Last night I presented at the Dallas Interactive Marketing and Internet SEO SEM Meetup on Meetup.com. I spoke on the topic of local search marketing.
It was a great group of folks. I had the pleasure of speaking with Paul Dumas of OptimizedLocalSearch.com, someone who has performed over 2500 Google Places listing setups and optimizations in the last year. Paul is a real Google Places Expert.
I made a presentation and added a bunch of silliness for shits and giggles. You can find the slideshare for my Local Search SEO for the Less Informed here.
I felt it was best to give folks the opportunity to ask questions during the presentation, since the pace of the presentation was very fast. I know what it is like to have to wait to make a comment or question only to bang your head later at the end of the meeting when you forget. We also answered questions after the meeting, had great feedback from the audience, and even continued conversations into the parking lot!
I left out allot of information, such as Conversion Optimization, Usability, and tons of other areas of small business internet marketing improvement.
Thanks for a great meeting.
I hope to see the attendees at the next DFWSEM.org meeting next Wednesday. We will be having Rob Garner, another DFWSEM.org Board of Directors Member, Chief at renowned marketing firm iCrossing, and Board of Directors Member for SEMPO speaking on Search and Social.
