Search Engine Optimization is an incredibly interesting topic. It has changed radically over the years, and there are often heated debates about white hat and black hat SEO practices.
SEO is one of those topics that are easy to understand – at least a high-level, but very hard to become a master of. In our industry, we often hear business leaders say they want to rank #1 on Google, and there are also companies that promote they will get you there. Yes, there are tactics and strategies to get you higher in search results, but your success at doing so is quite technical and takes a commitment of time and money over a very long period of time.
Looking back at my discussion with Nate, I was impressed with and really respect the fact that he was very clear on what it took to be successful with SEO. He even goes so far to discourage companies at certain stages in their growth to NOT invest in SEO.
Nate and his team, are clearly interested in the best interests of their clients, rather than just selling something that people will buy. We need a lot more companies like that in marketing and business in general for that matter. Nate also offers a free download of the CMO’s Guide To Modern SEO, so be sure to listen for that and to see the link below.
Whether you are a large company with a big marketing team or you are just getting ready to hire your first marketing person or contractor, I’m confident that you will learn a lot during this episode. And, I hope that it gets you one step closer to being able to Master Modern Marketing.
