Web Marketing Isn’t IT. Stop Treating Like It Is!

web marketing

One of the early misconceptions about SEO is that it’s a job for the IT department. Of course, back when SEO first came about, just about everything computer related was considered a function of the IT department!

But many still hold to that concept that SEO, and web marketing at large, is something the computer guys can do. While many are starting to understand that the IT guys know very little about web marketing, there are still those that haven’t fully grasped the “marketing” part of the equation.

Many businesses still hand their web marketing to the web developers (as opposed to the IT team.) While that’s a step in the right direction it’s still very far off the mark.

Web marketing is no more IT than putting together a TV commercial is writing. [Tweet This]
Yes, you have to write a script for your commercial, and the IT department does get involved in the website, but neither of those is the driving force of the marketing campaign. At least, they should not be.

Web marketing isn’t just another technical thing people do with computers. [Tweet This] Once you understand that you understand that web marketing (and web design) are best handled by true web marketing experts.
