Reference Reading

Because change is so rapid, it's more important than ever to keep yourself current with the facets of internet marketing. It's also important to have a good basis for understanding of your business and the best way to reach your audience so that you aren't jumping at every bell and whistle just because they're shiny and new.

We've compiled a list of several books in our reference collection. If you have any books that you've read and think should be added to this list, please email SNB Consulting Services at sue@snbconsultingservices.ca the title and author of the book so we can upload it to this page.
