February Internet Marketing Seminar in North Carolina

Ron Jones of Symetri is organizing an Internet marketing seminar in Greensboro, North Carolina on February 23, 2007. According to Ron, the seminar will be "geared towards less technical people," and will provide high level best practices recommendations on how to "plan, execute and measure a successful Internet marketing campaign."

The seminar will feature speakers from a variety of Internet marketing agencies, and Ron is hoping to secure a representative from at least one of the major search engines. More information is available here.

The seminar will cost $150, including breakfast lunch, and is scheduled to provide a basic overview of Paid (sponsored) Search, Organic SEO, email marketing, and site design. The current session descriptions can be found here.

Ron informed SEW that they plan on having a similar one day seminar in August in Charlotte, NC, followed by future events in Atlanta, GA and Raleigh, NC. Especially for anyone in the Southern U.S. area interested in learning more about Internet and Search Engine Marketing, as well as networking with others in the industry, this could be well worth the time.

Ron intends to ask attendees at this first seminar in the series to give feedback for future, more intensive, breakout sessions that will drill deeper into best practices.
