I have been involved in marketing for a long time and things do change frequently in the marketing world. If you are reading this 2 or 3 years from the time I wrote it, you might think I’m crazy. In marketing the one thing that changes the most often is SEO. Google changes the rules constantly, and the other search engines try to keep up. You think you have your strategy all heading in the right direction, but then change happens, so you can’t just set it and forget it. You have to look ahead to the next change coming. Google changes its search formula on average 550 times per year. Most of these changes are minor, but some will change things in a significant way as to how your site shows up in the page rankings. They want to provide their customers (the people asking Google questions) with the best experiences, so their systems are growing and getting smarter all the time, hence these constant changes.
Marketing today is much different than it was even 15 to 20 years ago when I got started in this industry. If you were trying to find new customers in 2000 we might have talked about print advertising, direct mail and radio ads. We might have been mentioning email marketing, but at that point, people were tired of SPAM and the horrible tactic some people were using. We would have definitely not been talking about Social Media (as it is today) as Facebook was not available to the public until 2006. So what are the best ways to market your business?
