    Hi, I agree with all the points you have mentioned and yes, there may be more additions to the points. However, when you say that companies need not spend a dime for these marketing strategies, I would just add one point. To implement these strategies, you need an SEO or digital marketing expert and also a brilliant content developer, and the company needs to hire the required resources. You cannot expect a business owner to be well-versed in all of the mentioned points.

    Just something that I felt.

    It depends a lot on the business. A local window-cleaner may well get away with just a van and some business cards. A local butcher may get all his trade from referrals.

    I sell plugins. I don't do any marketing at all. I publish the plugins on the WP repository and run a support site. That's it, nothing more. This is enough to bring me a lot of highly targeted clients.

    Nice post! I agree with all your points. I think one of the most important things in online marketing is having your site or account search engine optimized and this is mostly neglected by beginners.

    You are absolutely right that a business need above things to get broad exposure and establish as a Brand.
    These all are continuous process which takes time to give you a result.
    Apart from above activities one more crucial things that you have missed is Business review.
    Now a days a positive business review is a major thing that if you want to get a lead because a bad review can result with loss of potential customer of your business.
    So never forget about review management.

    No they don't. When I buy screws online I don't care about the brand. And if you are a local builder you don't need broad exposure.

    Yeah, you are right there is no need to go through review while buying screws either online or offline.
