Surprise Regional Chamber: Making Sense of SEO & SEM Marketing Seminar



Surprise Regional Chamber Marketing Seminar - Making Sense of SEO & SEM Marketing

 
No matter what you call it, to be successful in today’s online marketplace, a company must be found in search engines.  Ensuring that your site is fully optimized for both paid and organic search is a critical piece of the online marketing puzzle, and – without it – you could be missing out on hundreds or even thousands of potential customers. SEO is something you must do (and keep doing) and the payback may take a while to become evident. PPC is something you should do when you have goals worth spending on and when you want to see instant results. So let's break these down and help you understand which one is right for your business!
