Web marketing tools for small businesses

Small business owners don’t have the marketing budget of big corporations but that doesn’t mean that you should skip marketing research, especially in this day and age when search engines, like Google, Yahoo and Bing, provide us with invaluable research tools and most of them are absolutely free.

Today we are going to concentrate on 3 very powerful tools to help you deeply understand your audience.

 

Google Keyword Planner – https://adwords.google.com/KeywordPlanner

This is Google’s latest tool and it replaces Google Keyword Tool. You can check your ideas and see what people are actually searching for as well as how many searches there are per month. (You can even see how much the other market players are already paying to advertise).
Think for one second about how you use search engines like Google or Yahoo. You probably enter some words. Those are called keywords, even if they are “phrases”.
Knowing what people google the most in your field of expertise will give you invaluable insights about what they are looking for and what they are buying.

 

 Alexa – http://www.alexa.com/

  • how popular a website is;

  • where the visitors go next;
  • what sites link to this website;
  • what sites are related to this website;
  • and more!
