Marketing is the primary way to sell your product or service and grow your business. At its core, marketing gets the word out. It builds your customer base by telling people how you can meet their needs. It also helps you establish a loyal following so you stay top of mind in between purchases. 

You’re already familiar with email marketing, of course. But a savvy business owner employs other marketing tools — a distinct logo, a strong website, good SEO tactics and more — to make his or her marketing as effective as possible.
