2) Communal Advertising
Marketing for a small business can be very expensive. It can cost you thousands before you start to see any sort of exposure. Contact non competitive small businesses in your area and agree to cross promote. Drop flyers in for their customers, add reciprocal websites links and mention each other on your social media platforms.
3) Use Website Builders
2019 is the year to get your website or online store up and running and we suggest using a website builder. We use Squarespace for our online expose. It allows you to build beautiful websites with little or no technical ability.
4) Volunteer to speak at Industry Events
If you consider yourself an expert in your field you could share your knowledge with others. This is a great way to get free exposure for your brand.
5) Avoid Full Time Office Space
If you run a retail business then this tip doesn't apply to you, however, most internet businesses can be run remotely. If you don’t work in retail you should try to stay mobile as long as possible. Signing a lease on a office space can be extremely expensive. There are lots of options for remote businesses in Ireland, from renting hot desks to renting out a private office.
When it comes to saving money there are lots of things you can do, but no matter what industry you are in, your business will always use some amount of electricity or gas to operate. Contact us today and find out how much your business could be saving in 2019 on energy costs.
