5 Marketing Techniques Every Entrepreneur Should Use

Presenting the most effective marketing techniques for entrepreneurs that can spread the word about your business overnight!

When you’ve set up your business and everything seems to be in place, the next step for you is marketing.

Taking your product to its potential consumers…

That’s a big challenge for many since not every entrepreneur comes from a marketing background.

Sometimes, even marketing majors may find the real experience of marketing nothing like what they’ve studied in the textbooks.

So, has your marketing plan proved disappointing so far?

Don’t worry!

Below are the top five marketing techniques which you can use to gain maximum publicity for your business easily.

1) Start a Referral Program

Referral marketing is a great way to get lots of word-of-mouth publicity.

Most customers feel excited about referral programs, since they can earn discounts and free gifts without making much of an effort.

People already talk a lot about random stuff…

And when talking about your business earns them free vouchers or financial gain, who wouldn’t like a share?

Also, a recent survey showed that about 92% of people trust personal recommendations.

So, think about introducing a referral program!

2) Create a Website or Social Media Page

If you don’t have a website or social media page for your business, well, let’s face it, you’re doomed.

This is the era of the internet and everything is just one click away.

Work on getting a decent, responsive website (or a social media page) for your brand because you can’t really survive without one these days.

3) Hold a Contest

Running a contest can be very effective, particularly if you give cash prizes.

The very sight of dollar bills gets people going…

And, don’t worry, the prize need not necessarily be like 1000s of dollars.

As little as $50 per winner can work pretty well for you!

4) Flyers and Posters Still Work

Yeah, they still do.

But, for this marketing strategy you’re going to require an expert copywriter.

You can use segmentation and target the areas where you think most of your potential customers are and bombard them with your flyers and posters…

But, wait!

If you want a flooding response, the ads should contain some promise of free coupons, gifts or freebies – otherwise who cares?

5) Try Email Marketing

About 3.9 billion people around the world use email for communication.

And, the figure is going to grow to 4.3 billion in 2023.

So, with almost half of the world’s population using electronic mail, this is definitely a great platform to talk about your business.

But, you’ll need an email marketing expert for your campaign.

Hire someone with proven expertise, because millions of emails get labeled as spam and go straight to trash every year.

And you surely don’t want the same fate for your emails, right?


So, that’s about it.

The above five techniques are easy to use, cheap and still very effective…

You can use one, two, three, or all of the above techniques – that’s very much up to you.

Once the money starts rolling in you can then go for bigger marketing plans…

For now, all the very best!
