You went into business to make money and the way you make money in business is to be seen. If people don’t know about your business, how can you make any sales?
For most people being seen in business involves marketing…social media, ads, email, lives, etc. If you’re like most small business owners, you’re doing everything on your own and just don’t have the time to dedicate to marketing because you’re busy doing client work.
When I started my business way back in 2014, I did all the things and kept myself spinning trying to do everything that running a business involves. If I could go back to my younger entrepreneur days I’d tell myself to hire someone else to handle the marketing aspect so I could focus on making money.
There’s no way you can dedicate time to making CEO decisions when you’re worried about what to post on Instagram every day.
Sounds great, but there’s a challenge when you’re first starting out and don’t have much of a budget.
So, how do you do it?
Fortunately, there’s a solution.
Acadium allows you to find remote marketing talent on any budget. It’s a great service for busy entrepreneurs who may have a smaller budget for marketing help. Acadium has a pool of apprentices that are looking to start careers in digital marketing and gain real-world experience. The biggest advantage over other marketing platforms like Upwork or Fiverr is that you often get better quality work for a lower fee.
Price: $499 per quarter for 1 apprentice or $1,999 per year for 2 apprentices at a time
Promotion: Get $100 off when you sign up for membership
According to Acadium, their tagline for business owners is to “Mentor emerging talent and grow your business affordably.” It’s an easy-to-use platform that allows you to sign-up (after a brief interview), match with an apprentice and start an apprenticeship while you mentor them along the way for three months at a time.
In my opinion, if you’re looking for marketing help for your business for a budget and enjoy mentoring others, Acadium is a great platform. I’ve been on the platform for years (previously GenM) and thoroughly enjoy mentorship and the help I get with marketing tasks for my business.
In addition to the great pricing, Acadium gives pretty sweet referral fees for mentors. I highly recommend this service. You can’t go wrong with having a dedicated apprentice for three months at a time to check off your marketing tasks.
