New Series: Marketing Tips for Small Businesses

(by Priyank Panthari)

The need for understanding the importance and scope of marketing is central to the functioning of business organisations, irrespective of their size, geographical location or industry type. But in the case of small scale or mid-sized enterprises where risks run high and there is literally no room for mistakes, marketing strategies are of paramount importance. Unfortunately the market intelligence and research usually comes with a hefty 'price tag' and might be well beyond the reach of small businesses and start-ups.


Based on this background, Yalwa will explain the marketing basics in a simplified and lucid manner which would eventually equip you with better knowledge while making important business decisions. Let Yalwa be your 'lighthouse' of marketing knowledge in turbulent high seas of business markets!

With a sound understanding of the laws of marketing and business, one can minimise risks and maximize profits, and in the process achieve desired business goals. Marketing knowledge ensures that we understand our products or services better and know our target markets better. It helps us to decide what should be the optimal pricing strategy and which media channels we should employ.
The list of benefits can be endless. In a nutshell, it can be said that with the right marketing knowledge, you can take care of the entire range of your business operations.

Thank you, for such a clear and comprehensive post. Since I’ve been reading you, I feel I have begun to understand more about this topic. Please keep writing. I just hope people are listening to you and reading you.

Hi Priyank,

Interesting article. But I think marketing is only ment for big businesses. They have millions to spent for TV commercials and other promotion mediums. I own a backery in a small town. Recently another backery opened and is gaining some of my customers. If it continues like this I might have to close my business. That's why I am really looking for some good advice. Could you help me with that?

Regards,
