[Social Media] Effective Online Marketing Requires Time
Limited social media posting. It’s no secret that the smaller your budget the more time you’re going to have to give your online marketing to work.

That doesn’t mean you should give up. Small businesses are at no more a disadvantage online than they’ve ever been at anything else. You have a smaller budget, but that just means you have to get creative.
