"Be Findable! The Small Business Guide To Location Social Media"
Where are you?
That’s not a metaphysical question. Are you and your business findable? Are you being found?
Way back in 2007 Google told us that 73% of online searches were for local goods and services. Sure, you can find out a plumber in South Africa, if you want to. But most folks want to find a local business if they want a plumber, a restaurant, a realtor or even a web designer.
There are many sites that have been created or have adapted themselves to accommodate this need for local search. EduCyber has spent many hours exploring this phenomenon and we will share our findings in a seminar on May 27 from 11:30 to 1:00.
What will you get from this seminar?
- Concrete steps you can take to enhance your local presence on the internet.
- How to: a) Create local accounts at Google and Bing b) Keep those accounts fresh (and at the top)
- Wisdom to make decisions about whether and how to engage in Yelp, FourSquare, Gowalla, Loopt, BrightKite and other location-based social networking sites.
- Your business website will get noticed by more potential customers!
