Ask 100 people, "What's the first place you look to find a business or information on a business?" and 98 will say Google.  Yet phone book ads, glossy brochures, and static "cobweb" sites still make up the bulk of many small and medium sized company marketing budgets.  Break out of the old routine and hear some low cost - high impact organic Internet marketing strategies that will give your firm a fighting chance online.  Doug Mitchell, Founder of createWOWmedia ( will show you how to increase your Internet Findability Factor and amplify your online brand with a focus on web video and multimedia.
