AdViking has now had time to mull over first impressions from the International Classifieds Media Association General Meeting in Brussels last week and has decided that those first thoughts written in the early morning while waiting to board a flight back to the UK were pretty spot on.
Saying that, AdViking does want to also suggest that you have a look at LocalOnliner. Especially as Peter has some interesting thoughts and was coming to Brussels on the back of Kelsey’s Drilling Down on Local conference, including sharing some of the musings of the Don of Vertical, Rich Barton.
Which reminds AdViking that it’s less than a week until the Local Search Summit in Oslo. This is an invite-only session between various non-competitive Publishers who are at different stages of deploying a Local Search strategy. The agenda is packed for two days of knowledge sharing, networking and blue sky thinking and should finish off the Vertical Zoom nicely.
