Standing out from the crowd seems almost impossible in today's online world. Everyone is online, everyone shares your specialty (or at least thinks they do), everyone is loud. The tips you get all over the web are the same, share lots of content, write comments, guest post, go nuts with SEO, repeat. Online marketing is often viewed as some sort of a difficult trick, which requires selling your soul to some a biblical beast and having supernatural skills. However it can be anything but sleazy and unpleasant. It can be fun, easy and smart.
Without marketing you won't get customers, readers for your blog, publisher for your book and sales. Without marketing your product is but a nice thought. Online marketing is these days the centre of marketing. It is the first and last note of you marketing decisions.
Every day people around the world are using the Internet for finding information, buying and talking about products. 3,5 billion searches are made each day through Google alone. That is 3 500 000 000 searches. Per day!
I offer you almost two decades of experience and a formal education in everything about web and marketing. In 2009 I wrote my bachelor's thesis about social media in business-to-business marketing and in 2010 I graduated with a degree in Digital Media (Bachelor of Culture and Arts). I've been freelancing in designing, building and tweaking websites, branding and doing online marketing for 9 years.
