    I help small business owners understand social media and the internet. I work with them to identify the internet marketing methods that will be bring them the greatest return on their investment, and then help them to implement a comprehensive and holistic internet marketing plan. The typical internet marketing plan will start by making sure that the business has a great website on which to build and add good searchable content. We'll talk about SEO, identify which social networks need to have a presence, and discuss how best to use those social media platforms.
