only know how to use my email and spreadsheet.
Tip: Learning a tool like WordPress and maintaining a web page doesn’t require complex skills on engineering. You can follow the easy steps required to constantly publish new posts that will allow you to generate more and more traffic to your website. If it’s really a problem for you, find someone to help you develop your website and teach you how to keep updating it with new articles. Little by little you’ll acquire the skills to generate and attract more consumers to your site. Internet has 1 billion people looking for information and making businesses on it, don’t worry, they’ll wait for you. They are not leaving!
#3 Internet Barrier:
I know nothing about online sales and marketing.
Tip: No great expertise is required to begin. You only need to know the basic tools and “wash and rinse”… in time you’ll learn more about this business.
#4 Internet Barrier:
Internet is just an expense, too expensive for my business; I can’t afford to maintain a webpage in this company.
Tip: There are ways that allow you to have a webpage that are free, it doesn’t require big expenses, and money shouldn’t be an excuse.
#5 Internet Barrier:
Tip: Get the courage! Make your business have a parallel system online. The internet works 24/7 and around the world. Let the Internet do your advertising all around the world. You can earn money in various ways, through affiliate markets promoting well known products related to your business, through marketing and advertising on your webpage or, putting your business online and taking orders from all around the world and not just from your local market.
#6 Internet Barrier:
I own a local business, I don’t need the Internet because I don’t sell internationally.
Tip: People who go online daily don’t care if your business is local or international. Maybe your neighbor is looking for a product right now and he doesn’t know he could buy it from you. Besides, if you don’t produce consumables, any product you sell can be easily exported… you can even put your inventory on Amazon.com and use their sales system to reach more people in the world!
Every small business owner is looking to grow his business, because he knows that he must do so in order to keep in business. Also, as entrepreneurs that began small, we know that there are times when our business is doing well and others not so much, and we wish to have some alternative to help through the rough times.
The Internet provides two very important things in this sense, a possibility of growth and a chance for extra income.
Turn your passion and your life into an international business. It doesn’t matter if you start it from your living room or a small place in your local market. Get the courage and check out the excellent possibilities of growth for you, your loved ones and your business. We encourage you to experiment and try to develop beyond what you have right now.
