Product Description
Search has changed everything. Search has become woven into our everyday lives, and permeates offline as well as online activities.

Every business should have a search strategy. How a business appears online can impact consumer influence as much as if not more than offline advertising like TV commercials. A business's search strategy can have a dramatic impact on how consumers interact with that business.

But even more importantly, search engine activity provides amazingly useful data about customer behavior, needs, and motivations. Accessing search data is like conducting focus groups with millions of people for free. Search isn't just for marketers and techies. It can provide valuable insight on business strategy and product strategy.

Companies of all sizes – from startups to global enterprise level corporations, and even businesses without web sites – can benefit from understanding how consumers are searching for them and talking about them online, both as a powerful acquisition channel and a vast repository of market research.

In this non-technical book forexecutives, business owners, marketers, and product managers, search engine strategy guru Vanessa Fox-who created Google's portal for site owners, Googgle Webmaster Central -explains what every marketer or business owner needs to understand about how search rankings work, how to use search to better understand your customers and attract new ones, how to develop a comprehensive search strategy for your business, and how to build execution of this strategy into the businesses processes. This isn't another book about paid search for advertisers. This book focuses on organic listings – the unpaid results that receive 86% of searcher clicks.

  • Written by search engine guru Vanessa Fox, formerly Google's search engine strategy spokesperson and creator of Google Webmaster Central
  • Explains from a businessperson's perspective how to develop a successful search engine strategy
  • Shows how to use the easily accessible data from search engines to increase qualified traffic, better understand customers, and strengthen customer relationships
  • Reveals how smaller companies can leverage search engine marketing to achieve parity with larger brands

 

With this book in hand, every businessperson will have the knowledge and the tools to maximize the potential of search engine marketing to build a brand, draw new prospects, and generate sales.

Product Description
Managing online marketing requires a variety of skills which are not directly related to the work being performed. As a manager your job is to measure, budget, and prioritize this work. Understanding the benefits of different types of marketing, the metrics to measure those benefits and the risk reward for each type of marketing campaign is essential to managing online marketing. You can't count on the consultants you are working with, to tell you which methods will work best for you as most will favor whatever they specialize in, so you need the solid understand of how Social Media, Search Engine Marketing, Search Engine Optimization, and Affiliate Marketing work together, and how to balance the limitations of each. This book provides guidance, insight and strategies for managers, marketers, and executives in plain English. While this book is useful for a developer or engineer to understand what the end result of their efforts should be, it does not explain in technical terms how analytics are processed or provide code examples for creating reports. Instead this book focuses on understanding the output of tools, ROI's from different methodologies, and strategies for successfully marketing online. Through simple examples from familiar companies, Brandon walks you through how to use tools from Google, Alexa, Yahoo, Microsoft, and more to keep track of your presence on the web. Illustrations, and sample data let you see real world examples which demonstrate how other companies are approaching online marketing with and without success. Questions included in this text help you to ask your SEO, SEM, and Social Media Experts the right things to find someone who honest, qualified, and with the skill balance you need.
