Many marketing strategists still believe that you need a large budget to strike it big, in consumer reach terms. $4 million will buy you a 30 second ad spot during the Super Bowl. Or for a little more bang for your buck you could plaster your company logo across a bus for a month or hire an oversized highway billboard begging to be recognized.
Startups don’t have the budget to go to these extremes, and let’s face it, do you remember what this morning's billboard on your way to work was promoting? It's time to ditch traditional marketing approaches.
