4 Reasons Why Getlisted.org Local U Will Rock Your Web Marketing World

In honor of the Getlisted.org Local University seminar series coming to Syracuse next week presented by Syracuse.com and The Post-Standard (the 5th Local U that Advance and our local affiliated sites and newspapers have helped present), I thought I’d take a few minutes to outline the top four reasons why local businesses within a 250 mile radius have scored a winning Lotto ticket to have this event come to town.

The Rockstars Of The Industry Come To You

Getlisted is an incredible program where the top online marketing experts in the business- some of the major speakers at conferences like SMX Advanced and Search Engine Strategies—come to your local area.  They teach you in an intimate setting- one where you can ask questions and interact directly with the “faculty”. Members of Getlisted’s expert line-up of speakers and teachers include co-founder David Mihm (the architect of the highly influential “Local Ranking Factors” survey), Mike Blumenthal (known in the industry as “Professor Maps” for his expertise on Google Local search), as well as top experts including Mary Bowling, Will Scott, Aaron Weiche, John Carcutt and Matt McGee (look them up- every one is recognized as a leader of the search and social industry). Representatives from Google Places and Bing Local also join the faculty to help local businesses understand– directly from the search engines themselves- how best to take advantage of their local products and services.

Information Presented In  A Way You Can Understand

The Getlisted crew won’t boggle your mind with technical concepts and terms like Canonicalization and Robots.txt.  Unlike many seminars on SEO and Social Media, the Local University series is designed specifically with the busy local business owner in mind.  Everything is outlined in easy-to-grasp terms that will leave you knowing what you need to know, not overwhelmed with impressive techno-talk.

Powerful Tips You Can Put To Work Right Away

When you walk out of a Getlisted.org seminar, you’re armed with tips and strategies that you can put to work for your business that day.  The in-depth, four hour program is designed to help you get customers now, not sound impressive at cocktail parties later.

Great Training At A Price That Lets You Build Your Business Without Mortgaging It First

Exposure to an in-depth program like this via seminar or conference could typically set you back thousands of dollars (and that’s not counting travel costs to New York, San Francisco or L.A. to get a program of this caliber). The price of the Getlisted.org seminar is only $129 for either a morning or afternoon session. And just for reading this post you can get a special price of $99 to attend next week’s session.  Interested?
