A SEO Glossary For Beginners & Small Business Owners

In Tips & Tricks by District Maven

When I first founded District Maven, most conversations with potential new clients (and current ones, for that matter) revolved around why one should engage in online marketing in the first place. Thankfully, the public's general understanding as grown alongside technology, ultimately leading to far more insightful, advanced conversations.

Even fewer people know to implement them -- and with good reason.
