Marketing increases the brand footprint of a data entry business using a carefully crafted mix of techniques and tactics.
Public Relations Strategies
Public relations is more subtle, but no less powerful than a full-blown marketing push.

Storylines need to be believable and objective while communicating your brand's strengths and value proposition.
Despite the unrelenting demands of generating content on a monthly or quarterly basis, a company newsletter has promising potential as a marketing device. Unlike flyers and other advertising mediums, newsletters have an informational focus. In fact, the best newsletters encourage customers to take the next step without ever asking for a sale. These days, data entry businesses to distribute newsletters through online channels (e.g. in email campaigns and as PDFs on the company website).

Unless you have a marketing background, you won't be able to touch the ROI you'll receive from a professional firm. Does a marketing firm cost money? Sure, but not as much as you may think. When it's time to look for a marketing firm to represent your data entry business, experience should trump other considerations.
