Marketing on a budget: Yes, it can be done

AFPnewIt’s tough for businesses to get their messages to stand out with so much marketing going on around us. TV, radio, newspapers, the Internet, smartphones, social media: we’re literally surrounded by marketing messages every second of every day.

Big business, even, can struggle in this environment, but we don’t feel sorry for big business, with the resources they can bring to the fight.

Small business is our focus at Augusta Free Press. We’re a small business ourselves, and we have dozens of small business clients trying to figure out how to use marketing budgets much smaller than Coca-Cola and Walmart and the rest to get their messages to customers and clients.

The good news is, it can be done. You just have to be smarter than the big guys.

Our Marketing on a Budget class offers tips on how to smarten up your marketing approach.

Topics include:

  • Developing and getting attention to good content for your website.
  • How to use Facebook, Twitter and other social media to make your business go viral
  • Develop and build a newsletter list to touch base with customers and clients in their email inbox
  • How to write and disseminate PR through the local media to get attention to your business


Class Schedule: Thursday, July 9, noon-1 p.m.

Augusta Free Press will cover these topics in depth in our Marketing on a Budget class.

Classes are offered at Panera Bread in Waynesboro.
