Why is it so important that business doesn’t only rely solely on SEO and social media for generating revenues? A lot of companies think that Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and social media are free, this is a common misconception, because these two methods of internet marketing still cost money and require time.

The online ad campaign will ensure that the business is still maintaining a steady revenue stream while waiting for ranking results and social media traction.
