1. Second Hand Stores
People are less inclined to spend the money to buy new at the moment for products like baby clothes which are soon outgrown and need to be swapped frequently. Search and browse through second hand stores for inexpensive and bargain items such as furnitures. Refurnish and reuse is a great way to save cost. Besides, you have furnitures that stands out from the rest in an in creative way.

2. Social Media Consultants

You could save up by relying on the social media as your consultants to help market your brand to your audience worldwide. It is important for a company to identify the social outlet that is going to give you the best return on your time and investment.

There is no need to spend thousands of dollars on a business logo design. The new way is through the internet-based logo design services.

This package specifically targets startup businesses who are looking to have a business logo done affordably within a few days time. For only a few hundred dollars or less, you can own a well designed logo that fits your business image.

4. Build a website on your own
If you can't afford to have someone custom-design your website, put your site up for less than $100 using tools such as WordPress and Blogspot that provide templates and tools that makes it easy to create a basic website of your own.

Self-made videos
Put videos to present your product or service on YouTube or any other video-sharing sites to help promote and spread your brand. Create video tutorial to educate your customers, or show to potential buyers how your products work. Well produced web videos can drive a lot of traffic which in turn build customers, and awareness of your brand.

6. Networking
Learn how to cultivate relationships and give referrals to others. Master the art of networking. Network with others who are doing the same type of work with you. Let them know your existence.

7. Local Marketing
Even if you are trying to reach the global market, your local area offers opportunities to build a buzz about what you do. Use word of mouth in your local area. Your brand would be known in the form of recommendation from a friend or family members.
