Difference between marketing and advertising

What is marketing - 3 perspectives

This is my own theory, but it seems to work like a charm every time, and was extremely effective for me when i was just a beginner in marketing. This concept helps you to plan out or keep in mind the core concepts of what will make a marketing campaign successful. The 4 items are: 1) Scale of the number of people you will reach 2) The cost of your marketing campaign 3) The quality of the targeting of how well you reach your target market and 4) Eventual conversion of the people you reach to becoming clients of your business.

Introduction to marketing with 4 pillars of marketing

SEO (search engine optimization) is a topic to which it is hard to give an introduction because SEO has grown to be many different things to many different people. And really, where do you start to explain SEO? At the heart of it, of course, the practice of SEO is your practice as a marketer to position your website or product pages to get as much search traffic as possible. Many people associate SEO with Google search because Google is the biggest player in search. But the truth is that people search for things everywhere on the web. For example, people search mobile app stores for apps, they search Amazon, eBay or Etsy for products, they search Yelp for local businesses, and they search iTunes for music and podcasts. All that is SEO, and in this part of the course you will learn how to capture all of that traffic.
