Inexpensive Marketing Ideas for Small Business

best new small business ideas to startHave you caught the entrepreneur bug and are wanting to start your own small business?

You’ve heard stories of people that have struck it rich by going out on their own and working for themselves.

The thoughts and dreams of running your own business can be intoxicating.

It’s funny that growing up,I never really thought about starting my own business; not as a child,not in high school,not even in college,and frankly,I didn’t think much about it after starting my career.

When I finally got the opportunity and saw what it really meant,starting my own small business has been one of the best ideas I’ve ever had.

If you’re looking to start your own small business,here are some of the best new small business ideas to kick around.

1. Financial planner

How could I write a blog post about the best small business ideas and not include my profession? Some of the perks of becoming a financial planner are that you control your own hours,you work with the people you want to work with,and the pay can be very good.

I don’t want to make it sound,though,that to become a financial planner is easy breezy because it does take a lot of work. It takes a long time,sometimes several years,to build up a client base and getting hired is often times tough,especially if you don’t have a financial background.

Think you have what it takes to my job? Here’s what you have to do to become a successful financial advisor.

There are independent companies like Primerica and World Financial Group that do allow for you to get into the industry,but oftentimes they’ll start you off with you getting your insurance license first.best new business opportunitiesStill,for an awesome profession,it is a nice way to get your foot in the door.

2. Insurance agent

For some people,the job description selling insurance is not that appealing,but the fact of the matter is it pays very well. Whether you’re a pure life insurance agent or a property and casualty,insurance agents can make very good money.

To get licensed,you just have to take some basic tests that will cost you a couple hundred bucks,including studying materials and the actual testing costs. To become an independent life insurance agent,is really easy now days as there are many independent brokerages that you can connect with.

Getting approved for property and casualty can be tough,especially depending on your geographic location. I’m in the process of adding an insurance division to my financial planning practice,and as of now,we’ve had a few obstacles in getting approved by any carriers for the P&C side.

Nonetheless,if you think you like insurance and you want to help people,it’s definitely a good profession,definitely a good small business idea that you can pursue.

3. Freelance writer

Even though I have a blog and you’re currently reading one of my blog posts,the irony to that is that I hate to write. Mostly because it’s not a natural gift and it takes a lot of time and energy and a lot of extra brain juice to crank out a good post; but if you’re able to knock out solid articles,in your spare time,this freelance writing might be right for you.

Inexpensive Marketing

I'm trying to think of inexpensive ways to market my tax preparation business outside of my hometown city. People don't like changing accountants unless they are really unhappy. Any ideas for a small-town business to expand it's advertising.
I'm not a chain preparation service. I've created this on my own. Thank you in advance.

Real Estate Ideas?

I own a real estate brokerage in a small town. Between people not moving as much in the winter, market conditions, and my firm being fairly new, I don't have much at all going on.
I was wondering if anyone had ideas on how I could boost business. Maybe some kind of inexpensive marketing, or adding some other services, I really don't know. Febuary will be my firms 2 year mark, but I spent my 1st year working from home so that I could be home with my baby.
I don't have any agents working for my firm, I had agent who was with me for about a year, mostly while I was still in my house, but she quit b/c she has a full time job and wasn't really making any $

If you have an SBA office there,

And if they work like ours does, they offer some extraordinary and really fun evening seminars, many of which are free. You can do more networking and get lots of marketing and business presentation ideas there.
They also offer free online classes. To get access, you just fill out an on-screen form (they never spam me), and then you're in.
SCORE works through them-great resource. SBA can also help women in business.
