Local SEO for Small Businesses: Get Seen Online
How can my business be expected to compete with big brands?
How can I get my site to show up in those local results?
Why should I care about online reviews?
Where is Google getting that information from?

The Internet can be a rough place for small business owners. With the constant stream of information being thrown at your from news sites, blog articles, and sales people it can be impossible to know what's right! And hiring a big SEO company can cost a lot of money. How are you supposed to learn all of this and still have time to run your business?

Local SEO for Small Businesses will teach you just the most important things to make sure your business shows up when people look for your services online.

This workshop is a part of a new program at Portent to bring our enterprise level expertise in a friendly format to smaller businesses in the Greater Seattle area. Because it's new, it's a supreme deal, as similar events and workshops with this much information start at $500 and don't give you one-on-one time with a local SEO expert. This is also why the workshop size is limited to just 20 participants, so don't delay in signing up, space is very limited.

In this 4-hour workshop you will learn about:

Basic SEO - Learn the essentials for making sure your website is useful to both your customers and Google.

Local Search - Get into those local, map, and image results and control the information you see there.

Citation and Directories - Understand which directories to sign up for and their relationship to platforms like Google Maps, Apple Maps, Siri, Yelp, Facebook, and Foursquare.

Get Reviews - Create a strategy to gain real, legitimate reviews from your customers.

Using Social Media - Choose the social networks most relevant to your business so you can get the most from social strategies.

Basic Analytics - Measure the performance of your online strategy and how you can use this data to improve your business.

Whether you've never read a single thing on SEO or you've been struggling for years, this workshop is a chance for all small business owners to learn how to get in front of your customers on Google and Bing.
