Free Marketing Ideas for Your Business
Thanks for stopping by MLM Tips to check out these free marketing ideas for your business!
Entrepreneurship is an everyday gig. Every entrepreneur (or at least those want to do well) needs to continually get the word out about their business and brand. The quickest, most obvious way to do this is with the classic paid marketing model. Advertising is as old as a form of marketing as cave art. But for many network marketers, paying to get the word out about their business just isn’t an option – yet! So today, just for you, I have put together a short list of MLM tips and free, creative/marketing ideas that truly work.
Free Marketing Ideas #1: Use your community!
Become known in your community. This does not mean that you throw a home party every night and continually call and invite your neighbors hoping that they will finally show up. This will just annoy the neighborhood and dub you the “one to avoid.”
Instead of punching a one-way ticket to the NFL (No Friends Club) do some good in your community by volunteering in different settings. By doing this you will have an opportunity to connect with other (really cool and good) people and of course the opportunity will come up to share what you do. Be willing to hand out business cards with your website on them. The key to this tip is to really connect with people – rather than making every visit or meeting about you and your business. Don’t be a one-note wonder. Serve others. Be real! Be you!
The rest of the marketing tips can be used online – and since the social networks are where everyone is these days online is a great place to take advantage of free marketing! When using these methods the best practice is to always provide value.
Free Marketing Ideas #2: Join online groups
Join online marketing groups. There are tons of groups on Facebook or forums that you can join that are suitable for your niche. Find a group where there is a lot of interaction and support and then participate! Ask questions, answer questions, provide value, connect with others and create opportunities to market who you are and what you do.
In network marketing there are a lot of groups, especially on Facebook, where the point is just to spam your business. The vast majority of those groups are a waste of space. You will have a harder time connecting with people in these groups. Try to find masterminds or other groups where your niche is at the forefront of conversation.
Free Marketing Ideas #3: Blog
If you don’t have a blog yet – make one. Also, if you don’t have a blog yet… why don’t you have a blog?!!
Blogs are an excellent way to provide value to others and to let people know who you are and what you do. Be consistent with your blog posts and do your keyword research. Make sure you have an opt-in form on your blog. This way you will can stay connected through email to your blog visitors.

Free Marketing Ideas #4: Interact with other blogs
Leaving thoughtful comments on other authority blogs within your niche will create a backlink to your own blog or website. This is a great way to get your blog noticed by search engines like Google and others who read the comments of the authority blog.
Just make sure you are not just spamming your website – this is a sure way to NOT get your comment approved. Your goal is to provide value through your comment – to actually add something to the conversation - and make sure to include your URL in the designated place.
Free Marketing Ideas #5: Video
YouTube is the third most visited site online and the second most used search engine (only behind Google) and the really cool thing about YouTube is that uploading videos is completely FREE! If you are not using video to market who you are and what you do then you need to start – today! It really is the BEST way to brand yourself and really attract the right kind of people to you. Video marketing has been THE strategy that Eric and I have used to turn our business around and really make a name for ourselves.
