  2. 2. Practical Internet Marketing For Small Business: 25 Ideas That Work Part 1I started to put my thoughts down on this and realised how much I could write! so rather than lose theimpact I decided to split this up over five days. Here is the first 5 ideas that will work for anyone thatdecides to use them!Internet marketing for small business is entering a huge growth phase. No surprise really with 90 billionsearches a month now on Google, and over 80% of consumers or possible clients searching for a provideronline.The thing is though, many small business owners are in awe of the internet. Not really knowing how toleverage its possibilities and capabilities. No wonder really. Everyday we hear stories of miscommunication and small business owners being bamboozled with jargon. So as a starter here are 5 of 25things to consider and think about as you plan you online domination of your local market!1. Have an Online PresenceThis might sound logical! Yet it is not just about a flash website. Consider using a blog. They are easy tomanage, generally less expensive and can be managed by you. There are also lots of other things you canuse and tap into that help enormously for little in the way of costs. By the way this site is a blog!2. Have a StrategyEverything starts with a plan. Don’t just throw up your site without any thought. Think about what youwant to achieve. All successful businesses have a strategy. Being successful online is no different. Youneed to know what your goals are, and what you want to achieve. 2 08452570073 email:

  4. 4. StudyWe could not afford the high prices we were quoted for a website let alone how to promote it, so wedecided to learn ourselves. And we did. As the saying goes trust me if I can learn anyone can!5. Get a MentorThis might be a new concept to people and yet having a mentor is invaluable to your business growth.The Merriam-Webster Webster Dictionary defines a mentor as “a trusted counsellor or guide.”I would add something else to that, from my own experience.
