How To Use GOOGLE TRENDS To Grow A Small Business Online FAST
Not sure if your local SEO efforts are working? Stop guessing and learn what really matters when it comes to helping your small business show up in local search results. Local SEO Guide has studied the effect of more than 100 factors on the rankings of 30,000 local businesses. In this Manta webinar, guest expert Andrew Shotland shares actionable advice for small business owners, so you know which search optimization strategies to focus on to get the best results.
http://www.deanethridge.com/small-business-marketing/free-online-marketing-course-small-business-marketing-strategies/ Small Business Marketing Strategies Overview – If you own a small business or wanting to learn how to market online, I'm really glad you're here. I've been a small business marketing consultant for a little over a year now, and that was a direct result of learning how to market online for myself first. What I've discovered in the small business marketplace is that the business owners are inundated with advertising agencies and marketing companies proposing marketing programs that either worked in the past (and don't anymore), or they are sold marketing solutions that are way too expensive for their budgets for the benefit they can gain from it.
I see gross overcharging more than anything from SEO companies that don't know Search Engine Optimization. I see web designers selling custom websites for 5-6K to a local pizza shop with no SEO foundation to get found. (That's equivalent to putting their business that needs foot traffic in the middle of nowhere) I see video production companies making 3-5K videos that again, never get noticed online because there is no search engine foundation support to get it to rank online. I saw a guy that paid YP.com $589 a month for…I'm still trying to figure out what he was paying for…
It's incredulous to me the types of marketing proposals being pitched in the marketplace to small business owners that can't afford to throw their (extremely) hard earned money away. So for a long time I've wanted to try to make a difference and help all I could to those that are interested in truly finding a way to affordably grow their business.
I'm creating a free online marketing course (there will be offline marketing training too) for anyone that wants to learn how to make money online, someone interested in learning local marketing to small business owners, or for the small business owner on a budget that can finally get sustainable results for their business, guaranteed.
The online marketing course is called Local Business Gold and I'm telling you, it's going to be incredible! I'm going to share almost everything I know about local marketing, ranking videos and websites quickly, learn how to capture customer data to follow up, save money, get cheap branding packages, build affordable websites, outsource…everything! This is the first lesson so let's go ahead and get started.
Free Online Marketing Course – Small Business Marketing "Big Rocks"
I started a company called 360 Business Reviews and what we do when we first meet a small business owner is put the pen and paper aside and simply lesson to what's going on with this business. If the business owner will open up and be transparent, we simply want to know where their pain is, where they are advertising (is it working?), what their online foundation looks like, and focus on their "Big Rocks" (core marketing components they need to establish a solid presence).
