15 Different Ways to Market Your Stuff

Peter Drucker said, “Business has only two functions — marketing and innovation.”

The following list can be used to act as starting points and ideas for

  • Marketing Videos
  • Blog Posts
  • e-Books
  • Brochure Material
  • Sales Material
  • Podcasts
  • Infographics
  • Webinars
  • Any other marketing messages you can imagine

One of the toughest things to do when creating this material is to know where to start.  I will use this list that I have compiled to act as one point to start.  I will then combine it with an area of focus that interests my target audience.
