The dust has settled and Local University Twin Cities is in the books. Thursday was a jam packed day of Internet marketing information, tips, data, tools, how-to’s and more from a fantastic panel of local search, SEO, analytics and social media experts.
I had the pleasure of attending the first Local University put on by GetListed.org in Spokane, Washington on February 4th, 2010. This one day event, provided a fantastic amount of local search, SEO, social media and other Internet marketing information to over 150 attendees looking to have a better grasp on how they can be more visible online.
I was very fortunate to get to speak at the Buffalo, MN Chamber of Commerce Quarterly Luncheon today. I presented on some ideas to help a small business website succeed, search engine optimization (SEO) and web analytics. I think I only put one person to sleep and the group had a lot of great Internet marketing questions in the follow-up.

Last week we launched the Blackwater Coffee Company & Cafe website. While the web design project was small in size on the surface, but its part of a very big service we are rolling out.
