The Kansas City Business Journal recently featured Proventus Consulting as an agency that “helps companies find low- and no-cost ways to market their brand and business” in an article aimed at providing businesses tips on marketing their business on a budget.
The article, titled “No big marketing budget? Use your time, talent,” helps companies think of business development in terms of an investment of time rather than money in instances where large marketing budgets simply do not exist.
In the article, Proventus suggests three areas in which businesses ranging from law firms to professional services startups can make significant gains in marketing their companies, including thought leadership, online marketing and third party endorsements.
These techniques can be a great way of increasing visibility, strengthening brands and reputations, and demonstrating expertise with the ultimate goal of driving business development for a company.
