What’s the difference between marketing for small businesses versus large businesses?
Trick question! It’s all the same. Just because you’re a small business doesn’t give you any less power in the marketing world. The magnitude of your overall marketing plan might be slightly different, but all the strategies are the same! You are still entitled to the same networking abilities and attention from marketing specialists.
The Pros of Small Business Marketing Plans
With smaller businesses, the less expensive and faster ways of getting your messages across are likely to bring in a large amount of attention. For example, boosting a Facebook post is less expensive and quicker than creatin something larger scale like a billboard advertisement, and it will pay off in your favor. Joining face-to-face networking groups, hosting classes/events and sending out monthly newsletters are additional quick ways to market your business or brand that don’t require a large budget to make an impact.
