Why Organic SEO Outperforms PPC Campaigns

A wise man once said patience is a companion of wisdom; however, these days most people seem fixated on immediate gratification. Sadly, this mindset has found its way into many American businesses which have come to value fast, short-term results over long-term commitments that promote enduring success.

YouTube Marketing Commonsense

To a small start-up that is on a tiny marketing budget, a YouTube channel with regular content updates can be one of the most powerful marketing tools available. A video campaign on YouTube, though, is no guarantee of action. You need to know how to work it.

Google Wants a Whole Site

The greatest difficulty I have is explaining to clients the “Whole Site Concept” that Google currently is looking for. It’s hard for an established business that has been on the Internet for over 10 years to understand this shift. In the old days (some may say better days), one just needed to put up a basic site and create as many product/category pages as possible to be successful.

When businesses think about PR, they often think of how to get that coveted story by a well-respected, or heck any, journalist in media outlets. So, when a journalist is looking for an expert to quote in a story, where do you think they look? Like most folks, they search on Google, Bing or their favorite search engine.
