Local search has taken the search engines by storm. A huge amount of small businesses including pizza shops, dentists, nightclubs, dry cleaners and car dealerships are now using local search to create a presence on the web. This has taken the place of the Yellow Pages and for good reason. Local search gives you all the tools you need to make a decision about where to purchase, how to get there and even links to the establishment’s website.

Look at the power local search provides you, the customer:

  • Interactive maps and directions from your home.
  • Streetview – see the neighborhood your about to travel to.
  • Reviews of the business.
  • Links to menus, printable coupons and social networking.
  • Get the search results right on your phone.
  • And much more….

As small business grows it’s reach on the web, they will need people who know how to submit and manage their listings. The information has to be updated and fresh for customers to find them. These search engine techniques are not just for large companies anymore. Not having a updated presence on the web can mean lost business. Where will they find the right people to help them manage these tasks?

The Internet Marketing Training Center will help teach the skills that today’s savvy marketers will need to help small business stay ahead. This kind of technology will increase the demand for jobs in Internet marketing management. This is a whole new world opening up right in front of your eyes… are you ready to take it on?

I’ll bet by now there isn’t anyone on Earth that hasn’t seen a Youtube video.

People watch over 2 billion videos a day on Youtube and every minute over 24 hours of footage is uploaded. Not only is Youtube a fun place to just hang out and watch your favorite vids, it’s a great place to learn stuff. If I want to learn to run a certain software program or even how to repair my car, I search Youtube for the answers. It’s much easier to watch a video than to try and follow along in some document. The people who submit videos to Youtube come from all walks of life and varied age groups including 10 year old kids submitting skateboarding tricks to serious college students making independent films. But one group of video makers are growing faster than all of the rest…. companies.

From Target to Apple to BlendTec, companies large and small are using videos to market their products and services. Videos can create a brand name, answer customer service issues, advertise specials and just plain entertain the millions of people a day watching on Youtube. Video marketing has become one of the most cutting edge and powerful tools in a company’s strategy to advertise themselves and they pay good money to make and market these videos. This opens up a huge opportunity for you to get in on the ground floor of a new career field.
