  4. Brent: Good article and thanks for bringing this up. I loved the line about a “hammer” that is so true. This, like everything else, is another example of how marketers, retailers and manufacturers need to spend time on multiple methods of marketing their product/service. We’ve said that from the beginning…SEO isn’t a bad thing and SM isn’t the only thing. It all takes work… I did think that Gary could have shortened his post a bit. Yikes….! Thanks again for the tip! – Michael

    Yes – the post is long, but I do think it makes some good points. I like your quote, “SEO isn’t a bad thing and Social Media isn’t the only thing” – Michael Libbie. You need to hold onto that one for your show and website.
