Best Practices: How to Market Your Small Business Consistently When You Have NO Time

Guest Author: 
You know you need to market consistently. You have the best intentions of doing so. But you find yourself constantly distracted by the phone ringing, email piling up, invoices to send, clients to help, voice mails to return and the paper that is growing out of your desk.

What's a busy guy or gal to do?

Here are 5 ways you can market your business consistently when you have NO time:

1. Start your day with a marketing activity before anything else. Most folks I know start their day checking their email, which is a guaranteed productivity killer. Making the simple shift of giving attention to business development BEFORE you get sucked into meeting other people's demands, allows you to start your day focused on growth. Whether it's 15 minutes, 30 minutes or an hour, dedicate the first part of EVERY workday to a specific, goal-focused marketing activity and watch how new opportunities begin to unfold.
