Interested in learning more about modern marketing strategies and how they can help your small business thrive? Pool and spa retailers, builders and service pros are invited to attend the Local Business Marketing Summit, a free two-day online event for local business owners June 27 to 28. Hosted by the Local Marketing Institute, a company that specializes in marketing training for local business owners, the event will feature 18 sessions that cover key aspects of local digital marketing, including local search, reviews and ratings, websites, email marketing, social media and online advertising.

The summit brings together more than a dozen nationally recognized digital marketing experts who will share actionable marketing strategies for local businesses. Speakers include top industry experts such as Joy Hawkins, Dennis Yu, Myles Anderson, Bernadette Coleman, Phil Rozek, Marcus Miller, Conrad Saam and many others, and are regular contributors to Forbes, Wall Street Journal, Search Engine Land, Social Media Examiner, SMX, Moz and Google My Business.

“We have one goal with the summit: to equip local businesses with digital marketing tactics that will help them attract more customers, build customer loyalty and grow their business,” says LMI Founder and CEO Eric Shanfelt. Shanfelt is a 25-year digital veteran and has served as the senior VP of digital at several companies including Penton Media and HarperCollins Christian Publishing.

“The summit sessions focus on practical, effective and proven digital marketing strategies that any business can implement,” he adds.
