Search + Social = Success

Kent Lewis, President of Anvil Media, is Portland’s search engine marketing expert. More than one source has shared this insight with me since arriving on these mossy shores. It’s not a topic I know a great deal about, but its one that a bunch of clients with tightening budgets want to understand.
Kent shares his take on the Portland Ad Fed blog:

For agencies out there that are struggling through the economic downturn, I encourage you to shore up your client relationships by taking a deeper look at online marketing strategies, and how they integrate into the traditional marketing mix. Highly measurable, low-cost marketing campaigns are in great demand, and search engine and social media marketing are a natural solution.

Social media marketing, on the other hand, is a topic I know well. I must say, the fact that social media marketing is affordable and growing faster than kudzu on a hot day in Macon, is somewhat comforting.
