The internet is rapidly becoming the most important marketing venue for businesses today. The world wide web simply cannot be ignored if you are in business to make a profit today. There are thousands if not millions of consumers Googling and Facebooking their way to the better deals and faster service on the web.
Internet marketing trends like SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and PPC (Pay Per Click) are requiring business owners to increase their computer literacy skills and spend more time doing “listening” marketing.
Having a website is not enough to keep a business competitive today. You have to expose your website. Make it known. It has to be visible. It has to be frequently targeted by consumers and surfers.
Marketing an internet site is not an easy task –it’s fraught with challenges and seemingly easy tasks that end up being huge time consuming projects that take the business owner away from core business activities.
When it comes to the world of internet marketing, two of the most popular options available are SEO and PPC.
The Internet has now become an important medium for product and service advertisements. Almost every company that can afford print, radio and TV advertisements has ventured into placing ads on the Internet and optimizing their web site for the search engines. In this week’s discussion, we’ll discuss which business models benefit most from SEO vs PPC, and when they might be appropriate for your business.
