Presentation Details

Local Search Expert Panel

This expert panel brings the latest information to help businesses succeed in the local space. From small and medium-sized businesses to brands and multi-location enterprise, everyone seeks to extend their reach and strengthen their digital footprint. Our panelists will examine and discuss mobile, search, and location data to do just that.

With 88% of all “near me” searches taking place via mobile, and 63% of PPC ads clicks coming from mobile devices, it demands to be addressed. And while a large number of brick-and-mortar locations are literally ignoring mobile, attending the Local Search Expert Panel will ensure you won’t be one of them!

Panelists will share real-world examples of issues faced by client businesses and the solutions that got them where they needed to be. So whether your business targets one area or literally thousands, you will leave the presentation with an understanding of challenges and demands, plus the strategies that get locations found.

Join moderator Bernadette Coleman and panelists Danielle Hanson, Chris MarentisHillit Meidar-Alfi, and Brad McCormick.
