Links of the Week May 30th, 2008

eduwebconference Links of the Week May 30th, 2008I’m still trying to catch up from my previous five day weekend, but still lots of good links to share. Also wanted to shoot another plug out for eduWEB Conference 2008! I just found out this week that I’ve been bumped up to a session slot and will be presenting on Email Marketing, basically walking through the fundamental steps that should be part of every campaign. If you haven’t signed up to attend go register and I’d love to meet you there! The early bird discount for registration, save $100, runs until Sunday so there is still a little time. As I commented yesterday on Paul Redfern’s blog, Higher Ed Web Marketing, there is no harm in a shameless plug on your own blog. I mean it is my blog. icon smile Links of the Week May 30th, 2008

    Which one do you think is much better ? E-mail Marketing or Pay Per Click Advertising. I have tried using both E-mail marketing and PPC Advertising to advertise my products` and both seems to do equally well.
