Press release from: Accent News Group

In the February 2006 issue of Accent, Evy Williams of the Accent News Group explains that marketing doesn’t have to be expensive to reach the right markets, but it does need to be creative.

Choosing effective marketing techniques on a tight budget is a challenge for any small business. In “Grow Your Business with Creative Marketing” (available at ), Accent editor Evy Williams offers some real-world advice about reaching potential customers that won’t break the bank. Based on her personal experience, Williams advocates inventive, inexpensive strategies like networking and getting involved with industry organizations as the best ways to get clients.

“I can’t stress enough how important it is to continuously market your services. Even if you have enough work right now, what about the future? What about growth? We need to address the future needs of our businesses as well,” notes Williams, owner of Brochures by ( ), a virtual firm specializing in professional writing services, desktop publishing and multimedia presentations. “Be creative when marketing your business. Step outside your comfort zone to do something a little different. I know it’s worked for me.”

Marketing is the focus of Accent’s entire February 2006 edition. Readers will also find articles on:

• Mastering search engine optimization
• Generating buzz on your business
• Developing a brand identity that makes your business stand out
• Common marketing mistakes you don’t want to make

Readers can check out the current issue at as well as review previous editions. They may also subscribe to Accent so the next issue arrives directly in their inboxes.

In March the Accent news team will explore communications. Articles will cover such topics as e-mail etiquette, VoIP, broadband wireless and online message boards for virtual professionals.
