Joining the Local University forums is like drafting your own personal local search dream team.  Hiring any ONE of these experts for even a one-hour consultation would run $300 and up. By joining, you get ongoing access to all of them for just $129/month.  With your membership, you get:

  1. Member privacy – Members can get help on specific clients without having to worry about their client’s details being mentioned publicly.
  2. Pro advice – The paid forum is actively monitored by LocalU faculty as well as Google Product Experts and recognized Local SEO experts
  3. Access to Discounts on LocalU Advanced Events – Paid forum members get access to discounts on LocalU event tickets and video replays.

The LocalU Forum is meant to be a platform for discussion.  If you are looking to get advice from several people or troubleshoot a very specific issue, this would be the best place to do that.  Because it is private, it also is a lot less noisy than our public forum.
