What are your Marketing Questions?

What are your marketing questions? I'll answer one every week!

While some of you know me for website design and social media programs, a lot of my day is actually spent answering client questions about marketing.

Do You Know the Difference Between SEO and SEM?

I've had a lot of inquiries lately from people asking if I will help them with their site SEO. As a practical matter, mine is not an SEO company.

Marketing Question of the Week: Do you feel that LinkedIn endorsements are a useful tool?

This question came from Scott Boyages of Scott Boyages Promotions. 

Great question Scott... my question to you is "What do you define as 'useful'?" 

The endorsements feature makes it very easy, almost TOO easy, to credit people for their work. For that reason, many people don't take it seriously. It's the equivalent of a "LIKE" on Facebook.
