SEO and Startups

SEO Article Posted by Internet Marketing Speaker on 08-04-2008

I found a great article by Randfish on Startups and Search Engine Optimization (SEO). It’s called I’m Getting Pretty Tired of Startup Advice that Doesn’t Include Any Mention of SEO-amen!! Randfish is commenting on several articles talking about SEO and makes this cogent observation:

Let me be clear on this point-not one of those posts has the word “SEO” in it, nor makes any clear reference to getting traffic from search engines. I’m forced to ask myself-are these people idiots? Well, are you?

I can’t think of a better tool than SEO and the internet to help a small business gain a foothold and possible investors! I’ve actually had clients tell me that they didn’t contact me at first because they were not a startup – they had been in business for years. Truth is, these are the same folks who put up a corporate brochure and then complain that they get no business from their internet marketing efforts! In my opinion, most of us are at the startup status when it comes to mastering the internet as a serious contributor to the bottom line. It doesn’t matter if you are using a website or a blog-they both need to have SEO for you to be successful over the long run. Read the article by Rand and reconsider whether you are really a seasoned business or a startup when it comes to making serious money on the internet-Good Luck!
