For those of us with a small budget or Face-to-Facebook

I post a lot of social media information for business, not-profit and economic development organizations, but the bottom line is communicating your organization’s marketing message and other essential business information to your customer. Using social media and technology can be a very cost effective way of marketing, but I also do not want to dismiss ‘legacy’ ways to communicate with our customer. This article from SCORE, “Advertising Ideas on a Small Budget” tells of some great low-tech ideas that still work and that we need to remember even when using websites, Facebook, Twitter, blogs, or other social media in business or economic development.
