    There are many ways to promote your business on line but people overlook email marketing.

    1. In the US alone email users are
    expected to grow to 254.7 million.

    2. For every $1 spent on email marketing $44 is made in return.

    3. Consumers who purchase products through email spend 138% more than those that don’t receive email offers.

    4. 73% of millennials identify email as their preferred means of business communication.

    These mind blowing stats go on and on. This article gives you an idea about the benefits of email marketing for small business.

    It should definitely have a place in your overall marketing strategy.

    Don't overlook the stats of how many people actually open the emails, let alone click through.

    1. Creating Facebook Fan Page that share useful content around your product niche( And boost it for more like and share) , post your website link at blue button section
    2. Posting regularly at forums related to your product niche, build name and credibility
    3. Write articles related with your product niche and submit it to well know article directories such as ezine articles ( they have millions reader traffic every month). Put your business website link at the end of each article.

    It depends on your business type, target audience, your budget and goals. For instance, if your business is seasonal, you've just started and want prompt results, you should focus on PPC and social media. SEO, content and email marketing are something you should do in the background.
