  3. 3. E-Marketing For Small Business Key E-Marketing Strategies ● Define your goal: Expertise vs. Brand (Authenticity vs. Exposure) ● Develop buyer personas. Think like your customers. ● Results don't happen overnight. Be patient, have long term goals, but stay agile. ● If you don't have time, consider outsourcing some of the work. (VAs are great.) ● Develop an editorial calendar to help manage your schedule. ● Make appropriate technology choices. ● Don't hire your friend's cousin's neighbor's teenage son who “knows” Internet marketing because he spends all day on Facebook. ● Have fun! 3 © 2010 Avarra Solutions, LLC | 10908 Courthouse Rd. #102-236, Fredericksburg, VA 22408 | 540.645.6910
