I have spoken at my networking meeting on Thursday morning about the importance of having an active twitter account and a up to date LinkedIn profile. The more exposure a company has the internet the better placement they have on Google and other search engines. I was amazed how many did not have a LinkedIn profile. They understand how important it is and 95% of the group of 44 now have a LinkedIn profile.
I am working with a new firm in Dearborn to assist in setting up google adwords campaigns for their clients. Their clients were just like I was when I started this course. I was unsure how google adwords worked and was unsure how someone could guarantee first page placement on google. What about the other search engines??? I am able to assist them in understanding how adwords works and how it will benefit their company.

During this week of presentations we have discovered that we can set up ads around the donations for gifts for abused children. This will help get the donations up and help families with the gift giving that is so important for a child.

I have recently started working with a local attorney to assist with the pay per click campaign and setting up analytics. I have also worked on his website to make the landing page a better fit for his campaign. We are waiting to see how it is working. It has been running for a about a week now. I will update on how it is working as the campaign progresses.
With the class discussion today I learned how powerful the linkedin profile is and what you are able to do with your profile. I cannot wait to put some of this into action. I did know that the profile is very important. I have been searched and contacted about my locksmith business. I need to get the SEO more of a presence.
Today I found out that I do not have the internet presence that would be required for me to be found. I also found out that the the QR code on a business card is very important for a person to have and that it can be pointed in the correct direction with the proper guidance.
After doing some of the reading I am finding that the certification will be a great tool to have in a persons tool box. I am finding many ways to be able to use it. I meet different people and companies everyday that are unsure about the whole pay per click advertising and how to measure the results.

I have set up my account for the google certification. Does anyone know what we need to be doing on the site for the certification? There are a lot of presentations on the site to watch and or read. Do we need to go through all of them for the certification?
I have met with a couple of marketing companies about the expansion of web based marketing. I have given them the contact info for the class. One of the companies is starting an adwords department based out of Farmington Hills. The company is suppose to be emailing Bud with contact information.
I have looked at Melanie's linkedin account and after talking with her on the phone let her know that she needs to put the google adwords experience on linkedin. We are both having issues with the linkedin account. The problem is that we have past experience that is relevant.
