OOH! Google Places and local web search

OOH! Google Places and local web search

General

Big Big Design is a favorite Google Place

This week in Online Office Hours, we’re looking at Google Places, Google’s local search and business directory. It’s a valuable tool for any business or organization that has a local clientele, and it’s easy to use. We’ll talk about how to verify your listing, what to include in it, and how to encourage your patrons to post reviews.

Online Office Hours webinars are free, but you need to register online. Sign up now for tomorrow’s session, and while you’re thinking about it you might also join our mailing list to get reminders of upcoming webinars via email.

Webinar: Blogging for Business – April 27

Events

With so many kind of social media and online networks, is good ol’ blogging still useful for business? Yes! This webinar, intended for independent professionals and business owners, will cover the basics of why and how to create a blog for business, and then how to go beyond the basics to make something amazing. Why blog, how to start, where to find content, how to connect it with other marketing and business processes, and where to find help (especially free resources).

Presenter: Cynthia Closkey, President of Big Big Design

A few notes about this webinar: It will be a 45 minute seminar, including time for questions. I’ll be covering some of the same information from my session of the same name at Pittsburgh PodCamp 5, but updated for 2011.

How will this webinar compare with the course I’m teaching in May at CCAC, “Nonprofit Blogging for Profit“? Well, the CCAC course will be longer — three hours long — and will include hands-on application of some of the topics covered. And it will focus on special needs of nonprofits.
