Focusing on creativity and innovation as the primary drivers of entrepreneurial success, current and aspiring entrepreneurs will gather at TiECon Midwest 2010, where Melih Oztalay will discuss Local Business Marketing on the Internet using Local Business Listings.

Organized by Detroit Chapter of TiE (Talents, Ideas, Enterprise) at The Henry in Dearborn, Mich. on Oct. 28 and 29, 2010, the theme of the conference is Business Karma 3.0 – Create. Connect. Collaborate.

The Internet has created marketing tools since 2007 for businesses that are dependent upon the local market for their revenue. It does not make a difference if the business is a large national company with stores in local markets or a small florist. As the traditional marketing channels suffer various levels of decline, local business listings are experiencing growth as the preferred interactive yellow pages of the 21st century. Mr. Oztalay’s presentation on Local Business Marketing with Local Business Listings will help businesses capitalize on this growth by providing more effective ways of using the technology to improve local marketing results.

Melih Oztalay states, “The benefits to local business is incredible by being available to their local customers when the customer is looking for them through web searches, mobile searches while driving around town with their mobile device, or through mobile applications. The fact that the business can also update their offers anytime gives a local business the ability to adapt to market changes. I’m excited to be able to make this information available to the attendees of TieCon Midwest 2010.”

Melih Oztalay has over fifteen years experience with Internet and digital services in developing strategies that utilize all facets of the World Wide Web. As a Internet marketing agency, SmartFinds Internet Marketing’s major focus is to develop multi-directional marketing campaigns and use all aspects of the Internet.
