More Small Businesses Plan to Grow their Business through Internet and Social Media Marketing in 2010

According to a May 2010 study by eMarketer small businesses are optimistic about coming out of the recession and looking to boost marketing budgets, especially online. Businesses realize that a strategic Internet marketing plan is a powerful and cost-effective way to increase customer loyalty, brand credibility and new customers. Social media is getting the most increased attention since last year. More than 46% of small businesses plan to upgrade their web sites, email newsletter and overall online presence with more than 36% saying they plan to use social media to do it.

In support of small and medium businesses, I’ve updated my book Low Budget Online Marketing for Small Business. And to celebrate the upcoming 3rd edition, I’m accepting 2-3 small to midsize business clients to market this summer. Read on for details:
