Editors Note: Photos and a video are included with this Press Release.
Sacramento, CA (Marketwire) November 10, 2009 -- The Internet's expansion into popular use had a drastic impact on culture and commerce. Applications such as near-instant communication by electronic mail (e-mail), text based discussion forums, and the World Wide Web changed the way we do business. The commercial Internet is now 15 years old and one of the pioneers of Internet marketing, Dr. Ralph Wilson, shares that anniversary. Web Marketing Today is celebrating its 15th year of demystifying Internet marketing for small and medium businesses.
Dr. Wilson's first business venture back in 1995 was designing and building websites for small and medium businesses, but he soon found that these entrepreneurs needed help to market their businesses online. At that time web marketing was unknown territory.
Web Marketing Today features practical, how-to articles written by subject experts with hands-on experience. The site contains more than 100 video interviews with expert speakers at major Internet marketing conferences. The content of the site focuses on what people are actually adopting online and how a small business can implement and profit from these ideas and tools. The goal is to give readers practical, how-to advice they can put into use immediately.

Dr. Wilson's Web Marketing Tips for Small Business Owners
Get a professionally designed website. Your site needs to present the best possible face to the world. It's the 'store front' of your business today. A good website builds credibility and trust. Use a content management system so that you can change and add content to the site yourself.
Make sure the site content is optimized for search engines. If people can't find you then you are missing out on lots of business. Many web designers still do not offer SEO (Search Engine Optimization). Title tags are the most important factor and the content on the page has to align with your title tags.
Start an email newsletter or a blog that people can sign up for by email. Use this vehicle to stay in touch with people and build a relationship with them. Use an email newsletter service -- they are not expensive and make it very easy to do yourself.
