Last week I was lamenting to my friend +John Chvatal the plight of small business owners in my town who need to get found but don't have the wherewithall to do it. That very same day, he alerted me to a case study done by +Debi Davis et al about putting Eagle, CO on the map and she followed it up with an excellent Hangout on Air in which she, as well as other people involved in the program, talked about what it took to put a town on the map so that business owners could increase their chances of getting found in Google search.
Later this week, I'll be presenting this info to our chamber of commerce and looking for their collaboration in putting our town on the map but I'm prepared to move ahead without them if they don't get the vision. I'm very passionate about supporting the small business owners who serve us throughout the winter and I'd like to help them get more than their fair share of business while the summer sun is shining.
I'm in the process of developing a #searchengineoptimization workflow that can be triggered with a smartphone — something all business owners seem to have these days even if they don't have or don't want a computer. Stay tuned for more details as I continue to deploy Google Plus Pages using the Google My Business program supported by great middleware like +Friends+Me and microsites like +Tumblr or full-blown +WordPress sites. #googlemybusiness #seo #seomarketing
