Of course, this may be a tall order to make if you are on a shoestring budget. Well, well, this could explain the reason why most small businesses sight marketing budget as the greatest obstacle in their marketing efforts. Sadly, you need to have a budget for marketing if you are to create enough noise around your brand. Here are some tried and tested marketing ideas when you are on a shoestring budget.
You can always take part in industry awards and competitions as a way of creating awareness around your existence. From the awards and competition, you may get recognition, cash reward or an online badge for your website. Of course, such awards opens you up to more credibility in the eyes of your customers.

While at it, how about you repurpose old content to come up with something interesting and informative for your online followers? The self publishing cost for paperback and ebooks may seem high at the start, but the price is always worth it especially from the cash you will make from the sales.
