The expert webinar series devoted to local search.


An advanced webinar series for local search professionals.

We deep-dive into a different topic each webinar and invite a panel of local search experts to share their knowledge and debate their viewpoints.


Some of the biggest, baddest names in local search.

We have 3-4 knowledgeable local experts join us for each webinar. We hand pick the panelists for each event so we have a different group of subject-matter specialists on each webinar.


As often as we can!

We aim to run one webinar per month, usually on a Wednesday and typically at 1pm ET. Sign up for updates below to avoid missing out!

How Much?

All webinars are 100% free.

We know it's time consuming and expensive to attend search conferences, so we bring the very best speakers to you and you don't have to spend a cent or leave the comfort of your home or office.
