Small Business Owners and Marketing

There are four main parts for small business owners to consider when it comes to marketing. The mindset means that small business owners accept that marketing is as important as the product or service. The tools and tactics need to be understood and learned. Budgets need to accommodate marketing, tools, tactics, and the right people. Finding the right people starts with the small business owner knowing understanding marketing inside and out.
