For small business owners, to market smarter and propel your business growth is somehow overwhelming. In this article, I will identify brilliant and inexpensive marketing ideas for small business owners and explain how Virtual Assistants play a vital part into this.

If you’re a small business or an emerging startup, you don’t have enough resources to spend on expensive advertising like what your bigger competitors can. To compete on the same level but with a smaller budget and limited time, to market smarter and propel your business growth is somehow overwhelming.

Why Concrete Marketing Ideas For Small Business Owners And Virtual Assistants Important?

Because this problem about promoting a business also challenges the work at home professionals to sustain their business.

Take it from me…I’ve experienced the same dilemma on my own business and career.

I didn’t have money (way back 2010) to pay to advertise my business and to compete with my competitors.

When I was just starting out, it was a complete struggle. I struggled so much on:

  1. How to get myself out and make myself stand out amongst many other VAs
  2. Get high-ticket clients who will stick around
  3. Earn me recurring revenue
  4. Increase income
  5. Sustain my VA business

And I had these seemingly unending questions like:

  • How do I start marketing my business?
  • How is the best way to advertise my business?
  • How do I promote my business?
  • Blah blah blah!

I knew, there was so much information on the internet, but I can’t move forward.
