Each summer, I go to give an introductory presentation to a group of IU freshmen who will be starting full time in the fall semester and have come on campus early to begin getting used to course work, scheduling, etc. The students in my session have self-selected as being interested in IT and/or web-based careers and within their summer class are building a website around a particular topic. I then go in to teach them how they might go about marketing that site via PPC and SEO and what those different SEM channels cover.
