In this breakout session, you will learn the types of local search results and which industries they apply to. You will also learn what the most important contributing factors are to getting in the top three (Local 3 Pack) and how to approach them for your business.

Some of the key areas discussed will be:

  • Google My Business
  • NAP Consistency

  • Position Zero


Meet Jim Komara, PALO Creative

Jim began launching websites in the late 1990s when the primary way to find a site was using directories like Yahoo. Shortly after starting his first web design business, Google came on the scene and suddenly customers were all vying for the number one spot on search engine results. Jim started writing computer games and math programs in high school. A veteran of the United States Army, he served in Operation Desert Storm during the Gulf War as an Intelligence Analyst, building computer databases. After returning home, he worked as a real estate agent and began writing programs for his business and creating websites. In 2004, founded RealEstatePointe, a company that creates and maintains real estate company websites and web applications across the country. Since then he has focused on digital marketing, SEO and website building for companies across a broad spectrum of industries. Jim is the Digital Marketing Director at PALO Creative where he gets to meet new clients who bring new challenges every week, which he calls “non-stop fun!”
