I always recommend that small businesses spend the time doing SEO for themselves. You know your business and should know the phrases people are typing into the search engines to find you.

Think about your business. What niche can you promote yourself in? If nothing else, that's a great exercise for every business: more narrowly define what you offer. It's valuable even if you don't do it for SEO.

Think about links that would be great to have back to your site. Go to Yahoo and type into the search box the URL of your biggest competitor to get an idea of the links that they have. Type: "Links:"(your URL). Links will not only help your SEO but will help promote you within those sites.

Then write a blog and do the other things suggested. Go to Google and set up an account so you can use the Adwords keyword tool. Use it for post cares, ads and other promotions. It will also help you with some SEO keywords that help define you.
