How to Better Engage in Online Marketing: Questions You May Be Embarrassed to Ask

21 Feb

Many times, people have good questions about how to engage in online marketing but are afraid to ask them.

Consider this observation from David Williams, CEO of Fishbowl: “The Internet has been around for quite a while now, but there are still a surprising number of business executives who don’t understand its usefulness and are afraid of looking weak by seeking to learn the basics of Online marketing. For the past half-decade, my Marketing team has been using PPC ads, SEO, social media, blogs, and other online tools to reach a wide audience and educate them about a topic as seemingly boring as inventory management software. If we can do it, you can definitely do it as well. In that spirit, I would like to humbly offer my answers to eight questions about online marketing that we find many companies are still too embarrassed to ask.”

    David Williams, CEO of Fish Bowl, a company that offers services and products to help businesses with online marketing. This blog provides information for executives who aren’t that savvy about online marketing and might not be comfortable admitting it. Williams gives the meaning of 8 key terms and his opinion of their value. I think this is great because he provides very basic, easily understandable definitions.
