Great article and great ideas. Just to add to point 11 and to Abdul and Marjorie's comments, you may also wish to submit to the yellow pages sites (there are a bunch of them like yp.com, dexknows.com, etc.). And look for new sites as there are always more popping up. There's manta.com, and a brand new one http://localtoe.com/ which allows you to use images and links back to your website in the listings.

Super list. Really pleased you included business directory listings - I think a lot of businesses get facebook accounts and assume "that's it!" but there's SO many free online resources. Case and point: http://www.directorybug.com/top100/ has 100 free directories. If you have the time to list your business, why would you not...?

Your post is amazing, but why don’t you elaborate more about Google Adwords Coupon codes in the introduction of Google Adwords. As I come to know that Google Adwords are distributed for free from some kind FreeVouch.com sites. I think this will make your marketing almost free and worthwhile.

Apart from them On hold messaging is also one of very effective marketing tool for any kind of business.80% of all call to our business are placed on hold or transfers to the staff. The draw a negative impact of your business on custmour.That time you have opportunity to promote your services, up-sell you’re other products and can notify your clients about the new changes in your business. That will definitely give a boost to your business progress!!!.

Hello! I am in the process of starting my own business. I previously did market research for Fortune 500 companies, and I have an MBA.
My business aims to help small business owners improve their marketing and consumer understanding, but always with the end goal of boosting sales.
I have put together a very short questionnaire to get a better idea about my client base. If you have 5 minutes (really, it’s super short), I would appreciate your input.

Some internet marketing methods that will save an internet Business are:
A business owner does not have to be techie to be able to design their website. By learning how to manipulate web design templates; website designing becomes easy. Oftentimes, web design templates or custom made layouts are available for businesses to use.
Monitoring a website's visibility by using tools such as search engine position trackers may be used to see a business’s website's standing.

Excellent list. My favorite is video; specifically youtube marketing because of the power of youtube to target prospective customers, engage and build relationship with customers. Some youtube stats:
Youtube is the top 3 website in the world
More than 1 billion unique visits
Over 6 billion hours of video are watched
100 hours of video are uploaded
70% of traffic comes from outside the US
Localized in 56 countries nd 61 languages

You have provided a good list with some major players. Can I be bold and also suggest three more places to advertise local business for free. They are covering businesses such as lawyers, restaurants, cafes and hotels, as well as one man / woman comapnies.
www.businessrays.com covering almost all of the cities and small towns in USA.
www.classifiedny.com is for New York State.
www.olca.co.uk is for local businesses in UK.

Thank you for your comment. Every business is different but if I had to pick 5 items that every small business must do to market effectively, it will be as follows:
1. A good conversion optimised website which is different to a visually appealing one
2. Ongoing social media strategy
3. Maintaining an active Blog
4. Content marketing - Here you could repurpose a lot of your existing content including blog posts
5. Incentivized email list building
Above have got to be my top 5 strategies.

Thanks Kay for writing such an informative article. I am a believer that all of these items are key to growing a small business, but even the items you listed above take time and money.You list 18 items to consider in the strategic plan, out of those 18 what would be your top 5 reccomendations if that was all small business could afford to produce?
All the best,
