If you are just starting out building an online business and you have a limited funds. There are ways that you can start online marketing on a budget.  These tips with show you how you can set up an online marketing business without spending too much money.

Build a Blog

If you don’t already have a blog then it’s time to build one.  You need a blog that is fresh and updated regularly with lots of up to date interesting content.  Valuable and relevant posts will attract your audience and help build a loyal following.  If you are not sure what to write then go to Google Trends and find out what is trending in your niche.

Conversational Marketing

Conversational marketing is getting involved in conversations on forums, blogs and social media.  Don’t always go in for the kill/sale but try and ad value to the conversations and direct people to useful posts or articles on your blog or website.

I’ve used conversational marketing for a while now and it can be tedious but you do get good results from interacting with potential prospects or buyers.

Some places I use conversation marketing are Twitter, Facebook Groups, Reddit and niche appropriate forums.


Being the second biggest search engine used setting up a YouTube channel can bring you a ton of free traffic to your website or offers.  Online marketing with YouTube is a must for any online strategy.

You can do reviews on products, information videos, customer testimonials, or even a weekly Vlog.  Have a look at what key influencers in your niche are doing and find out what is successful.

If you are an affiliate marketer you can make a really good living from doing reviews on products and creating a channel just based on latest product reviews.  This is called launch jacking.

Social Media

By linking all your online marketing together you can get momentum from all your efforts. Share your blogs and videos on Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram, LinkedIn and even Pinterest.  Be everywhere.  You have to go where your customers are!!  Your customers are not ALL going to be on Facebook.   By being on all these platforms you are opening yourself to bigger audiences.
