    Hi there! There is a lot you could do to promote your business. What type of business is it? Have you taken simple free steps yet? Here are some FREE things to consider:
    - Add your business to Google Places
    - Add your business to as many free business directories as possible (yahoo, google, yelp, etc.)
    - Start a facebook fanpage
    - Start tweeting using hashtags via twitter
    - Start blogging weekly hyperlinking text to your website
    - Get involved in forums just like this one

    If I knew what type of business you run I could probably give you better ideas. Hope this helps!!!
    - Contact companies or folks your business caters to and ask how to get added to their bid list

    Extremely hard to give advice without knowing what kind of business you have.

    It will be better if you can tell in more details about your business so that member can help to give more accurate answer or opinion

    What kind of business do you have?
    What do you currently have in place?

    Once you let us know this information, we could provide a more valuable solution for you.

    Create viral contents for your small business and your products. Content can be in forms of advertising images, videos or informational contents. Start with social media sites to share and spread your content until people get to see your content and visit your business itself.

    Here’s a big tip to help boost your business: if you don’t already have a website, get one. Having a website where you can direct customers is going to give your business legitimacy and professionalism. Everyone has a website, and in order to keep up with the competition, any start up business is going to need one as well.
    There are several avenues that you can take when considering how to go about getting a website. There’s hosting, blogs, site builders, employing a third party, and more. One way you might want to consider before anything else is looking into a site builder. They’re often affordable, easy-to-use, and most don’t require any knowledge of coding. You’re the designer, so you choose the colors, layout, theme, templates, and everything else.
    I know that Easy WebContent is one site builder that falls under all of the above and much more. Various add-ons and widgets can be utilized, and all without any sort of downloads or external software.
    Their system also supports an HTML editor, allowing a website owner to edit their existing domain without needing the designer to go in and do it.
    It’s all about searching for the right solution that will give your company the most professional and clean look, which I know that Easy Web Content can provide.

    Also look into promoting your business through social media such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc. They can be great tools and assets in marketing and advertising.
    Hope this helps!

    Well No one give you ideas without know which business you have.. Because according your business we tell you how you promote your business.. Otherwise going wrong... So much things is need to promote business... So Social media is really help you to promote your business...

    Always choose one high competitive keyword with excellent traffic. One with medium competitive keyword and one low competitive keyword. If you need only 2 keywords then choose high and low competitive keywords. If you have more keywords to target then creates more web pages on your websites to target multiple keywords strongly.

    If you can think of a freebie that people can use, you can do a refer-a-friend campaign, whereas, if someone refers a friend they get something in return or a discount. This could help you grow virally.

    I'd promote a small business by doing contests, calling into radio stations, putting banners up, putting fliers up, giving away pens, giving away t-shirts, etc.

    You should first determine and clearly define your target market. You also need to do a little analysis. Finally, venture inexpensive marketing avenues.
