    Recently we headed out to Austin, TX for SEM for SMB , an event focused on how small businesses can leverage the Internet to grow their business with techniques such as search engine optimization and search engine marketing. HubSpot's own VP Marketing, Mike Volpe, started off the second day with a presentation on how to craft an Inbound Marketing strategy that combines SEO with blogging and social media for the greatest marketing results. Below is the video (40 minutes) and the slides can be downloaded from .
