What Every Business Leader Should Know

Presented by GoAhead Marketing – Belfast’s Search Engine Optimisation Experts

With Guest Speaker, Tim Barlow of Attacat, Edinburgh’s Renowned Paid Search Specialists

Date: 16th October 2008 Location: Balmoral Hotel, Blacks Road, Belfast

Time: 9.30am - 12.30pm  Cost: 20

With rising oil prices, the volatile financial sector and the credit crunch, running any business these days is anything but straightforward. There is one opportunity that almost every business has to grow, however, and that is via the internet.

While almost every business has got a website, how many can actually say they have done everything possible to maximise their sites marketing and presence on the internet? In fact, how many actually know what can be done?

This seminar will give real, practical advice on how to use the internet to bring you more customers - whether you provide a service or sell physical products. In particular, we will be focusing on Google, the search engine the vast majority of people use.

The seminar will be split into two sessions:

Session 1 - Search Engine Optimisation Explained - and Why It Is So Important

  • Explain what Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is - and why it is so important

  • Explode some myths behind search engine optimisation and show you what not to do
