Why is SEO a Key Pro Punch Strategy?

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is a key component of our marketing strategy services because most consumers today, including B2B, search online for products and services. Digital Marketing is critical to any company’s success. What most people forget is that for SEO to be done well – you must take a holistic approach. The same strategies that have always worked with marketing are still true, but they need to be also executed online in a strategic way.

Holistic Marketing Strategy Case Study:

Book Marketing 101 & General  Marketing Strategies SampleProfessional PUNCH gave a presentation to the Arizona Book Publishers Association with client Christine K. Bailey, a travel author that illustrated the successful marketing strategies used to create the author’s brand, improve recognition and increase her book sales by 67%.

“Christine and Kathleen’s presentation at the April 2011 ABPA publishing conference (“Marketing to the Media and Your Audience”) was amongst the mostly highly received of our presentations that day because of the strong interest of attendees in practical, real world advice.  We value having local authors and marketing strategists share their tips and lessons learned on their way to success.”

Jessica Tribble, President of ABPA (Arizona Book Publishing Association)
