SEO vs. SEM and the importance of unification

"If you're not on the internet you don't exist" This may seem exaggerated, but it is not far from reality. The Internet is no longer the future, but the present and we find ourselves in an increasingly competitive market, where making a gap between the first search results seems like a real battle. And this is where we ask ourselves some questions such as: which strategy do I follow? do I do SEO or SEM? which is better? Although some SEOs and SEMs may rival each other, the truth is that they work better together.
