Small business owners know the importance of networking, you can find them at the chamber meetings, offering the use of their facilities for the betterment of the community, offering their time to non-profits. Now lets take that networking energy online to help drive new customers to our business through networking and website support. Google is insisting on PREMIUM website content in order to earn generic listings and as a small business owner, we struggle to find the time to create such content and pay for search engine optimization support. This meet-up is being formed to help the small business under $10,000,000 in sales who sells services or products direct from their website. Our hope is to create a forum where you can find Google defined related websites to link to and find related quality websites who will link to you. • Are you grappling with your ability to have an online presence? How is your website? Are you dealing with the latest penguin / panda updates? Do you understand the SEO involved in developing a good website for search engines? • Would you like to have a place to turn to discuss website design/SEO? • Does expanding and develop relationships with other businesses (anywhere in the USA) interest you? • Where do we find those companies that we need to link back to us? • Do you want to build an online network with other business and learn from other businesses as well. • Will collaboration save you time and money? We hope that this meet-up group will facilitate such online relationships and offer you a place to come for the following (as the group grows this list can be expanded): • Gain a better understanding of search engine optimization • Find websites who will link to your web pages Not with a plain link. Instead we think offering an article or tip that will lay groundwork for visitors to learn more about your linked site as well as send visitors to your site from a “googled valued site location”. • Web design discussions • Down the road we hope to showcase member Companies who have contributed to our group and whom we may indeed do business with. Until we find enough members we will meet ½ hour twice a month online via gotomeeting session (once at 10 am EST and once at 5:00pm EST). Initially there will be no preplanned speakers, just a sharing of dialog as to what this group should become for all members and how we can help each other. Get in on the ground floor of a new way of networking. Low time commitment with great payoffs in search engine rankings. As a new group, we can form how we want this group to evolve. The member must be a business owner who sells products or services only in the USA, or an employee or subcontractor in charge of the approving webcontent for the business. The website must be established for more than 1 year and the member should be willing to contribute as well as take away from others group. This group is not for affiliate marketing sites or directories. The first 3 months will be free to all members at that time we can better evaluate the administration effort required to track members commitment to the group and expect to charge a $10.00 fee every 6 months for group administration. The mission is to expand our individual website knowledge, expand our company connections (local or not), expand the number of quality websites linking to members websites, collaborate with others, show our expertise for others to learn from and to both grow individually and as a group. Hope you will join us! With your application to join, include a business description and a link to your website.
