Businesses often see having a website and marketing online as an expense. Not enough see the value and income generating opportunities in having a strong Web presence. Being able to demonstrate and effectively communicate the power of return on investment is crucial for Web developers and marketers.

While each business sector is different, understanding and harnessing the power of Web marketing is very important, even for small businesses. This is especially true with professional services such as lawyers, doctors, and dentists, or other health care providers. Also, professions such as realtors, mortgage brokers, homebuilders, insurance agents, contractors, and other service fields can make a large profit from a new customer.
SEOs need to be able to demonstrate value and income generation they can provide. They need to understand the business’ market segment and be able to show the type of return on investment that makes SEO and Web marketing as a whole a top marketing strategy.
