    You can use Facebook and Twitter. Also, forums are a good way to promote our business. Email marketing and blog posting will bring you many customers too.

    If you want to advertise a local company online, local directories are the ideal answer, and if you want to promote a global business online, there are many options available. You must first choose your plan before beginning to execute it.

    Generally speaking, the best way to promote small business online are social media and influencers in social media. This is the cheapest and most effective option

    In entirely depends on the type of business to be honest. Social media may be the best for certain niches while paid ad campaigns may be better for others.

    Regardless of the type of marketing you use, it is always a good idea to come up with a long term SEO plan for your business, right from the start. SEO is a long term game and the quicker you get started and working at your rankings, the better. You will thank yourself for putting in the time and effort when you see the rankings paying off.

    Depending on your target audience, you can go for various social media platforms. Facebook looks extremely promising though.
    Apart from that, you can focus on email marketing and content marketing. A good marketing strategy will have a well-thought mix of all these.

    First you create ecommerce webpage platform to expose your website. Add good terms and conditions to your site, product descriptions, offers, speed of the page. Then expose your brand on social media channels like Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook by creating the individual pages on the media channels.

    That totally depends on your product and your target audience.

    For example, if you are selling heart pacemakers to doctors, I seriously doubt your online efforts will generate many sales.

    Likewise, if you are selling toe-nail clippers to chickens, robins, and other birds, you are expecting those fowl to be able to read and understand your marketing message. Good luck with that.
