The subject of today’s discussion will be the art of marketing and how we seem to take the same for granted. Remember, you must be selflessly selfish while giving away ad spots on your website. Otherwise, your client will give away the money during the first deal but might not renew the same due to negative results.
I won’t be polishing a non-existent shoe. Those web designers who are totally against the idea of blogging (believe me, there are a few who really won’t appreciate this post) can hop out of this discussion.
