Please Be My Guest at Patch.com’s Main Street U Summit
Frank Felker Selected As Panelist For Alexandria Online Marketing Summit
I’m very pleased to announce that Patch.com has asked me to be a panelist discussing online marketing success for small businesses at their inaugural Main Street U Summit, here in Old Town Alexandria, next Thursday November 7, 2012 from 8:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. – and that I can get you into the event at no charge!
Patch.com is a nationwide company with a hyper-local focus. They are basically the online equivalent of the old neighborhood newspaper. From an advertising standpoint, their sole purpose is to connect local consumers with local businesses, which means their business model is directly in alignment with mine.
I have written previously about my positive feelings regarding Patch.com and how I believe every local business should consider adding them to their marketing mix.
In addition to their advertising and content sharing capabilities, Patch.com is also a powerful Local SEO platform. I frequently come across their listings on the front page of local Google search results for a variety of vertical industries.
This Main Street U Summit is the first produced by Patch.com anywhere in the country. The intent is to give local business owners an introduction to online marketing and social media along with specific tips and tools that will help them leverage the power of these incredible marketing channels.
Best of all, Patch has given me a promotional code which you can use to register for the event at no charge!

The panel discussion I’ll be a part of will run for about 45 minutes starting at 8:30 so be sure to get there early if you want to catch it!
