Looking back at GetListed Local University Spokane

Filed in Conferences/Educ. by Matt McGee on February 7, 2010 2 Comments

“Fantastic.” “Really great.” “Excellent.” “Very helpful.”

Those are the short versions of the feedback I received from speaking with four attendees after last week’s GetListed.org Local University Spokane seminars. And I feel the same way. It was an excellent day of local search marketing education, and the fact that this was a first-time event is almost mind-boggling. It just went so well. And to get reps from both Google and Bing to show up? Even better.

What stands out for me more than anything was the quality of the discussion and questions from the audience. It’s funny … at some of the bigger conferences, the Q&A time is sometimes the worst part of a session. But in Spokane, the Q&A sessions were all really good. We had smart audiences.

The folks from Klundt Hosmer, one of the sponsors, have shared their thoughts on the day. And here are a few of the tweets from attendees:

mchlldnn: Thanks to #localu crew for a fantastic seminar in Spokane today. Can’t wait to apply what we learned!

reilly3000: #LocalU what a great conference. You guys should beg getlisted.org to come to your city. Great stuff on local search and sm for all levels

Menkema: Getlisted.org’s conference has been incredibly helpful. Thnx @Google, @Ed_Reese & @mattmcgee #localu

I took some photos both during our low-key dinner gathering the night before Local U., and during the morning seminar. Here’s that slideshow.

You can find more photos on the Launchpad web site, too.

Plans are already underway for the next Local U. and I, for one, can’t wait.
