Best Practices for Staffing or Outsourcing Internet Marketing: Automation Alley will host a panel discussion Oct. 23 on a “build or buy” decision when it comes to marketing. Join us for this panel discussion with three seasoned Internet marketing professionals: Dunrie Greiling, COO of Pure Visibility; Ryan Eisert, Sales Director of Digital Solutions, MLive Media Group; and Eric Kushner, Director, Marketing Strategy, Compuware. Don’t imagine the Web is only for e-commerce. Many business-to-business companies are using their Web sites and the internet to generate leads and garner new business. This panel will cover some key questions in the decision to hire in-house or outsource Internet marketing. The best approach for your search engine optimization, web analysis and reporting, and paid search advertising (e.g. Google AdWords) will depend on your needs, your existing team, and, of course, your budget. You will leave with an understanding of the time commitment, budget commitment, and trade-offs in this decision. The event begins with networking at 9 a.m. and the discussion from 9:30 to 10:30 at Automation Alley, 2675 Belligham in Troy. More at www.automationalley.com.
