| Joseph B Martin Conference Centre, Boston, MA

Local marketing signals are getting increasingly crowded – no one is handing out free links, social media is full of noise, and AdWords is getting really expensive. What do we have left? Engagement. In a world where Google is attempting to mimic human behaviour an actual ranking signal could be real engagement from your customers. In this talk, Dana will review how to build a marketing strategy by planning your tactics around your local customers, and how to show Google that you’re a thriving business that deserves those great rankings.
