Attend LocalU Advanced Virtual
August 31, 2021
As always, we promise completely new content, never presented before at ANY conference!
Just $99/person for access to the full day of information – live or via video post-event!
A full-day Local SEO Conference for Internet Marketing Professionals
Join us from anywhere in the world on August 31, 2021, from 9 am to 5:30 pm Eastern time for Local U Advanced – See the top experts in Local Search with one goal… sharing everything.
If you’ve attended one of our other virtual events in the past 18-months – rest assured – this is going to be completely new content. New research & case studies, new topics, features & opportunities will be discussed.
Our planning team works hard to ensure our speakers do not regurgitate the things you’ve heard at our conferences, or any others dedicated to local search. We pay our speakers, and as a result, we have some of the best minds and information available – for an incredibly reasonable cost to you.
Whether you run an agency that serves brick-and-mortar businesses, work in-house for a large brand, or manages multiple locations & enterprise accounts. Or if you’re looking to expand into local marketing from traditional SEO, you won’t want to miss Local U Advanced Training. All new content is presented by thought leaders in the industry.
These sessions will be action-packed, presented at an advanced level, and feature ALL of the most up-to-date information about what’s working and what’s not in Local Search Engine Optimization. Join us for a great day.
Can’t make the event? Get your ticket and watch the videos on demand – available to all ticket holders about a week after the event concludes!
Our Agenda is In Progress!

We list new speakers as they’re confirmed – check back often!
CEO & Co-Founder,
"Aaron Weiche is the CEO and cofounder of Leadferno, a business and text messaging platform to close more leads faster."
"Darren founded Whitespark in 2005. The company specialized in web design and development, however, Darren’s passion and curiosity for all things local search led Whitespark to focus primarily on local SEO in 2010 with the launch of the Local Citation Finder, followed by the Local Rank Tracker."
Director, Web Intelligence,
Local SEO Guide
"Rachel is an SEO who fell in love with data visualization somewhere along the way. You’re likely to find her visualizing data in Google Data Studio, going down rabbit holes to solve a tech SEO problem, working in her garden, fermenting things, or talking about cats."
Director of Product,
"Adam Dorfman is a technology and digital marketing professional with more than 20 years of experience. His expertise spans all aspects of product development as well as scaling product and engineering teams."
"Joy Hawkins has been working in the Local SEO industry since 2006 and loves being a Google Top Contributor. She is also a speaker at various search engine marketing conferences such as SMX & LocalU, Pubcon & Mozcon."
Dana DiTomaso, President,
"Dana's focus on the future contributes to the topics Dana speaks on, and she is often asked to cover emerging techniques because her digital marketing agency is committed to pushing for better opportunities for its clients."
"Matt got his start in the digital space in 2012 while selling SEO products for a web hosting company. That led to a specialist role at an SEO agency where he got his first taste of local SEO working with lots of small business clients. "
Vice President of Search,
"Greg Gifford is the Vice President of Search at SearchLab, a boutique Local SEO agency company that provides digital marketing services to SMBs all over the country. He’s got over 17 years of online marketing experience and is an international conference speaker, teaching thousands of small business owners and marketers how to get their sites to show up higher in local search rankings."
Our aim is to educate as many as we can on the tactics and strategies that work for Local Search & Local SEO. With that goal in mind, we’re proud to offer scholarship opportunities for those who need them. Our last event in April awarded 59 scholarships with the help of our Scholarship Sponsors!
Scholarships are awarded to those who meet the following criteria:
- Have been laid off
- Have experienced a reduction in work
- Desire knowledge, but work for a company without budget or desire to invest in education
- Are freelance/consultants with limited education budgets
Preference is given to those who have not previously received a scholarship, but a previous award does not disqualify you – we encourage everyone who wants to learn, but doesn’t have the budget for the $99 ticket, to appply.
We’ve been able to invite many to LocalU through our Scholarship Sponsorship Program over the last 18 months. We’d like to continue that mission!
If you’d like to help, please purchase scholarship sponsorships by clicking on the button below – add as many scholarships to your cart as you’d like and check out. Upon payment, Carrie will contact you for your logo and link info so we can say “thanks” here on the website and on our social channels.
We’ll process the scholarships and award them through the days leading up to the event. As stated, the LocalU/SterlingSky team will match all scholarship sponsorships 1:1!
