You could promote your business online through your website or blog. It's a better way to find out people on what your company and services are all about. Make sure to have a good content that encourage them repeat visits in your website. Join in some forums or have an online chat method to showcase your business using social media websites. Also mind to spend time on email marketing. By this, you could build a good rapport to your potential customers.

You could market your business online as you will engage in some platforms such as Google Adwords, Bing Ads, 7Search, Facebook Advertising, Twitter Advertising etc.

Promotions can be done online either through paid methods as Google Advertising or slowly getting organic traffic. I think either would work but for organic traffic, you need to follow Social Media and promote their. Additionally, content marketing is going to be the best thing that will help you.

SEM is the best option than SEO, so if you are in online marketing better to apply search engine marketing techniques then better utilize the social media websites and Google adwords ads, these are the best pickers to promote your business according to current market trends.

Strategy First!
by mattcoco / March 24, 2016 8:10 AM PDT

I'd like to propose a solution that does not start with tactics. Develop a comprehensive marketing strategy first. Part of your strategy will be developing your marketing mix. By the time you get to the development of your marketing mix the tactics you use and could use will be based on your developed goals and objectives, audiences, USP, your businesses marketing abilities. Then and only then, does it make sense to ask for "ways" to promote your business online. Another way to look at it is, if you don't have any sort of guidelines to your marketing (the strategy) any tactic could be seen as viable. But not all tactics work for all business.

If you're interested in developing your strategy, and it doesn't take long to put together a basic one, that's what I do on my podcast and on my website.
I've created a template to help you get started as well.

Good luck!
