This hands-on workshop will provide attendees with an overview of organic search (how prospects find you without paying for it) can be influenced through integrated social media tactics. We will explain how the search engines send out their robots and what they look for. We will review the importance of keywords and content (both micro – like Twitter and macro – like blogs). We will discuss how to repurpose content (both external and internally developed).
