Search Marketing Must Look To Training To Help Develop New Talent And Fill Skills Gap

At present there’s a real preference within the search engine marketing (SEM) industry to recruit team members with at least 2 years experience. However, this is proving difficult as the growth in search marketing activity is overtaking the growth of professional search marketers. So what can be done about the skills shortage?Companies have two possible options. 1) employ the services of a specialist search engine marketing agency to develop and implement their search strategy, or 2) recruit talent with potential and train them up in the different disciplines of search marketing.Search is in demand!With more and more businesses placing search high up on their marketing agendas it would make sense for them to do both. Companies will always benefit from having the strategic support of specialist agency to help them get to grips with the latest developments in search and to help them integrate search into their marketing mix. However, many of the day to day tasks associated with both pay per click (PPC) and search engine optimisation (SEO) can be effectively managed internally, providing that person has the right levels of knowledge to do so.In the current climate most organisations would probably be better off sticking with their agency but at the same time they should be thinking of developing a long-term training strategy to build up internal search marketing knowledge and skills.Building internal knowledge takes timeBuilding a team with solid SEO and PPC skills isn’t going to happen overnight and it does come with its risks. In a market that is short on supply of individuals with proven SEM skill sets, companies also face the prospect of a ‘brain drain’. There is the possible risk of recruits that have been trained up with these skills are then lured away by bigger players who are able to pay higher salaries.However, what is inevitable is that if the current trend continues and search marketers become few and far between then there will be a greater demand for agency support, and with demand outstripping supply, we could see companies paying a premium for search marketing agency services.Investing in search engine marketing training must not be viewed as a costly outlay but rather an investment. Companies that seize the opportunity to develop internal knowledge now, could benefit in the medium to long term by gaining a competitive advantage that is hard to replicate in the short-term.

Improving Senior Health Care

On May 11, 2009, Colorado Senator Michael Bennett introduced a new health care bill aimed to improve patient care and save money on health care costs. This new bill, the Medicare Transitions Act of 2009, is designed to improve patient care by ensuring that Medicare patients receive timely and effective follow-up care after they check-out of the hospital.The Medicare Transitions Act of 2009 bill aims to provide a nationwide network of local transitional care coaches that would help Medicare patients recover and self-manage their condition. Personal follow-up care would be offered in order to ensure that elderly patients were effectively self-managing their condition and properly administering medications.The bill would reduce costs by dramatically lowering patient readmission rates. Too many seniors are being readmitted into hospitals everyday even though it could have been prevented. For every five Medicare patients who are released from the hospital, one is readmitted within 1 month. This statistic can be prevented with proper follow-up treatment. Personal follow-up care would assess each patient’s condition and provide necessary treatment or further instructions for self-care.The cost of Medicare and Medicaid are two of the biggest deficits facing the nation today. Cutting costs on Medicare and Medicaid and improving senior care are exceedingly important in times of economic recession. Health care reform is essential to protect our elderly and secure our future.President Obama recently announced the introduced of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), a stimulus package designed to make health care affordable to all Americans. The ARRA allows $2 billion to be invested into community care centers, increase the quality of care provided to our elderly, and jumpstart our economy, among other things. These health centers will provide quality care for those who are in need, even for people who don’t have insurance.Unfortunately, many seniors cannot afford quality health care, and because of that our nation is suffering. Taking care of the elderly by offering quality, affordable health care coverage can positively impact society in many ways. Not only can it help promote longevity, but it can also help lower America’s large deficit.
