About the Event:
Asia has traditionally lagged about 10 years behind North America and Europe when it comes to online marketing. But now companies are catching on, and catching up, and they’re doing it in a hurry. The businesses that are first to embrace online marketing techniques like search engine optimization (SEO) can build a long lasting competitive advantage, if they do things the right way.
Although this may sound intimidating, it doesn’t have to be complicated. The Technology Committee is proud to present the first of our Back to Basics series focused on online marketing and SEO in particular. The course will be taught by CanCham member and TEDx speaker Joshua Steimle of international online marketing firm MWI.
Attendees of this course will learn:
- How search engines like Google, Baidu, and Yahoo work
- How much you can realistically expect to spend on SEO?
- How to make the choice to do your SEO in-house or hire a firm?
- How to avoid getting ripped off by an unscrupulous SEO firm?
- What you can do today, for free, to instantly get better SEO results?
