Best SEO and SMM Advice for Small Businesses — Harvest Edition

If you’re a small business owner (writers this means you too!) looking to DIY your online marketing solution, the amount of information you’re faced with daily, in terms of marketing and web 3.0 technologies, is overwhelming. It can be difficult for the layman or beginner, to know what information is helpful and what is just plain unnecessary.

Because of that, and because I cannot possible tackle all these topics myself and still have time to write for folks like you, I’ve decided to post a sort “Best of,” blog from time to time. I do this in the hopes of helping you parse the available information out there into something convenient, useable and easy to implement.

Some of these will be from my favorite SEO and Social Media (SoMe) blogs around the web, others may be from someone I just happened upon but felt they did a great job of explaining the topic and of making the information immediately applicable to your business.

Here’s hoping it helps you market your small business, while keeping costs down and your finger on the pulse of your industry.
