Never fear!! It’s possible to market your small town, community, small business, event, and whatever else you can think of with a small budget. As long as you’re willing to put in the time, rather than use up your budget, you can have a very successful small budget marketing program utilizing the tools that I have used for the past 25 years marketing small towns and destinations, a variety of small businesses, and countless local and regional events. You can do this even with NO budget.
