How much is your advertising budget?

8 like 1 dislike
Advertising your business for free is good, however with any business

it takes money to make money.

What is your monthly advertising budget?

If you don't have a budget, I recommend you figure out what your monthly

budget is and stick to it. You don't have to spend money that you can't

afford. Choose the best resources for your advertising

If you have any advertising resources to share that are low cost and

effective, please share.

Happy holidays

When I first started online, I didn't have an advertising budget. I generally don't use all the money I have allocated for advertising. However it is available to me if I see advertising that I want to try. One low cost source that I use is Listsurfing. I really like this site and it's low cost to join and advertise on. The clicks, conversions and CTR is great. There are a lot of benefits to joining the site. Dave I can send you the link on IBO, if you want it.
Thanks for your comment Terri. I have been a member of Listsurfing for quite awhile also and it has been very responsive when I have advertised there. I have also had good results from List Jumper and Adchiever. Happy holidays.

As for me, my best advertising is referrals. It is a time investment, yet it PAYS OFF BIG!

As far as a budget, It really depends on the project I am promoting.

 I agree Dave, it is important to have a plan and to always be working on TOP of MIND awareness.

Though it is clear from yours and Terri's comments about Listsurfing, that a recommend from the 2 of you is of huge value that cannot have a price tag put on it.

The amount I choose is normally dependent on the sales result I am getting from whatever I am promoting online. This can vary from $1 to $500 . I normally equate free organic traffic into the mix at times Dave

My budget is $500-1000...

No single number can provide a definitive answer regarding the average amount a small business should spend on marketing and advertising. How much you should allocate to such endeavors depends on a number of factors, including your goals, your projected sales and your disposable income.
