Small Business Owners Get the Competitive Edge at Free Online Marketing Forums in August

We’re all over the map in August as the Small Business Forum brings online marketing expertise to communities across the country. We’ve been to Knoxville, Tennessee; Springfield, Missouri; and Canonsburg, Pennsylvania, so far this month, and #SBFlive is making 4 more stops in August to help small business owners maximize their online presence and drive customers to their websites and business locations:

Forum attendees take away practical website, SEO, eCommerce, mobile, and social media tips to help them increase their visibility online and optimize their marketing efforts. Attendees also enjoy a free ticket to the local Tour golf event—or in the case of the Jersey City forum, a free ticket to The Barclays Tournament on the PGA TOUR!

“We’re excited to have an event focused on what really works when marketing online so that small business owners in the Omaha area can harness the power of the Internet to succeed,” said Josh Carney, manager of design services at, who’ll lead the educational session in Omaha. “We have best practices from working with millions of business owners every day who are addressing real-world challenges of marketing online and through social channels. We expect a lively dialogue covering a range of key, timely topics that small business owners face when tackling this increasingly important digital opportunity.”

Plus, we’re giving away a website makeover at the Framingham (near Boston) forum! One lucky small business owner at the August 29 forum will win a website makeover, which includes an in-depth evaluation of their current website; consultation with a website expert; new custom website design and copy; and hosting, marketing, monitoring, and SEO consulting services for 1 year to help encourage Web traffic and lead generation.
