You can approach small business marketing in the same manner. Experiment with different marketing and advertising strategies. Vary your message, your media outlet, your offers, the frequency.

One benefit a small business has – Agility. You can add, remove, change, update and experiment quicker and easier than large corporations. Don’t be afraid to experiment with new ideas or a different approach. Work to create that personality for your business... even if that means being that business owner with the “crazy haircut.”
