So you’ve started a tech startup -- which at least for now, is bootstrapped. 

Given how buyers research and make purchase decisions in a self-directed way, you know that your tech startup needs to go big on your digital marketing strategy. But with very limited financial resources, you just don’t know where to start -- especially because you don’t come from a sales or marketing background.

So how can you make a splash with your SEO, blogging, and social media marketing?

In other words, what are some low- and no-budget options to get started with digital marketing?

For small business owners that want to level up their marketing (and that don't come from a marketing background), I have a few low-budget recommendations:
