Marketing, particularly internet marketing, is an interesting creature. It’s equal parts creativity and science, with a dash of social zaniness thrown in for good measure.

When I first started working in marketing, I heard a lot about A/B testing.
We have an important announcement, and no, it’s not related to SEO. That’s right, this is purely for the joy of the people, and here it is: July 10th is the 78 year anniversary of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts.

As we all know, coming up with a fantastic business or website concept is really only half of the battle: the best idea ever is completely useless if nobody can find it. Similarly, you may have a great product that is unique in some key way that people would like to learn about, but don’t already know and therefore would not be likely to search for.
