I’d like thank everyone who took the time to attend our “Getting Found Online, The Right Way” presentation on April 12, 2017, as well as for all of the positive feedback afterward.
As promised, we wanted to make the key points of the presentation available online afterward, to encourage Bozeman BPW members (and our other website visitors) to take control of their online presence and improve their ability to get their business found.
(Forthcoming – These will be added soon.)
