    Think of doing some paid advertisement, not spending too much, but getting enough to make noise in your niche.

    I think it would be easy to waste a lot of time if you don't target your efforts well. Some people just plaster their business on every site available but it would be far more efficient to pay attention to where a business' target audience hang outs and concentrate on those platforms.

    I have seen people throw their marketing efforts solely on FB but what they're promoting just doesn't fit well there, especially with the groups they belong to. Just an example. A big platform doesn't automatically mean big results. It would serve a business well to do their due diligence and audience profiling. Is it better to promote on local listings, i.e. Yelp and such? Or is global more appropriate? I think that's a good research starting point.

    That was my long-winded way of saying the same thing the article author did :) :

    "Just make sure you focus on those most relevant to your business. It’s easy to waste time and money on efforts that don’t produce results."


    All that said, I love the list. I think it's easy for a small business to overlook sites like MapQuest, D&B, etc. Those don't immediately come to mind when sitting down to plan a marketing strategy.
