Chances are if SEO is fit for you before, it’s an even better fit for you now. If you were doing search engine optimization as part of your marketing strategy in the past, then I would add to that SEO plan today because right now is a time to go after a bigger piece of that pie. As the pie shrinks you need a bigger piece to be just as successful as you were before.
