The uber-networker David Berkowitz answers our burning questions about search marketing and where it’s headed. Learn why paid search advertising is growing so quickly (hint: the proliferation of small screens is a factor). And what marketers should be doing to maximize this powerful tool. David has been predicting trends in this field long before most of us, and in this episode, he gives us the skinny.
- No one is looking further than page 1 of search results, especially on small screens, which compels marketers to pay for top placement.
- Competitors like YouTube, Amazon and TikTok are grabbing share, but are still not an existential threat to Google’s dominance.
- To stay on top of change, we need to be “in there.” Try everything that comes along, and stay involved.
