Introduction to Internet Marketing for Small Businesses: Get a sound primer in what may be the three most important aspects of Internet marketing: Search Engine Optimization (SEO), Social Media, and Pay-Per-Click Advertising. This introduction will familiarize you with the basic concepts and vocabulary, so you’ll be ready to move on to learn just how to put them to work for you and your business.
Local Search SEO: Discover the top ranking factors that determine success in local search with Google, Bing, and Yahoo. For businesses with a local or regional presence, there’s huge upside in optimizing your site for local search, and it’s a safe bet most of your competitors aren’t doing it right.
