Free Vs. Paid Marketing

Which Is Better?

…That’s a question many “newbie” marketers ask, following the assumption that there is one right or perfect method to marketing and advertising their product or business opportunity.

But all it really comes down to is this…

Time or Money

That is to say, determine what you are able to invest at this moment in time, where you’re at, and do that. If you have a lot of time but no money, then you’re going to need to go the route of “free” marketing methods that require no money, but they do require your time.

However, if you have a great job or have extra money to invest for whatever reason, but you have little extra time to devote to your business, you’ll be better off mastering paid marketing methods that get fast results by using your dollars, but require less of your time.

Neither free nor paid marketing are better than the other…they’re just different methods that fit different situations.

free vs paid advertising

…As the image depicts, reaching the top of a huge mountain is like you hitting your goal and succeeding online. For many people, it usually is a rounded off number like $10,000 per month. Whatever that number is for you, it’s waiting for you at the top of the mountain, and there are 2 ways to get there…

Free advertising methods work, and can definitely get you to the top of the mountain, but will take time and hard work…it’s like hiking up the steep, icy slopes of the mountain.

Paid advertising works faster, but takes an investment of money, much like it would cost more to have a helicopter take you to the top of the mountain. People who have the budget, even if it’s starting out at $100 or $200 per month, can reach success so much faster by investing in paid advertising methods.
