Search Marketing: Everything You Wanted to Know But Were Afraid to Ask – A Free Webcast

Redding, CT (PRWEB) November 28, 2007

Search engine marketing continues to represent a growing piece of any marketing campaign. According to the search marketing organization SEMPO, marketers spent $ 9.4 billion on search engine marketing in 2006, a 62% increase over 2005 spending.

Traditional marketers know they need to adopt some of the tactics of search marketing — but where to start? How do you even understand the language of search — SEO, PPC, SEM, SMM, usability, inclusion, analytics, — what does it all mean? And does it impact today’s marketing and advertising campaigns?

On Thursday, December 13 at 1:00 PM Eastern Standard Time, Detlev Johnson, one of the leading experts in the search marketing industry, will deliver an introduction to search marketing in the webcast “Search Marketing — The Basics.”

“More and more we’re finding traditional marketers turning to Search Marketing Now webcasts — the presentations cover a range of information for both the novice and expert alike. Detlev’s webcast will provide the basics for anyone getting to know search marketing,” said Claire Schoen, Director of Search Marketing Now.

Johnson, who founded the I-Search Forum in the late 1990s, is widely acknowledged as a top technical search-marketing expert and industry leader. He’s a well-known speaker at industry conferences, and is currently president of SearchReturn, a fully moderated free email newsletter and digest of subscriber posts.

Search Marketing Now webcasts are live, online presentations delivered in a PowerPoint presentation and streaming audio. The webcast will last approximately 50 minutes, including a live Question and Answer session with the speaker. (Attendees may submit questions during the webcast.) Registration is still open and there is no charge for the webcast.
