If you have a big budget you can ignore Search Engine Optimization

Must be wonderful to have a big advertising budget like http://aquafestival.co.za then you don’t have to worry about being web standards compliant  (32 errors and 7 warnings) or any SEO (Search Engine Optimization), because people will find you any way.

Don’t get me wrong, I think the AquaFestival is a wonderful series of events, but for those of us on smaller budgets, SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and SMM (Social Media Marketing) can be very cost effective tools for getting our message out to the world.

Here is http://SEOworkers.com analysis of the AquaFestival website.

Shouldn't you be driving digital sales?

Should you really worry about pre-orders when record retail is dying and only star product gets stocked anyway?  Shouldn’t you be driving digital sales?  Won’t physical take care of itself?
