A social presence is crucial in today’s world. So many people look to a business’ Facebook and Twitter accounts before making a purchase. This also happens to be pretty affordable if done the right way. For example, it’s free to create social media accounts. Do this for all the avenues that are appropriate for your company: LinkedIn, Tumblr, Facebook, Google+, Pinterest,and so on. Get your information out there, post every day, engage customers, and share noteworthy information and pictures. This helps build your personality and encourage brand awareness.
If you have an in-house writer, utilize their talents as much as you can. Content is a great way to market on a budget. Create a blog that you post to every week. Build eBooks and guides that your customers can refer to. Write press releases that can be sent out about upcoming events, changes in your company, and so on. Build content that can be distributed through your social media, and do it all with little to no cost.

Whether they want to buy whatever it is you have to offer, or whether they want to begin a partnership, business cards leave an impression. It’s a great way to give people your professional information and engage. These are also pretty affordable and go such a long way.
