Seth Godin On Small Business Marketing


Often, small business owners focus on the wrong things. They want a website – want to pay as little as possible – and want to not think critically about how they’ll use the website once it’s finished. They want to buy leads. They want a quick answer to where they should spend their advertising money. They forget that good marketing isn’t an expense. It’s an investment. However bad marketing is an expense that will never return the desired results.

Here’s what small business owners can learn from Seth Godin:
