Do you own your brand presence online, whether it’s Google or social media? “At the bare minimum, your website is kind of your real estate -- that's your stake in the ground,” says Jason Dodge, founder and chief strategist for BlackTruck Media + Marketing in Grand Rapids. “If I meet you in person, and I hand you a business card, or we meet and you're going to circle back and look at what was that guy's name, I'm going to go and look his company up. And if I don't own my brand, that's a problem.”
Hear Dodge’s state-of-the-art advice for making sure your small business can be found online when he talks with Michael Rogers on SBAM’s Weekly Podcast.
