Small businesses need to up their game, not necessarily their budgets.
Can't agree with this more. (And thanks for all the thoughts and tips in that post). Most small businesses seem to have a lottttttt of room for improvement in a lot of things they do. Maybe it's where I live, but I'm always shocked at how many small businesses remain to stay in operation. The good ones find ways to be successful and expand if they choose. The rest stagnate or die off. And most that do deserve to. Very few dedicate serious effort to creative marketing and miss out on a lot of business because of this.
