As the Internet grows older, more and more great opportunities present themselves. Online marketers no longer just have Google and a few directories to help them put their brands in front of people’s eyes. There are literally thousands of options, and you can’t pursue them all.

Here are just a few of the viable places where you can still put your brand and see positive results:

  • Google
  • Yahoo!
  • Bing
  • YouTube
  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • LinkedIn
  • Pinterest
  • Foursquare
  • Vimeo
  • Tumblr
  • Instagram
  • Flickr
  • Google+
  • Bebo
  • Blogger
  • WordPress
  • Ning
  • Delicious
  • Digg
  • Reddit
  • StumbleUpon
  • LiveJournal
  • Meetup
  • Myspace
  • Ryze
  • Issuu
  • Scribd
  • Posterous
  • Shelfari
  • Goodreads
  • Vox
  • Yammer
  • Yelp
  • Skype
  • Dropbox

And there are plenty more.

People often migrate to the largest communities and websites to market and promote their businesses, but you can get lost in the jungle that way. Many times, seeking out relationships in the smaller communities where there is less competition can be a better way to launch a new startup, especially a small business.

But the real key to successful online promotion is often limiting the number of sites you target and the amount of time you spend on those websites. Your best bet is to choose sites that afford you the best opportunities to reach the demographics you are targeting. If that’s Facebook, then it’s Facebook. Often, however, many small businesses would do better to try a smaller site where a larger percentage of the users are the perfect demographic group for you.

Don’t underestimate the power of self-limitation.
