(* You may recall we rescheduled speaker Lou from last month)

Topic:

21st century public relations, and how once traditional PR methods are now all a part of an SEO plan. Blogging, customer interaction and more are all parts of smart, organic SEO. Spreading content across various channels, by way of guest posting, back links, referrals, and positioning oneself as an expert are all necessary to being found on search engines. Additionally, creating content is one of the hottest topics in marketing right now. It is a double-edged sword.

First and foremost, no marketer wants to create content that isn't seen. Writing with SEO in mind is key. However, how does one balance that with writing for a human audience that still drives interaction and prospective sales?
