Time management is a very difficult task.
Trying to figure out how much time to put
into each part of your marketing is very
hard and even more so for those of you
just starting out.
In my last article "Educate Your Way to
Success", we discussed how difficult it
is to succeed without educating yourself.

Today, we are going to take a look at
how important advertising is for your
business and how much time you should
be spending to give you the greatest
chance at success.
The need to advertise will never cease
but once you have been in business for

very limited budget, so we will look at
some of the less costly ways to advertise.
