First of all, thank you to everyone who attended our first official SEO School event. Our goal is to simply demystify basic local SEO and other search marketing concepts, and hopefully we we were able to do so with examples in our slides.
Also, thanks to our sponsor ThinkSEM Consulting for their support and help on answering questions regarding Pay-Per-Click management. They recently launched ThinkCRE8IVE which focuses on responsive design.
An additional thanks goes out to Michael Rose from the St. Louis Park Patch, and I can’t recommend them enough. From an SEO perspective, Patch in general is a huge content/link building/local search asset. If you’re on Twitter, feel free to connect with him.
To those who attended, Barb will be sending out a Survey Monkey to you. Definitely be honest with your answers. We can take it. I was definitely nervous for the first half of the presentation.
Any thoughts on the presentation? Go ahead an reply to this post. We want to hear from you.

Last month I mentioned that Barb and I are putting on our first SEO School event Thursday, March 22 at the St. Louis Park Marriott. We’re excited for it and now even have a sponsor.
Thanks to ThinkSEM Consulting, they’re covering some of the funds which helps us keep the $40 price down while still being able to provide you solid content in a great event space. Plus, there are free appetizers in a two-hour happy hour afterwards at the adjacent Kip’s Irish Pub.
Regarding our sponsor, here are a few services that Think offers:
We also emailed The St. Louis Park Patch to invite and plan to talk them up on why they are such an important resource for neighborhood news/event content, link building and local search. See if there’s a Patch editor in your neighborhood. Hopefully, they will also be hanging out during our happy hour to answer any questions you have about them.
We’ll link to the SEO School event again. If you’re either a beginner in SEO or know folks who wants to see search demystified, we would love it if you spread the word. Also, if you’re attending we will be using the Twitter hashtag #SEOschool.
