Recently more than ever it has become more important that we as SEO’s have a broader knowledge of other marketing disciplines, and how to incorporate them into and overall marketing/search strategy. Two of the key synergies with SEO recently have been social and public relations and we have been lucky enough to get hold of Nichola Stott and Claire Thompson from SEO PR Training to answer some of your SEO/PR/Social related questions.
To ask a question simply leave a comment below and I will pass them onto the ladies at SEO PR Training and post the answers in a separate post.
I have included short bio’s of the panel below so you get some sort of idea of the questions they will be able to field, but don’t be afraid to ask anything at all.
Nichola Stott is a director and co-founder of theMediaFlow, a leading UK SEO, (search) and social media agency, specialising in devising creative online marketing strategies, with a scientific data-driven approach. Founded in May 2009, theMediaFlow has fast established an excellent reputation in this highly competitive space, with regular contributions to industry media, including Search Engine Watch, State of Search, econsultancy and SEO Chicks.
She was previously Head of UK Commercial Search Partnerships at Yahoo! a global Internet brand and one of the worlds’ largest online destinations; and during that time managed commercial search business and implementation on sites such as AutoTrader, MoneySupermarket, Orange, The Guardian, ITV and many more.
Claire Thompson is the managing director of Waves PR, a company offering PR services to digital startups, technology and telecoms companies, and a founding director of SEO PR Training.
She founded and ran the UK’s first ethical PR consultancy, and retains a strong interest in good practise and continuous learning, which has resulted in the thupr meetup group – an informal forum for people to play with the digital tools that help PR.
It was through a thupr event that she first worked with Nichola Stott, an event intended to help grow PR people’s understanding of SEO.
