55% of all videos NOW viewed online were found through search. Video marketing with YouTube is huge and businesses who work hard on it for the next 3 years will reap huge dividends over time in new customers and clients. The real SEO value is in the fact that Google owns YouTube and that is one of the major things that drive video search when it comes to Search Engine Optimization.

LinkedIn is the most significant social media site to use for business because it is where business people are. Unlike Facebook that is overrun by useless novelty apps and Twitter which is limited to 140 characters, LinkedIn allows professionals to meet and network in a format that opens doors of opportunity. Over the past couple years, I have built a network that connects me to over 16,373,345 professionals! That’s significant. I can meet just about anyone else on the site I want to with relative ease.” Read more from Joel’s blog HERE
I include your blog last, not because it’s the least important but because it is the most important. And I suggest WordPress.org because in my opinion it is THE BEST blog/website platform for 96% of the business owners I meet. And when it comes to SEO and getting your business found based on your keywords it is simply second-to-none. I will soon have a link for your to get your themes for as low as $1 each. I am in the process of getting 12 different affiliates set up and yes I am a HUGE believer in affiliates! M3 specializes in building Word Press blogs and website’s. We have built over 100 websites in the past 2 years and 98% of them are wordpress and customers LOVE them! This website is wordpress and so will MichaelDButler.com (under construction) you can bookmark it now-THANKS. The TRUTH is blogging targeted keywords with quality, relevant content, served up to Google consistently will keep you at the top of Google’s search engines! Most people quit but as my friend Brian at the TulsaFood.com blog who gets 100,000 unique visitors a month says: “Something magical happens after you blog consistently for a year.” Most people give up after 6 months!
In conclusion, companies, individual entrepreneurs, business owners, authors, speakers and start-ups who strategically use social media can see long-term, measured ROI (Return on Investment) that can take the place of traditional advertising and marketing. SMO (Social Media Optimization) happens when a long-term comprehensive strategy is used in conjunction with video marketing, blogging, SEO and SMO.
