Top 20 Marketing & Customer Acquisition Strategies for Startups

Here’s a quick overview of the marketing strategies you should have on your hit list:

• Search Engine Optimization – Make sure your websites and apps are optimized for search engines. Hiring an expert isn’t cheap, but it can pay dividends over the life of your company.

As soon as LinkedIn made the profiles public and optimized them for search engines, organic traffic took off.
