Editor’s Note: This summer, we are partnering with Susan Solovic, THE Small Business Expert, to share actionable tips to help you market your small business on a budget. This is the fourth of a series of videos with Susan Solovic.

Watch this week’s Market Your Business on a Shoestring Budget video for more advice about building your network.
