A strong Internet marketing program is one of the best, and low cost ways to build your brand and expand your lead generation activities. But what is Internet marketing? Basically, it is the process of maximizing exposure for your web presence via online newsletters, a web site, search engine optimization (make sure Google sees your links) and social media. Most Internet marketing is zero-budget. The real investment is not in paying for the buying space on the web, but allocating resources within your organization to make your brand visible.
