Redding, CT (PRWEB) June 29, 2011
For most small business owners -- especially those involved with an offline, brick and mortar presence -- online marketing can be like learning a new language. SEO, PPC, SEM -- the acronyms alone can be overwhelming.
Throw in some technical jargon from the web developers and designers and the entire process becomes daunting.
It's no wonder some small local businesses shy away from online marketing partners or agencies. It's hard to ask for help when you don't know where to start.
"Essentials of Online Marketing: A Primer for Brick-and-Mortar Business Owners" offers a concise and easy-to-follow guide that will help small business owners get a handle on where they need help.
Trying to learn more about SEO or keyword research so you can hire a consultant? Want to understand how Google Maps work -- before you speak with your web designer? This guide offers just enough of the basics so that a local, offline business owner can ask informed, intelligent questions of a potential partner or agency.
Written by marketing experts Erika Potter, Matt Holyoak, and Andy Sherwin, this whitepaper is free and can be downloaded at Search Marketing Now.
