In recent years, boxing has given up ground to a new combat sport, mixed martial arts. The overall idea remains the same: get two tough people in a ring and let them try to knock each other out, with high kicks, choke holds, arm bars and other types of moves now a standard part of the contest.
For fans of MMA, this just adds to the excitement. To those of us in the web design and Internet marketing industry, it makes for a good analogy. After all, the web is getting more complicated – and more competitive – than ever before. It isn't enough to just have a great website, blog, or even a search marketing plan these days; you have to have a mobile strategy, social platform, and so much more just to stay competitive and profitable.
