Suppose you’re about to launch a website for your small business, promotion or new product. You’ve spent some time networking with industry influencers, chosen some important keywords, and prepared a press release to be sent out tomorrow. Suppose you’ve spent almost all of your capital on this product, and you only have a few hundred dollars to move forward with for small business advertising.

1. Niche Advertising
2. Local Listings - i.e. Google, Yahoo & Bing Maps
3. Pay-Per-Click – i.e. Google Adwords
5. Social Bookmarking – i.e. StumbleUpon & Reddit
