What Local U can do for Your Business
May 6th, 2013 by
With Local U just around the corner, I’m getting really excited about the opportunity it’s bringing to New Orleans. While there are so many things I love about the this city, it’s not necessarily known for its booming tech industry… yet. Local businesses could use a technological boost, and that’s exactly why I’m so eager to have Local U in our city. This informative event brings together some of the top players in local search to give entrepreneurs an introductory training session in Internet marketing.
Local University will take place at Tulane’s Lavin-Bernick Center on May 7, from 8:30 am – 1 pm, featuring tons of great speakers and topics. It’s extraordinary to have so many great minds come together to share their wisdom. Experts in the field such as Mike Blumenthal, Mary Bowling, Ed Reese, Aaron Weiche, and Mike Ramsey will all be there, as well as the lead Consumer Support staffer from Google Places.
I see local U as the perfect way for anyone who is managing their local online marketing, or managing those who do, to learn practical tools they can use for any current or future enterprise. There’s no better way to spread the word about your business in this day and age than online, and this conference gives you the know-how to do just that. I know a lot of people who have no idea how to clean up their reputation online or connect with clients through social media, and they often don’t know where to turn to harness these skills.
With sessions like Getting Social Online and Going Local with Google, individuals who have never previously taken an interest in search engine optimization, local search, or even social media can learn how simple techniques can maximize their online presence.

See you at the conference!
