Absolutely. Informal doesn't mean incorrect.
Thanks for the link - it would have been a good one for me to link to in the original article.
Thanks for the comment. There are certainly those mistakes that are just distracting - mostly the misuse of words. Writing informally can result in some grammar leniency as long as the writing sounds intelligent, it's OK to write like we speak.
Yes, typos and bad grammar in presentations can cause you to lose some of the audience. I know my eye goes right to the errors, which then causes me to tune out. If your - oops I mean you're :) - presenting, you should have proofed your slides more than once.
Thanks for the comment.
Agreed. Folks get impatient when they aren't seeing the results they expect immediately. Marketing is a marathon, not a sprint. You need to pace yourself to get the results you want.
Wow I guess there are a lot more myths to write about! SEO is dead is one that is being heard because of the Panda/Penguin releases of Google. Bad or unethical SEO is dead. Good SEO as part of your inbound marketing effort is very much alive.
Thanks for sharing!
Yes, I agree! A small business absolutely needs a marketing budget, even if it is small. Knowing that you do have money to spend on various activities does help you make decisions on what to spend it on.
