Streamed to the Social Media Club of Bahrain

To help celebrate National Small Business Week in the United States I hosted a Livestream webcast where I shared some tips for local businesses. The event was attended by over a thousand folks live and many more that gathered in 12 satellite in person events – from Santa Ana, CA to New Berlin CT in the US and in places around the world like Bahrain.

One of the most interesting things about the event is that showcased one of the ways you can use technology to create engaging events and reach people wherever they are. In a way it was the ultimate, online with offline kind of event that was the topic of the presentation.

Upward to 90% of our prospects are going online to search for products and services they intend to acquire offline locally. Smart marketers must adapt to this behavior by employing tools that make it easier for local shoppers to engage once they find you online in their town.

Enjoy this replay of the event.
