    Hey David. Thanks for sharing this article. Writing your own content will certainly save you a lot of money. There are many good freelance writers out but it’s not cheap. Social media is free and you can promote your business and gets a lot of customers for free. My favorites are Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter. You also mentioned videos. From my own experience, the best way to create an SEO-friendly content is embedding your own youtube video within the article. You will get traffic from youtube and also help decrease your bounce rate.

    Great article ! When I started my business marketing and getting the word out was actually my biggest challenge. It doesn’t matter how good you are at what you do, if no one knows you are doing it

    I created a website and used some social media exposure and eventually Word of Mouth started to float my boat. If I had known some of the other strategies you listed at the time I could have become much more successful, much quicker.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for this wonderful post on marketing your business on budget, I normally create campaigns on social media to promote my business. I just learnt that creating videos is also a great alternative. You said it all time has past when people try reading a whole blog but my problem is how to get started especially which video editing program I can select from?

    • Bishop

      Bibian, thank you for your comment and kind words. Videos are great for rankings and people are tending to lean more on videos than a blog as you rightfully mention.

      You ca do a Google search and pick one of the service that fits your budget, but Animoto and Canva is two that i used in the past. Hope that answer your question.
