A conversation I regularly have with business owners is how they can promote their business online, and while SEO and PPC are fantastic they come at a cost, so here are three simple ways to promote your business today for free.
- Google My Business (or Google Maps)
Google My Business formally known as Google Local Places, but more commonly known as Google Maps, allows you to place a free listing at the top of the local search results. This is a fantastic opportunity to get your website in front of potential local customers.
You can create your free listing at google.com/intl/en_uk/business/
2. Blog Post
Write a blog post like this one, think about what your potential clients are likely to search Google for and create a post that answers that question.
Google Trends is a great tool for finding out what people actually search for. Try it for yourself at https://trends.google.com/
3. Social Media
When was the last time you posted on Social Media? Why not do it now, share some information, ask a question, create a poll or join in one of the many daily hashtags. Take a look at some hashtags on the link below and get posting.
