3 Free Small Business Digital Marketing Services

If you're marketing your business on a budget, check out three free digital services that any small business can learn from

People frequently think that the only form of digital marketing services you can find for a small business isn't free. But there are several free concepts you can utilize for your business, which you can use. We build a simple infographic to help explain the basics of digital marketing.

Work on Boosting Your Domain Authority

A service related to SEO and SEM writing, the domain authority (DA) of a business is what Google looks at to determine how healthy your website's information is. A higher domain authority means that you have some inbound links from trustworthy sites, and the information on your site is reliable as well. Ahrefs has a good means of checking your site's domain authority, as well as information about how to boost it yourself.

DA is key when setting your keyword strategy. A DA of under 30 should only be targeting with monthly searches less than 100 and target keyword phrases of 5 words. At a DA of 50, it's search volume of under a 1,000, and phrase length of 4. Most small businesses fall within this range. If you don't know your DA, you can waste a lot of time and money trying to rank for keywords out of your reach.

Take Advantage of Google's Free Digital Services When Marketing Your Small Business

Google Business offers some free services and programs that you can use for your small business digital marketing. Google Analytics, Google Search Console, Google My Business are the three most common and are free to use for small business owners. Dave Chaffey at Digital Insights wrote about free marketing services as well, including information about the Google programs you might want to use.
