Vote for Your Favorite SMB Online Marketing Advice

Voting for the Small Biz Discovery Contest is now closed. Thanks to the participants for such thoughtful contributions to the small business community!

In the end, we received four entries to the SEO category and two entries for the social media marketing category. (No one jumped on the opportunity to give PPC advice. Is there a reason the category was unpopular? You tell me. P.S. Tomorrow I’ll tell you some of the lessons we learned from this contest and what we’d do different next time around.)

We really hope that you take a moment to check out the articles and vote for your favorite in each category. Actually, we’re depending on it, since it’s your votes that play a large part in determining the winners of the contest. You’re holding a pass to SES San Francisco and two seats in our SEO Training in your hands. Shouldn’t they go to the most deserving authors?

Then again, I wouldn’t want to be in your shoes right now. Choosing the article that best answers the question “What one recommendation would you give a small business owner to improve their online presence?” is no easy feat in this group of contenders.

In the social media category, on the one hand we’ve got a tactical, implementation-oriented guide to social media channels, and on the other hand we’ve got advice for creating an informed social media strategy.

The SEO field is even tighter. One article focuses on the way to build a solid foundation for SEO success. Another submission explains a top priority for SEO success is getting buy-in. A third looks “outside the bot” from the human perspective of time, patience and realistic expectations in SEO. And the final entry is a primer to bring a small business owner up to speed on basic SEO methodology.

How to choose!? It’ll be quite a challenge, and we appreciate the help — which is why we’re also offering a prize to one voter. If you vote, you can enter a drawing for a seat in our SEO Training. This first round of voting is open for the next two weeks, so why not do it now so you don’t forget? And feel free to spread the word. We’d love to know who’s SEO or SMM advice you agree with the most and who you think should get a free pass to SES San Francisco!

Thanks Brent! I’m done voting. All the articles have substance and structure, which makes it ever so hard to choose. Good luck to everyone.

Those were great reads. It really is hard choosing since all of them have made good points. I would really love to vote. I just don’t know how.
