Point of clarification…this is actually our THIRD conference–are they starting to blend together already for you? 😉
Oops…wrote this in the wee hours…as I was thinking about my “expanded” presentation.
I was totally impressed with your presentation today. Thank you for coming to Cleveland to share your wisdom.
If, per chance, you find yourself in a mood where you might be willing to take on another client (me, here in Cleveland), please give me a call.
Good luck guys! I hope this is a really good one. Will love to hear how it goes.
Great presentation this morning in Cleveland! Thanks for sharing your wealth of knowledge. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a chance to speak with you one-on-one but as a fellow “old-timer” in the local search industry, I was very impressed by the quality of the information shared with the group!
Keep up the great work!
loved the Cleveland #LocalU conference….loved meeting you finally in person – along with David and Matt too! Champs was a great setting for our after-conference chats and SEO discussions and I’d love to attend your “proposed” Advanced LocalU too…if that ever comes to pass!
will blog about same later this weekend…but as I “got” a couple of tips from same, the day was a total success for me — and for my clients too!
Loved the presentation Mike. Always enjoy hearing your insights. Great meeting you in person too! – Angela
