    Hi Barbara, perfect timing. My Chicago seminar will not be recorded. You could visit my personal Website and read about my ebook on this topic.

    I am a score counselor in Lafayette,Louisiana. I am in the process of building a website now. I would like to know how to get noticed on the web without paying high pay per click fees. I don’t live near Chicago, therefore, I cannot go to the seminar. I would appreciate if you would tell me how I can get that information. thanks, Barbara Guidry

    Good to know that there are some seminars and forums related to the topic of increasing the website traffic. This will surely help those who are in need of inspiration and assistance.

  5. I’m amazed when I see training on these same topics that cost $299.00 (for a teleseminar) and up! You’ll learn what you need to know about getting found online at this seminar for $60.00! I hope to see you there.

    Greg, thanks for your comments. The last part of my Shameless seminar is “Find Time to Do All This.”

  7. As a SCORE counselor and online marketing consultant, I would highly recommend attending this seminar if you are in the Chicago area. Years of research supports the high returns gained through a persistent online presence.

    One word of advice, many of the tactics used to market online are “free” but require “time” for tasks such as copy writing, social networking, IT and graphic design (i.e., human resources). As all business owners know, time is money. Don’t forget to include a line item in your marketing budget for either your time, your staff’s time or resources for outsourcing the work.
