Marketing strategies for small businesses have changed drastically in the last ten years. Newspaper and yellow page advertisements have become less effective and the search for their replacements is ongoing. The Internet, historically an avenue for businesses looking for national and international business, now offers opportunities for local businesses to attract local, regional and national customers. Mike Blumenthal, Local Search Consultant with blumenthals.com & localu.org will explore the options for local marketing on the Internet, compare the roles that Google+ Local, Facebook, Yelp and others play and take a deeper look at Google's local offerings and the role of reviews and social media in today’s marketplace.
