Free Seminar hosted at Proforma Progressive Marketing’s office in Bakersfield, California during the lunch hour.
March 25, 2014 (Bakersfield, CA): Melih Oztalay, CEO of Smartfinds Internet Marketing (http://www.smartfindsmarketing.com) is hosted at Proforma Progressive Marketing’s (http://www.goproforma.com) Bakersfield, CA office from 12 Noon to 1 PM PST on April 2, 2014. The event will help businesses to better understand Local Store Marketing over the Internet in desktop and mobile search results.
Search engine and mobile search results are now the new yellow pages by displaying local results over national results. No matter how large or small your company may be, when it comes down to it – all business is local! Local consumers search for products and services based on their needs, not based on brands, using generic terms. The search results display businesses that match the search criteria within the communities where the local consumers lives and works. Local marketing takes advantage of this concept by marketing individual stores, offices, buildings and franchise locations locally.
The seminar will discuss the marketing process of pin-code verifying local business listings, managing the map listings with marketing materials, being found in search results, and actively managing customer ratings and reviews. Case studies will be included along with live examples in search results for businesses in the Bakersfield, CA area.
Carlin Jones, Marketing & Communications Director at Proforma Progressive Marketing, will be administering the seminar at the Bakersfield, CA office. Mr. Oztalay will be joining the event through GoToMeeting remotely from the SmartFinds Internet Marketing office in Birmingham, MI. This will help to show how today’s technologies can help bring people closer no matter where on the planet they may be located.
