Help early adopters gain a sustainable advantage against their competition for years to come.

Make getting customers from the internet less of a mystery and more profitable.

Why are these Places important?

Places pages are dynamic and fully functional business websites from Google and Facebook that 90% are business owners are unaware even exist as a way to get new customers.

Whether its time spent searching or connecting, its no secret that billions of people go on Google and Facebook every single day. They continue accessing at an exponential rate from their mobile phones and tablets.

Google and Facebook has seen this coming for years which is why they both developed millions of these Places pages on their own dime for local, small and large companies around the globe to use as a marketing vehicle.

Now they are aggressively alerting business owners how they can use them more effectively to get new customers.

ClaimYourPlaces.com will break down what it means to your bottom line.

ConferenceCatcher.com

In partnership with Authority Publishing we launched a paperback book, The Conference Catcher-An Organized Journal for Capturing Ideas, Resources, and Action Items at Educational Conferences, Trade Shows, and Events.

Goals of Current Project Include:
End post-conference procrastination for all.

Help attendees organize all the details during an event to ensure they return home with an action plan

Why is the Conference Catcher important?:

If you’ve attended an educational conference, took notes on random hotel notepads, met interesting people, collected business cards, and returned home loaded with nothing but ideas and enthusiasm you are not alone. While there were dozens of actions you intended to take immediately, upon your return to the real world, somehow those notes and ideas ended up in a pile somewhere and never got implemented.

The original Conference Catcher is to help you never again experience lost conference notes, resources, and contacts.

Whether taking notes in the audience or hosting the event, the Conference Catcher will be a valuable return on investment and resource you will refer to for years to come.

The Conference Catcher can be purchased from Amazon.com in small quantities:
