SMBME #10 – Getting Your Website Found with Social Media and SEO

In this special breakfast we asked two of Maine’s top SEO to come and talk to us about social media and SEO. Kasi Gajtkowski started the morning by explaining to the group what SEO actually was, how it worked and what real time search is. All of this is super important for small businesses to understand. Nicki Hicks followed up with how you can use SEO tools to optimize your social media content and profiles. Both presentations were jam packed with tools we could take home to use and examples. Both presentations are embedded below.
