In an effort to accommodate different user types, we're going to try a few different models for our Meetup. As before, we'll begin with a welcome (and pizza), move to a 20 to 30 minute talk, and then separate into different user groups. The groups will be dependent upon who attends, but will most likely be divided by Developer and User.
Our speaker will be Chris Moreno. Chris lives in Kennebunk and owns a business called My Local Leads. Chris will be giving a presentation on Local Search Engine Optimization (Local SEO) with a particular emphasis on Google Places (sometimes known simply as The Maps) and of course WordPress.
If you were ever curious about how Google decides which lucky businesses get to appear at the top of those Map listings (thus generating lots of phone calls), and more importantly what YOU can do to help your listing or those of your clients show up there, this Meet-Up is for you. Chris is the author of Winning the Local SEO Game: A Step-By-Step Guide for Contractors and has spoken all over the country on this subject.
If you'd like to give a talk (big or small), or there's a topic you'd like to hear talked about, please contact Stephen or Sam and we'll get you on the schedule!
