In the current economy, SEO (search engine optimization) and social media (Facebook, Twitter, Linked In and the like) are all the rage. Justifiably so. But for the most part, people are interested for the wrong reasons, ie: many tend to think it’s a free or cheap way to making big money on the Internet. Yes, it’s far cheaper than most traditional marketing methods, but it’s far from free! In fact, a solid commitment of time and financial resources is required for success in these venues, just as it is in any other worthwhile arena.

And some of the easiest to implement can also begin providing marked results.
