Free Internet Marketing Clinics are offered twice a month in Search Engine Optimization (SEO) techniques, in the University of Houston Small Business Development Center at 2302 Fannin in downtown Houston. The objective of the clinics is to allow parties who want to promote business and other activities over the Internet to learn the best methods and practices of Search Engine Marketing (SEM) to become effective at web marketing.

Weekly presentations cover all aspects of internet marketing from planning an effective site, building your site, and optimizing your site for the search engines, to regular maintenance and enhancement of your site to maintain the rankings that you have achieved. Changes in the search engine marketing world are covered as they occur. Stay up to date with the latest information!

  • Learn the secrets of the most efficient marketing tool available, the Internet!
  • Meet other entrepreneurs who can help you with cooperative marketing and sharing of tips and techniques.
  • Get help with all aspects of working with the web and software packages used to develop your site.

Many of the tools that we describe in the class can be found here under "Useful Reference Sites". Of particular interest is the collection of links in a spreadsheet that we often refer to in class, which is available here.

A number of businesses have been very successful in utilizing search engine techniques to improve their performance. Read some of their stories at the links below:
Christmas Store   |   Mexican Food & Products   |   Stock Market Trading   |   Passport   |   Plastic Polymer Resin Recycling  |  New Inventions

More information about Internet marketing and Internet Marketing Tips can be found elsewhere on my site. Current information of interest will be added to my Internet Marketing blog.

7:00 to 9:00 p.m., Wednesdays

Notice: A wireless connection is available in the classroom. Login and password information is available from support staff.

Please be sure to check this site frequently for further information, as the situation can change any time. 

An important new technique for promoting your site consists of having subscribers set up a feed from your site on a portal page from the major search engines. Everyone in the class should create portal pages and pull in feeds from other class members in order to boost the capacity of our participants to help one another with web promotion. I have posted instructions for adding feed content for your convenience. Please use these instructions to pull a feed from my blog on Internet Marketing.

One of our class members has contributed a short article describing how this class has helped him with his new website for inventors. Another member has created a "social networking site" for the clinic where interested members can post information that may be of interest or use to other participants in the clinic. The theme of the site is "Internet Marketing Clinic", just as the clinic itself, and it is another free resource for small business owners and operators. Please visit the site to see how it can help you, and contribute your own thoughts about marketing over the web!

Click here for more information on the software and to download a trial version.A handy tool that I use for managing reciprocal links on my site and on my clients' sites is Arelis, a software package available from Axandra.  This is not "freeware", as are many of the software packages I mention on this site, but it is software that I use personally and have found to be a very powerful and useful aid to the tedious work of obtaining and managing the all-important links in to my sites.  It is available for a trial period to give you an opportunity to experiment with its functions. Although you cannot use the trial version to work with the links on your site,  you can get a good idea of the functionality of the software and how you use it. I have some notes on the software and on linking your site.
