Why should I use Search Engine Marketing?

Why should you use Search Engine Marketing?
You mean, besides that it's 2015??
Question... if you need to find a roofer or plumber what do you do?
Do you take our your cell phone? Do you do a Google search or ask Siri?
If your answer is YES that is the only reason you need!

Search Engine Marketing is basically like taking up open real estate online. The catch is that you can do so with minimal cost! I hate PPC. I despise it.

I prefer Organic SEO. What is Organic SEO? Ask me and I shall tell!!

I wanted to give everyone a chance to connect with me on all my social media sites so I am going to add these links into this blog.

A blog to me is almost like a note, short story, or essay. I am sure it depends on the purpose of your blog. If your a business you would want to promote your products or services generally. My business is to help others learn in an easy to understand way so I want to talk more as from an individuals perspective. I will respond to all comments or questions to the best of my personal ability.

I learned how to do Internet Marketing from first hand experience.
Never discount the benefits of webinars, online training videos, and in house sales meetings where you are able to learn about new programs offered and provided with advanced technology.

Internet Marketing Is Imperative in 2015 For Your Business

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.
