  • Best Practices For Internal SEM Teams

    Maintaining an internal search/Internet marketing team can be hard and many companies face the challenge of what to outsource and what not, especially now with all the major upgrades Google and the other marketing channels keep throwing at them.

    In this seminar, we will look at the best practices in-house search/Internet marketing teams
    can implement and the tools they can use to maximize their work efforts. Key issues to be covered include: who to hire; how to maintain, education and train; when to outsource; and what tools to use. These are all but a small part of the bigger picture that companies must be aware of when maintaining internal teams. Expect to walk away with deeper knowledge on these and other matters, and how to solve them.
