This group is geared towards professional internet marketers, in house SEO's, and business owners who are actively managing their own online presence.
It is not geared towards those brand new to the industry, but beginners are still always welcome. For a local group geared more towards beginners, try this one.
What Will Meetings Be About?
Here's a tentative list of presentation ideas for 2012:
SEO 201 - External Ranking Factors
Local Search for business owners, developers, and SEO's
Tools to run your SEO Business
Ethical issues in SEO - What works vs. what's "permitted" by Google
Using Google Chrome (and other SEO Tools)
Who will run the meetings?
Scott Hendison will plan and present the material at most of the meetings. Scott is the CEO of Search Commander, Inc. and founder of SEO Automatic tools. He's a founding board member of SEMpdx, speaks regularly at national search marketing conferences like Pubcon, and has over 10 years of experience in search
Who Should Come to Meetings?
Most of the material covered will be for marketers and business owners with an intermediate to expert level of knowledge about search.
This group is currently made up of a potpourri of business owners, service providers and marketers, all with varying degrees of knowledge, and beginners should try joining this group instead.
How Much Will Meetings Cost?
I'm targeting about $20 per person, which will include a private meeting room and either some snacks or lunch. As attendance grows, more food and even beverages can be included too, and I'll always provide top notch information and discussion.
