We at Yooter InterActive Marketing just wanted to thank Zagat ( http://www.zagat.com ) for allowing us to help with some search engine optimization issues.
We at Yooter InterActive take pride in the fact that we were one of the first firms in the country to adopt social media as our primary route to online advertising. We have become experts in Twitter, Digg, Facebook and others.
With the record growth of Twitter for example, we have been able to service our clients to extreme levels that other advertising agencies have yet to adopt as a core method of advertising…. but doing well in Twitter is meaningless if not combined with other advertising aspects.
You need a robust blogging platform, you need a robust mobile plan (that includes Twitter), you need a presence on Digg, you need a robust website and you need all these working as a well oiled machine to make it happen.
It’s the online equal to a comprehensive integrated advertising program, and that’s just not one aspect of social media, it’s the whole farm that needs to be thrown at it.
In this recession, social media and SEO will deliver the highest ROI of all marketing forms, if done correctly. Correctly being the keyword.
Search Marketing has been booming during this recession according to adweek.
Many of the more innovative firms that have focused on SEO, SMO and SEM have been growing in leaps and bounds. We view this report as vindication of our initial thoughts when Yooter was formed that the future of advertising and marketing is here.
During a recession, the first thing to go is advertising. It has been like that since the beginning the industrial age, it will continue to be like that in the future. This is not debatable. Though if you dig hard enough you might find one firm (notably P&G) that increases spending during recessions and even during the great depression.
That doesn’t exactly mean that advertising totally halts, it means that massive ad budgets are slimmed down to a fraction of what they were before.
In the last major recession ad budgets took the normal historical hit, but something has changed since the last major recession. It’s now very possible (and in most cases desirable) to run a robust advertising campaign completely online using SEO, SMO and viral campaigns.
Many advertisers are very pleased to see the lower cost of entry, and generally the much higher ROI.
In plain English, you can do more online with a fraction of the cost.
Let’s face it, print media is a dying industry… with every major newspaper showing declines in circulation and even back in 2005 the papers were resorting to shrinking the size of the paper. Americans overall are driving less due to increased gas prices. So your billboards are not getting the ROI you’re paying for, less people are reading the paper… and everyone is online at the expense of TV … literally and of course… the Yellow Pages are being used as door stops… it’s almost not worth mentioning them anymore as a valid marketing strategy.
People are not getting print media, not getting in their cars to see billboards, and not watching TV.. because they are all online searching, playing games, looking up economic reports, basically “hiding online” until the recession is over.
It almost sounds like a storm… and it is of sorts.. when gas exceeded 4 dollars a gallon, people refused to go out.
The last thing however they will cut out is internet access… they depend on it too much as a communication tool… Meaning that the lowest cost advertising method is also the one to help generate a positive ROI.
Search Engine Optimization, Social Media Optimization and digital overall will be the winners in this recession at the expense of TV, Print and Billboards.
It’s quite possible this recession will speed up the changeover to SEO / SMO and Digital faster than expected… as many larger firms are opting to an online only campaign during the recession… for good reason.. it’s the corporate version of what their clients are doing… “hiding online” during a recession.
What a better place to market to them. It’s the only place you will find them at this time.

Yooter InterActive is enhancing their search engine marketing offerings, and Amanda Yoder is going to take the lead in successfully creating SEM as one of Yooter’s core specialties.
Historically, Yooter has focused on organic Search Engine Optimization and social media, but when our clients asked for more intense search engine marketing we were here to meet their needs. Amanda’s initial focus at Yooter was search engine optimization, where she successfully achieved great results for her clients. With her transition into the SEM side, she comes from a background that includes not just search engine marketing, but an extensive background in search engine optimization. Her experience and knowledge on these two services is from an agency that has the realization of both, something that is painfully lacking in today’s online marketing industry.
Amanda is excited to take the lead in our search engine marketing department, and is committed to fulfill all of our clients PPC needs.
