Ask Ray Allen, a former ad agency executive who is now the president of American Meadows, a wildflower seed supplier in Williston, Vt. “I used to spend millions of dollars of other people’s money on TV, radio and newspapers,” Mr. Allen said.

He now spends about $300 a day to buy search terms like “wildflower seeds” and “hummingbird garden” from Google and Overture to advertise his own company, reaching a national audience of potential customers.

“Never in the history of media,” he said, “has a small business been able to have that much reach.”
