I have just created a brand new Online Marketing forum on my home site. It will cover SEO at all levels, online and offline marketing and PR. That’s just as a starting point.
I observed that while there is a huge interest in the business community regarding SEO and Online Marketing in general, there is a natural reluctance to ask questions to real life people. I understand this completely. Nobody likes to appear ill informed. Social Media and SEO are relatively new fields though. They are also fields where there is a lot of bad information available online. Online Branding is a new concept to many businesses, particularly for SME’s.
SEO training and Social Media training are my own preferred areas, but while I can personally add a lot to the forum in these areas, I want people to freely express their own views in all areas. The forum is to be a free information resource.
My purpose in creating the Online Marketing Forum, was to create an environment where people could ask the “silly questions” with a degree of anonymity. It should also become a place where professionals can argue the pros and cons of their latest thinking.
The forum is brand new, so therefor it is fairly empty at the moment. Don’t hold back. If you are involved in Online Marketing or want to find out more about it then join it. Post a question, comment or hypothesis. This is a resource for you. This is a free resource and while it is hosted on the Webshed site, I hope that it will be populated by professionals in competing companies as well as my own.
