If you have been thinking of disposing of your old grand piano and couldn’t find anyone in the neighborhood who knew how to use it, the next thing you might want to do is to put it up for sale or auction at one of the superstores on the internet where both options are possible. In fact, this resort is ideal for almost anything you have in the house that you want to dispose of but can’t rightfully throw out with the rest of your garbage.
The internet is the place where we discover answers to questions and solutions to problems. We also find tools for small business marketing ventures that can find buyers from halfway around the world, willing to collect our junk.
There is a place for small business marketing efforts on the web
If you sell items in small quantities, it won’t be practical to pay for domain and hosting services for your business. There are many established and reputable e-stores that will host your products on their virtual store shelves for as long as you want. In most of these establishments, any fees that you have to pay for making use of their bandwidth are reasonable, much less than what you would spend to maintain your own domain and hosting provider.
You can advertise the products that you have on display
Using other internet marketing techniques, you can also lead people to the landing page of your products in the e-store. For instance, you might want to join forums where that type of commodity is the topic of discussion. There are bound to be members of that forum who will want a peek at your item. So post a message with an accompanying link to your landing page. Note: This is possible if the forum management does not forbid advertising on their site.
Small business marketing using article submission sites
If you are a talented writer, you might try submitting an article about your item to two or three article submission sites. Provide a link to the landing page at the bottom of the article or in your bio box. People who are interested in your item will only need to follow that link to see the item.
Small business marketing using blog and forum comments
You may also use commenting in forums and blogs to announce the products you are selling. It is possible to provide a link to your landing page simply by typing its url in the username text box of the comment (instead of your real name). However, you have to exercise finesse in doing this technique. At least make sure that you choose the appropriate site to advertise on and that your comments are meaningful to the original post.
