Free Seminar hosted at Proforma Progressive Marketing’s office in Bakersfield, California during the lunch hour.
March 25, 2014 (Bakersfield, CA): Melih Oztalay, CEO of Smartfinds Internet Marketing (http://www.smartfindsmarketing.com) is hosted at Proforma Progressive Marketing’s (http://www.goproforma.com) Bakersfield, CA office from 12 Noon to 1 PM PST on April 2, 2014. The event will help businesses to better understand Local Store Marketing over the Internet in desktop and mobile search results.
Search engine and mobile search results are now the new yellow pages by displaying local results over national results. No matter how large or small your company may be, when it comes down to it – all business is local! Local consumers search for products and services based on their needs, not based on brands, using generic terms. The search results display businesses that match the search criteria within the communities where the local consumers lives and works. Local marketing takes advantage of this concept by marketing individual stores, offices, buildings and franchise locations locally.
The seminar will discuss the marketing process of pin-code verifying local business listings, managing the map listings with marketing materials, being found in search results, and actively managing customer ratings and reviews. Case studies will be included along with live examples in search results for businesses in the Bakersfield, CA area.
Carlin Jones, Marketing & Communications Director at Proforma Progressive Marketing, will be administering the seminar at the Bakersfield, CA office. Mr. Oztalay will be joining the event through GoToMeeting remotely from the SmartFinds Internet Marketing office in Birmingham, MI. This will help to show how today’s technologies can help bring people closer no matter where on the planet they may be located.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.
