Marketing influences everything you do, and it most definitely influences the success of your business. We think it largely depends on the business that you’re running. All marketing techniques have success for every business, but there are some marketing techniques that have the edge over others. For example, if you’re an e-commerce business, there’s a trio of marketing techniques that offer a lot of success. SEO, PPC, and Google Adwords are three big marketing techniques that directly influence online success.
