Building Your Business Through Search Engine Marketing

Please join YWSE on Tuesday, May 26, 2008 at 7pm when we
present Kent Lewis who will discuss " Building Your Business Through Search Engine Marketing."

While we all rely on Google for research, only those "in the know" are able to effectively use search engines to generate sales. Search engine marketing (SEM), which includes the disciplines of search engine optimization (SEO) and pay-per-click (PPC) advertising, has been proven to be one of the most effective forms of generating awareness, traffic and sales for businesses large and small. Kent Lewis, President of Anvil Media, will outline fundamental SEM strategies, including the 3Cs of SEO and the 4Es of PPC. From this presentation, you will be able to set up and manage effective SEM campaigns that will grow your bottom line. Kent Lewis is also President of Formic Media, an SEM agency focusing on small business, and is an adjunct professor at Portland State University, where he teaches an SEM Workshop.
