If you are on a tight budget, yet want to get somewhere with internet marketing then I have the strategies for you. Where most people fail in internet marketing is they don’t do the necessary steps, simply because they don’t have money. Money changes just about everything and that is why I want to help you save as much of it as you possibly can.

One thing that you must keep in mind when doing internet marketing is there are many free ways to make a living; however, they normally take longer. The 3 strategies that I am going to talk to you about are actually free, but you can hire somebody to take on this project for you and it actually doesn’t cost a whole lot.

3 Affordable Internet Marketing Strategies

YouTube – YouTube has been around for quite some time and many internet marketers are still not using it the way they should be. If you don’t have a YouTube account that you can post videos on, then you are missing out on a lot of traffic and potential money. What I suggest is that you create a quick 2 minute video of yourself talking about what your channel is going to be about. Once you have done that you will need to start getting people to like your video. This is where you will want to use a blog or guest post because then you will have a constant flow of visitors going through your content into your videos. I know this might sound a little difficult at first but once you get the hang of it you will see that it is fairly easy to use.

Facebook – Facebook is one of the biggest websites in the world today and it doesn’t look like that is going to change any time soon. The fact that Facebook has more than 1 billion members is a great reason to use it. What you need to do in order to have success with Facebook is to create your own page, comment on other people’s pages, post photos, run a very minimal ad, and also get people to like your page. By doing all of this you will see that your fans keep increasing and at the same time so is your exposure.

Content Marketing – One of the strategies that I have been using for quite some time now is content marketing. Content marketing consists of marketing through channels such as article marketing, guest posts, and blogging. The reason I have been using content marketing for so long is simply because it works. Most people don’t like this strategy because it requires a lot of writing. Now, this is where content marketing is affordable and not just free. If you don’t have the time to write a bunch of articles, then all you need to do is find somebody that will write for you. I have done this a few times and I know many other internet marketers who have done this before and posted their purchased articles on article directories and as guest posts. My only recommendation is that you make sure the person you are hiring is actually good at writing and are not just pulling paragraphs from other pieces online.

All three of these work great when done right. That is why I highly recommend you experiment with each one to see which one works better for you and by how much. For many people, Facebook isn’t the most efficient use of time; however, they enjoy it so they keep using it. Do yourself a favor and figure out what works the best and stop the other two for a small amount of time. I guarantee that you will see a big difference very soon.

    Content marketing is awesome. We’ve definitely seen improvements with Whitepapers, PDF reports, infographics, and guest posts. And it just costs the time to create all of them.

  • They all certainly work, although I have my doubts about Facebook for B2B marketing. I have outsourced content development such as articles writing and have had my problems, you have to be careful to stipulate the criteria very carefully and use copyscape.com to check it is original.

  • Good Idea. For businesses, expanding is easy by just engaging in some of those social media trends right now. If you want to go viral then invest in a video. There are lots of available yet resources that we can use but it depends on us on how to be resourceful.
