This is my first official blog for Learn. Grow. Shine.
I have had a personal blog and a few that I have created and managed for business.
This blog is going to be different.
This is going to be a way I can simplify using the Internet to market local businesses by creating conversation, answering questions, and sharing ideas.
LGS is special to my heart not only because it is MY business. There is so much more to know about my decision to start an educational take on Internet Marketing programs.
When working at my last employer previously to starting my business, I was truly befuddled by the cost of programs offered to our company. There was NO way my bosses were going to come out of pocket $1200 to BEGIN a SEM campaign. Not to mention the cost was $300-$400 each month for management. Ridiculous.
I took the time and I learned how to put these Internet Marketing programs into place.
If you don’t have the time to put the work in – I understand paying someone.
Blog #1 Tip: You can easily begin your own SEM campaign by claiming your listings on Google, Bing, and Yahoo. Make sure to fill in ALL information and use as many keywords as you can in your descriptive summary.
Just be smart. Don’t get taken advantage of. Beware of scams and automatic promises of first page results. Yes, you need Internet Marketing! What you don’t need is a company that won’t produce reports and/or proof of how your money is being spent.
You don’t need to know how many clicks/impressions – you need to know that calls are coming in and customers are shopping!
And if you don’t have the time to put your listings in place – Give us a call and let Learn. Grow. Shine. take care of your Internet Marketing needs.
