USM in the News: SEO, Real Estate Marketing Online and Print Media
Union Street Media pulled a hat trick of news mentions this week. We think the readers of our blog will find something of value in each these articles as well.
Search Engine Optimization for Small Business
Our director of web strategy, Gahlord Dewald, was quoted in the Burlington Free Press for an article that discusses the marketing discipline of search engine optimization (SEO) from the perspective of a small maple syrup producer. Dewald says he was very happy to offer his insights to the story and encourages you to read the sidebar, especially Nicole Ravlin‘s excellent tie in to social media at the end.

Future of a Daily Print Newspaper
Union Street Media founder Ted Adler was quoted in a feature story about Free Press publisher Brad Robertson in Seven Days (the Burlington-owned weekly paper and kind-of competitor to the Free Press). Ted makes note of Brad’s innovative change-agent style. If you’re interested in what’s happening in news media, the article provides a great perspective from outside the big shakeups going on in the larger markets.
