Hey Everyone! Welcome to another episode of the Digital Marketing Dive Podcast. I’m Shawn Swaim the Chief Rain Maker at Big Head Digital Media and the  self-proclaimed king of the Internet. With me as always is Seth Goldstein, the Chief Web Geek at Big Head Digital Media.

We have a great episode for you today! Today we’re going to talk about how FREE is NEVER FREE.

  • When someone offers to do your site for free, there is always a catch
  • It might be as simple as them needing the experience
  • But it could lead to more of a headache than it’s worth
  • Beyond sites, there’s also marketing considerations “My nephew will post on my Facebook for free” 
  • Does your nephew understand your audience?

This week  we’re doing general apps and sites that intrigue us.

Shawn:   GTMetrix
Seth: LinkedIn Learning (Not cheap, but worth it when you get LinkedIn Premium)
