Local University Spring 2012 [Cross-Posted from GetListed Blog]

Although my sparse posting schedule on here has unfortunately become the norm, the reason for the latest absence of posts has been that I’ve been putting together our Spring conference schedule for Local University with Mike Blumenthal, Ed Reese, and our other faculty.  I’m excited to announce that we’re now “open for business” with all of these events!

It’s safe to say that the feedback from all of our events the past two years has been overwhelmingly positive (check that link and see for yourselves), but a common request from the SEO community has been for a little more advanced content.  So I’m really excited to announce our Advanced workshop for SEO professionals and experienced local search marketers that will take place in Seattle on June 7.  Never before have so many Local Search experts been in one room at the same time, and it’ll be a great opportunity to pick all of our collective brains to get a leg up on your competition.

  • I’m really looking forward to GetListed Spokane. I can say without a doubt our agency wouldn’t be anywhere near what it is today without the knowledge gained and connections forged at Get Listed.

  • I really loved the new video on, David. It was very friendly. Wishing everybody good luck in Spokane!

  • Jim

    Does Local University ever come to the southeast?

  • Hi Jim,
    We were in Birmingham last year and are looking at New Orleans as a possible stop in 2012. I’ll be sure to post an update on our Fall/Winter schedule sometime later in the summer.

    Thanks for checking in!

    David, are there any plans for a California, preferably southern California events?

  • Hi Josh,
    We’re not likely to be in Southern California anytime soon due to the saturation of similar events down there (at least from the perspective of the business owner or beginning marketer). We are looking at Phoenix for later in the year, however, which would be reasonably close.
