A couple summers ago, I took an online course in Social Media and one of the main stars was Laura Betterly. Recently, she developed her own course, Mobile Local Fusion, http://bit.ly/LauraBetterly that brings Mobile technology to the forefront of the online world.
If you are business owner, this course is a must. As mobile media continues to develop in terms of smart phones alone (think ipads etc., as well) business are scrambling in order to keep up with the changes in order to continue to provide their clients with the services they need. Advertising has flipped from mailings and phone book listings, to listing online. Did you know that with your smart phone you can click a phone link in your internet search and it can dial the number for you. How cool is that!
As the big players like Google are controlling the waves online, they also have the technology to send you local businesses to your phone when you do a search, regardless of where you are. The satellites will pick up on your location and give you the most relevant business for the terms you enter into your search.
Laura Betterly's Mobile Local Fusion, http://bit.ly/LauraBetterly provides the necessary means to to get your business listed at the top of the search rankings. Who wants to be listed on page 2? And if you are on the top, are you sure you do not want to risk losing this spot. So all are involved here.
From setting up your google place page to other major search engines like yahoo and bing, to providing options for client retention, outsourcing work and of course keeping you on the 1st page of the search engine. If you think about it, how many businesses ask you for a testimonial, or to write a review for them online? This is just one of the many suggestions made in Mobile Local Fusion, http://bit.ly/LauraBetterly that will provide the needed online juice to keep your business working well.
From my own perspective, I have been through the course when it first opened and have seen my sites come out on page one. I live in Camillus, NY, which is the home of the West Genesee Wildcat Lacrosse team, who has for years been on or near the top of the country rankings. So when you do a search for Camillus Lacrosse, one would think you would come up with the wildcats etc., however following Laura Betterly's course, it is my lacrosse website, BasicLacrosse.com that shows up instead.
Regardless of whether you are a big business or a small mom and pop shop in the village, you can get yourself to the top to be ranked. I have received at least half a dozen phone calls recently just from people doing searches on their phones or online for services I offer. The way I see it, the price of the course was paid for with just one of the clients. The modules help with customer retention will help in regards to the lifetime value of the client. Being able to continue to bring in clients this way will show you that her course is extremely underpriced and comes with my highest recommendation.
So go check out the video that our other friend, Ryan Deiss put together that gives a little more insight into the course at http://bit.ly/LauraBetterly where he will take you inside Mobile Local Fusion a bit more.
