Pubcon Local Services Marketing Conference
Dec 22, 2020

We are proud to announce our first conference dedicated to Local Services Marketing topics. We will go beyond just search to help small businesses thrive in this highly competitive environment. Held online January 20-21, 2021.

At Pubcon, we have always believed in Full Stack Marketing. Putting all your eggs in the search basket can expose you to the whims of the search algo. That said, we know that many local business can be made or broken by their performance in local search. So this conference will be more focused on small and medium sized business that have a local business that can only thrive with quality local marketing.
