23 Mar 3 Options for Affordable Digital Marketing Help
Affordable digital marketing options can seem few and far between, whether you’re first starting a business or you’ve been around for a few years. If it seems like marketing support costs you more money than you’re making and you’re having trouble finding the answers you need online, you’re in the right place. Digital marketing isn’t always cheap, but it also doesn’t have to break the bank. In this blog post, we talk about three resources you can use to get affordable digital marketing help for your business.
The first place people typically turn for answers is a quick Google search. Google processes over 3.5 billion searches per day, and with each of those 3.5 billion searches, there’s likely to be at least one page of results. Even if there’s only one page of search results (very likely there are hundreds), that’s a lot of content to sort through to find the answers you’re looking for.
Google is free, so it’s obviously an easy option to utilize and a good starting point for most queries. The downside is that there’s not a lot of quality control for which articles make it to the top of the SERP, or search engine results page.
For example, have you ever tried searching for a local restaurant by typing “restaurant,” and then been served 14 paid advertisements on top of limitless results? All of these Google search results will give you very different information on restaurants, and it may not be the information you’re looking for based on your interests and location. After your initial search, you likely add more words to clarify exactly what you’re looking for, like “best local restaurants near me” or “Thai food restaurant San Diego.” Eventually, you narrow the search results down and find the information you’re looking for, but it can take some time.
This same example applies to digital marketing. Maybe you have a question on how to choose an email marketing software for your business. The search term “email marketing” won’t get you too far, and you’ll end up reading a lot of opinions from strangers with different business needs. If you’re interested in internet rabbit holes, this can be fun. But if you’re a busy entrepreneur with a growing to-do list, it’s not ideal.
Pro: The most affordable digital marketing option.
Con: Can be difficult to navigate without extensive research.
In terms of affordable digital marketing, Hubspot is another great option. Like Google, there’s a lot of content. But unlike Google, Hubspot’s content library is specifically tailored to help marketing professionals. Hubspot’s primary service offering is a CRM tool, but they also offer supplementary marketing education content and free certifications.
If you’re looking to do a deep dive into digital marketing for DIY in your own business, Hubspot is a perfect place to start. That being said, Hubspot may not take you all the way. You’ll get content more directly related to your question than a blanket Google search, but because Hubspot serves a wide audience, your question will get a broad answer.
Pro: Pre-filtered digital marketing content.
Con: Not always personalized enough to get you the answers you need.
