Chicago SEO Company attends NW Burbs Home Show
It was a gamble for a business to business local internet marketing firm like WON Marketing to attend the Algonquin / Lake in the Hills Home & Business Expo 2012 – but we love supporting our community and we love teaching about Internet Marketing, so we decided to attend our closest trade show ever, less than 5 miles from our office!
On Saturday January 28th, 2012, WON Marketing enjoyed over 100 exhibitors with 1000’s of attendees. We ate great food from the free expo, from local establishments like Famous Daves, Morkes Chocolates and Jamba Juice. The event was fruitful from both a business perspective and family position.
WON Marketing found Scott Gallagher put his son the floor, and became a member of Tiger Koo’s Martial Arts in Algonquin. Here’s a video of Ashtyn Gallagher breaking wood! Tiger Koo’s Martial Art is a perfect example of a local business that simply is looking for new business, but is losing low hanging fruit right by the computer.
Check this out for yourself. Tiger Koo’s Martial Arts core is Tae Kwon Do, but a search for [tae kwon do in algonquin] yields NO results for TKMA and places their only competitor in the #2 spot. How is this possible for a local company to not be placed in the top results for a small town with 30,000 people? Is Google out for TKMA and favoring their competitor?
Well this post isn’t about that, but it demonstrates how a buzzing home show with over 100 local vendors investing their time and money to acquire new business and yet where 40% of American consumers are right now, the Internet, businesses like TKMA are missing out. If they don’t do anything, they could spending a lot of time at a lot of trade shows just to stay alive.
[important]It’s simple. Maybe not easy.
