    I would say that word of mouth is the best free advertising you could ever get. If your product/service has uniqueness, creativity, good quality, and originality, you will succeed for sure. We started our business without spending any cent on any advertising, without even a website, just with a Facebook page, and after 2 weeks we had a constant flow of clients that doesn't stop for half a year of our existing business. Even though I graduated from an advertising school, I believe in the product/service. Better to spend free money you have on improving quality than advertising.

    Social media is very popular at the moment but i agree with Krystsina that word of mouth is by far the best free advertising you can get.

    Media advertising is good for you. You try to google and facebook advertising to pull access to your website

    If you are looking for cheap marketing resource to help put together articles, videos, designs, etc., try fiverr.com - I've used it a lot to help create content for our website :)

    Maybe you have, but the quality of the content you get from fiverr isn't very good. It might be grammatically correct but it tends not to be engaging, interesting or directed.

    As an aside, I tried to use your site and gave up. The tiny light grey font is almost impossible to read

    For my business word of mouth has proved to be the best form of free advertising. I run a digital lead generation services working form mostly SME's but most of my new customers are recruited through existing clients. Shows the power of doing a good job i hope!

    Why do so many people think "word of mouth" is advertising? "Word of mouth" is a recommendation and should be looked upon as such in your overall marketing strategy and not confused with advertising.

    A little pedantic Toby but i see your point its not paid for so it probably shouldn't be categorised as advertising

    I started reading this thread, thought the advice sounded outdated, then read the posting dates.

    Article marketing is dead, IMHO. You just get a lot of links on duplicate content from cr*ppy sites. Fiverr is great for things that can be churned out quickly using templates, like logos and videos. You won't get quality unique content on there.

    Fiver is a great place to source people who can write articles, web design, seo, plus provide lots of other services at very reasonable prices. Try there.

    No, don't use ffiver for that sort of thing. Unless you are quite happy to use the junk they give you.
