5 Ways to Market Yourself for FREE!

LIFE IS SHORT. Only you have to live your life every day. You and I are living the lives we've built for ourselves. I've always been inspired to hustle and work hard - that’s what being an entrepreneur is all about! With that being said, when you're working to build a brand and turn a hobby into a full-time business, we don't have all the right answers. No one is an expert in every aspect of running a business. 

I took a leap and dove into my dream job, and Maebeck is here to help you do the same. We're experts in social media and marketing, so don't fret - we've got your back! Maebeck can help you take your business and turn it into the company you've been dreaming of! Here are some of our favorite tips and tricks from the insiders of the marketing industry! 

I know from my own experience that when you're first starting out, you look to brands and companies you love for inspiration. But what you don't always realize is that on some level, you end up comparing your business to theirs. On social media, everyone looks so put together, like they know exactly what they're doing, or you think they must have a lot of money to spend on marketing....but that is where you're WRONG! There are so many ways that you can market yourself with a ZERO DOLLAR marketing budget!  Check out some of our favorites below! 

0 1 . COLLABORATIONS
Make friends in your industry, partner up, and work together to grow your businesses. Feature one another on your social media accounts, collaborate with others on a photo shoot, or start a podcast to highlight other like-minded individuals.

0 2 . WORD OF MOUTH
Make sure EVERYONE in your tribe knows what you are up to, all about your business, and how you would be absolutely thrilled if they shared your brand with others. Don’t forget to give those people a thank-you gift to show your appreciation for spreading the word about you. 

0 3 . FACEBOOK GROUPS + INSTAGRAM
Make a Facebook group, Instagram, and Pinterest, and start sending out newsletters. You can only tell so many people about your business by word-of-mouth, so use social media to your benefit to reach more people! 

0 4 . PULLING FAVORS AND SWAPPING
Pull favors from friends, but also exchanging favors. Use your talents to serve, but also to SWAP! Figure out what you need, if you know someone who does it, and determine if you can exchange your services to help one another.

0 5 . GETTING FEATURED!
If you have not been featured already from a local newspaper, news channel, large blog, or even verbally on a podcast, then drop what you are doing and write down a list of places you want to get featured on and reach out!
