Event on 2013-05-28 16:00:00
What is the difference between SEO, SEM, Social and Digital Marketing? How do search engines find my website? Can I pay to be number one in Google?
Because we live in a digital age, there isn't a business out there today that will be solely bricks and mortar without also having a web presence. Knowing the basics – from how to ensure your website will be crawled by the search engines, to how to use social media to your best advantage, is absolutely essential for any budding entrepreneur.
It has become very easy to start our own sites, blogs or even just put a bricks & mortar company online thanks to all-in-one web packages and blogging platforms. However many people do not neccessarily understand why search engines are important. Search Engine Marketing 101 will give a simple background introduction to what SEM is and how anyone can learn the basics to help get the most out of of their personal or business website.
