Hi. I also have a small business and been existing for like 5 years already. I have the same question you have way back then. Now I would say that It isn't a for me question anymore. Just like what I said, It is a small business. But it grew much bigger that It was. But it took me awhile before It grows. I did a lot of research, sent flyers, advertisement and even social media. These are very essential.

If you are just starting out, use social media in advertising. You don't have to spend that much but still serves its purpose.

On traditional side, nothing beats the word of mouth. An excellent experience with your make makes your buyer recommend it to other people

Lastly, make sure to put labels with the business contact details.

Hmmm for me it depends on what people really needs and think something that really works and make sure you have less compititors.

The most important things in creating business is courage and passion for me that's the most important things so don't be afraid trust yourself think positive as always because negative mind brought your business down.

And learned to listen what people said about your product or your business if it's bad comment take it as a good comment because for me it's the best way to make business perpect or a product perfect.

Make a survey put a touchscreen desktop or ect. On the front of your cashier if someone pay to the cashier the costumer will see your survey.

Make a simple survey like
Are you satisfied ? Just press
Yes or No

That's all I hope it will help.

Knowing your product is the first thing you should master so whatever the customer will ask you, they'll have answer. You can start blogging and posting on social media depending on your product.

Probably the best way to market you small business is through your social media where you can post there and your friends will look and will liked it or they would even share it to other people. You can also use the Facebook ad for at least $5 to make your own ad for your business and also the influencers you can contact them as well to boost and market your product.

I also have a small business. and someday I dream of having my own physical store of my business, but looking at the trend today, people are shifting more to e-commerce business. That is why we should take full advantage of our social media platform, our web development and other means or e-commerce.

I am also into small business. A lot of them failed, but those failures makes me learn important things in putting up business. Prayer is a great help. You need to have a survey on the location where you plan to put up your business. Know your market needs and wants. Is your business appropriate in that area? Tools in marketing is also relevant. Learn how to reach them by their way, like if they are in the city use e-commerce. And learn how to approach your market as well, be flexible. Attitude has a great role in reaching out your goal.

I'm currently in a small business now, I do marketing thru online and offline. First I just need to know my target market it's based on what you are selling of course. If you know your target market just be focus on them because they are the reason why you are selling you products. Second you can give discounts and promos by buying you products at 10 pieces or more. Third If you are selling foods you must also consider free tasting, word of mouth is the best. Fourth you can give flyers. And lastly you can also market your business thru Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube for free.
Hope it will help you. :)

Very first thing is your website should be user- friendly, easy navigation. Then doing surveys, digital marketing, SEO, SEM, PPC also helps in driven customers. Now the biggest drawback in an eCommerce website is that, very few are proficiently manages to convert a usual visitor to a sale. For this, offering schemes, discounts would do.

You can promote your business on social media sites such as Facebook and Instagram, wherein you already have a market who are your friends. you can have them share what you post so their friends could also see what you offer. Part of the success of your business will depend on who's your demographics. Are the products you are selling targets the teens, young professionals, parents, middle-aged community, men or women? You can have variety of products, but still it counts on what you prefer.

Another strategy would be into offer discounts during holidays like Christmas or Valentines Day. These are the times where people have a lot of options at the mall or boutiques. Of course, you also want to be part of those options.

Eventually, you can create your site as your budget progress. Buy your domain name and web hosting. These can expand the number of followers, not just locals, but world wide.

depending on the type of the business you started and the niche you're aiming for, for example if you own a fast food restaurant it's not the same like if you own a book store, be precise, aim for a good niche then the rest will be easier, like if you own a business withing the food field then a very specific Facebook could do the work, good visual a short friendly clip or a could poster could be perfect, but still in other types of business it could be totally different.

You can start with business cards, flyers and newspaper advertising. For any new business to grow, word of mouth is very important especially for small businesses. Then moving on you can visit various communities, events, trade shows etc in your targeted area to communicate with customers and clients. At these trade shows or events, you can use option of promotional giveaways for promoting your brand name. Just remember that these giveaways should be trendy and useful so that they will make the user remember your brand name every time they use the brand. You can also use internet marketing (SEO, SMO etc) for promoting your brand.

Start with market research, so you can make a market strategy.

And you will be updated with customers thinking about their buying patterns.
You will also get information on the current market trend, and be updated on what your competitor does

Target your market where your product is needed or service, and customers are willing to pay for it.

Take a risk in business and create opportunities, to build your business strong.
