Thanks for the detailed response Tim. I think it's safe to say for most businesses, whether you're looking at SEO, Adwords, social media or otherwise, it's a costly exercise for the inexperienced. More often than not, bringing experts into the business whether you outsource or hire in-house is the best way to go about it. Everyone will tell you what amazing work they've been able to do and if uneducated in the space, it is nothing but a gamble. Relying on someone's word is dangerous territory. Whatever it is you do, educate yourself about the basics of SEO, Adwords, social media. Make sure you know how to measure the performance and progress. Without which, you're months in and $'000s out of pocket with not much to show for.

There are lots of options for online marketing.  Using SEO and SEM together is ideal as main search engines are constantly changing their algorithms  for rankings so stop thinking of SEO and SEM as rival forces. When used together they are complementary services that help boost ...  Continue Reading

Hi @Opal Daniels 

As ​​​@Jennifer Lancaster  and Uttam have mentioned, you can read all of the books and articles and do all of the courses, but the only way to properly learn digital marketing is to get stuck in and learn by doing. You’ll find that once you start working ...  Continue Reading
