There was a time when Internet marketers would argue over SEO and social media and debate over which is more important. They still debate the question, but most Internet marketers today see benefit in both. Gone are the days when a respectable marketer would shout SEO and dismiss social media marketing altogether. You are just as likely today to meet online marketers who swear by social media and dismiss SEO.
But that isn’t smart either. The fact is, to succeed in today’s online world, you need both. You are competing against companies that have a sound social media marketing strategy and a good SEO team. Some of those companies have deep pockets. You need to be a bit more stealthy.
Small businesses can employ success SEO techniques in conjunction with strong social media presences and build good solid businesses. It helps to be patient, study the field, and don’t just jump in where you aren’t sure about. Just a few minutes a day and you can build a good business with both social media and SEO.
