Things have been very busy growing our business at Powered by Search, but I wanted to update my readers that I will be speaking at SMX Toronto this upcoming April 9th 2010. If you’re attending, be sure to give me a shout before hand via email (dev at poweredbysearch.com) or twitter (@devbasu) and I’d be pleased to meet up for coffee or drinks.
Here’s a description of the panel:
Getting Local Business Listings Right:
Beyond Google, Yahoo! and Bing, there are thousands of local business directories, alternate search engines and alternate Internet connected devices changing the way people find your business. The explosive increase in smart phone use allows people to obtain location-specific information on demand. How do small businesses take advantage of these opportunities? How do you manage enterprise business listing issues? What tools are available to automate the hundreds of updates required when your address or hours of operation change? For any business that provides products or services to a local customer base, now is the time to get ahead of your competition by taking advantage of comparatively low (or no) cost business listings, geo-targeted ads and other marketing tools offered by local search engines. At this session discover the complex, rewarding world of local business listings.
