What's On Your Mind?
Q: What's one of the most important things I can do to market myself online?
 
A: Marketing online really isn't much different than marketing in a traditional atmosphere. Think about the way you market traditionally. You mail out postcards. You network. You make phone calls. You have drive by (walk by) traffic.

Online, your marketing skills must take on the same characteristics. Connect with other businesses that have complementary services. Find places to network online. Locate places to showcase your expertise. Marketing is all about connections; the more you connect, the greater your business will be.
