Scott Cornelius, president of ECI Agency, Inc., is our speaker for March.
During his talk, Scott will share how organic search engine optimization and internet marketing changed the perception of a small agency in Piedmont to one of the largest agencies in the state.
Scott learned very quickly, after purchasing ECI Agency, Inc. in 2006, that the traditional marketing methods used by his father were not going to get him the growth he needed to survive. He will share what has worked, including an email marketing plan, social media, a ten-year business plan, and an Advanced Search Engine Optimization (ASEO) program developed through a partner resource.
