The past year alone we have really seen a huge shift in the way that businesses are marketing themselves
Columbus, OH (PRWEB) January 12, 2009
Webbed Marketing, the leading social media strategy company in Central Ohio, will be offering an informative webinar series for 2009. The company has lead the internet marketing push in the Columbus area for the past two years. Although the series is set to cover traditional internet marketing strategies, such as search engine optimization, representatives from Webbed Marketing say that this series will pay particular attention to the rising demand for social media marketing experts.
"The past year alone we have really seen a huge shift in the way that businesses are marketing themselves," said Bill Balderaz, President and Founder of Webbed Marketing. "Consumers are moving away from traditional media outlets and getting more of their information online, in many different forms. This, combined with the relatively low costs when compared with traditional media forms, is what has made marketing with social media so attractive for businesses. Companies were dabbling in social media marketing before, but the drastic changes in the economy have really spurred interest."
The first quarter schedule for the webinar series is locked in for the 3rd Wednesday of each month:
January 21, 2009 - Including Online Campaigns as part of your 2009 Marketing Plan
This session is intended to serve as a primer for businesses that haven't got the message that the internet is the mainstream media outlet. The webinar will discuss the basics of how a business can take advantage of the online resources available to them. Balderaz will lead this discussion which aims to teach business owners how direct marketing, broadcast advertising, public relations and traditional advertising all integrate with online strategies.
February 18, 2009 - How Social Media has Affect the News
How many people know the Twitter Handles for their local news affiliates? How many are even aware that most major television, radio and print news outlets post breaking news stories on Twitter and other social media networks? We now live in an age of news on demand. Waiting for the evening news or morning paper to find out what might be affecting a business or industry is a thing of the past. Representatives from Webbed Marketing's Social Media Strategy team aim to teach how to navigate the social media sea and find the information which is important and relevant.
March 18, 2009 - Online strategies with Immediate Return on Investment
Every sales meeting centers around the same question: how can a business drive sales and leads right now? How far into an internet marketing campaign does a company see results? This session with Balderaz covers five programs which can be implemented to drive revenue online immediately. He will explain quick-hit tactics that generate immediate returns on online marketing investments.
Each of the webinars in this series will take place at 2:00 PM EST. Those interested in attending can visit http://www.webbedmarketing.com/webinars.html for more information.
