“If people can’t find your site, it doesn’t matter how cool it is.” – Phil Buckley
With more than half a billion websites on the Internet and 43 percent of the top million in the United States -- how can you be found? Not just by friends and acquaintances, but by potential clients who want the exact services you can provide.
Join us and let Phil Buckley tell you how to maximize your ability to get found on the Web. And don’t come fearing a conversation that only IT experts can understand. Even though Phil can easily discuss marketing in binary code, he will make the über-geek jabber comprehensible to even the non-techies among us. RSVP at http://www.meetup.com/ica-triangle
