Augusta, GA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/27/2006 -- Choosing effective marketing techniques on a tight budget is a challenge for any small business. In “Grow Your Business with Creative Marketing” (available at http://www.EmphasisOnSuccess.com), Accent editor Evy Williams offers some real-world advice about reaching potential customers that won’t break the bank. Based on her personal experience, Williams advocates inventive, inexpensive strategies like networking and getting involved with industry organizations as the best ways to get clients.
“I can’t stress enough how important it is to continuously market your services. Even if you have enough work right now, what about the future? What about growth? We need to address the future needs of our businesses as well,” notes Williams, owner of Brochures by Design.com (http://www.BrochuresByDesign.com), a virtual firm specializing in professional writing services, desktop publishing and multimedia presentations. “Be creative when marketing your business. Step outside your comfort zone to do something a little different. I know it’s worked for me.”
