Marketing Roundup: Social Media, PPC, Conversion and More

Marketing roundup

Many of the demands of marketplace selling are technical and process-driven: rules, systems, and software automation. It’s geeky stuff.

Marketing, on the other hand, takes skills in creativity, salesmanship and psychology. It’s a different world.

Or so you may think.

There is a need for all that in marketing, but it’s not all about creativity and intuition. Like anything else, marketing skills can be learned. And a lot of online marketing is actually very technical.

So here’s a roundup of our past posts on marketing: eBay optimization, Amazon advertising, social media, PPC and more. Geek or not, I hope you find it useful!
