Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) March 3, 2008
The Official Charlotte Search Engine Marketing Meetup has opened its March meeting to Charlotte area business owners and marketing professionals. On March 6 group members will meet to discuss recent changes and trends in the world of search engine marketing. Meetup.com organizer Keith Schilling, CEO of On Top Results, LLC, will be heading the event.
At the meeting group members will discuss pertinent SEO and SEM tactics to help attendees better utilize their websites. When asked who should attend the meeting, Mr. Schilling stated that "Search engine marketing is for everyone who has or will have a website. Without properly marketing to the search engines, a website might as well not exist. We want to teach Charlotte business owners and marketing professionals how to do this effectively."
Other leaders of the group include Corey Creed, CEO of Hippo IMT, an internet marketing educational service. David Kyle, Fred Sexton, and Roy Morejon will also be leading the group. Topics discussed at the meeting include pay-per-click advertising, Google conversion tracking, and social media marketing. Each of these strategies works together to create a winning search engine marketing campaign.
The group will help members understand which search engine marketing services are the most important and relevant to successfully marketing their site online. They will also keep members informed about changes in the rules of search engine optimization.
The Official Charlotte Search Engine Marketing Meetup meets once a month in the Charlotte area. Membership is free, and organizers encourage business owners and marketers throughout Charlotte to attend. Meetings are limited in the number of attendees, and attendance is on a first-come, first-served basis. Group members can RSVP online to show they will be attending the meeting.
When asked why someone would want to attend the meetup, Mr. Schilling stated, "Not only do we offer members the chance to stay current on the ever-changing world of internet marketing, but we also give them a chance to network with other Charlotte area professionals. In this way they can create a winning website while making the local contacts they need to succeed. Our goal is to provide face-to-face education about the necessity and intricacies of online marketing."
