You won’t be hearing me refer to “GetListed.org Local University” anymore. It’s not that the local/small business workshops are finished … quite the contrary. They’re alive and well, and operating under a new name:
The link there is to the new website, LocalU.org, which includes some more background in this blog post by Mike Blumenthal.
All of this is happening due to SEOmoz’s recent acquisition of GetListed.org — which didn’t include the traveling workshops that we’ve been doing since February 2010.
So, the core group of Local U participants (myself included) has formed a new company and we’ll continue offering our local/small business marketing workshops throughout the year.
Upcoming Local U Workshops
We’ve started posting a schedule for the early part of the year: LocalU Events. We’ll be in Austin and Corpus Christi, Texas, early next month and then in Baltimore in early March.
If you know of small business owners that can use some help with their online marketing — local/maps visibility, on-page SEO, reviews, social media, analytics and more, please let them know about our workshop.
Also, when we get to Baltimore, one of our events will be Local University Advanced, which is aimed more at local marketers or companies of any size that are already pretty well-versed in the basics of local marketing. If that’s you, save some money with this discount code when you register:

On behalf of the Local U team, I hope to see you at one of our events in 2013!
