The last time I gave a bro-sis marketing update was from the great time we had presenting in Madison in May. Well, we’re back and we’ll be doing something different this time, right here in the Minneapolis area.
On Friday, Oct. 9th and Saturday, Oct. 10th we will be giving a two-day workshop on local search and social media, specifically for photographers. Just as in Madison, the extremely talented photographer Lew Everling from the Indianapolis area will be joining us. Stay tuned in for further updates.
This workshop will be different. Attendees will have their own laptops in-hand literally ready to go. We’ll be guiding them to create local search and social media profiles on the spot, and truly understand why. We’ll also be providing strategies and tactics for them to use on their own.
Lew, Heather and I will all be in contact to finalize everything. Here’s what we have so far for detailed topics.
- Google Maps
- Yahoo Local
- Bing (MSN) Local
- Google Alerts (online reputation management)
- User Ratings and Reviews
- Facebook (profiles, ads and public pages)
For the venue, it’s looking like a hotel conference center TBD. Considering this is a two-day event, it allows out-of-metro attendees to book a room at a reduced rate. It’s narrowed down to a few, mostly centered by the Mall of America and a Minneapolis LRT stop. This may also include a reduced Saturday night stay for those interested in spending a whole weekend enjoying the MOA or a half hour light-rail ride to downtown Minneapolis.
We haven’t determined an attendee price yet, but it will definitely be in the lower three digits. If you know of any photographers who would be interested, definitely let them know. From experience, we take the BS out of search marketing and social media and go out of our way to help.
More to come soon. 🙂
