Our guest on this weeks episode of Suds & Search is Kristian Bannister, Director of Product and Marketing at BrightLocal.
Kristian is a popular blogger, podcaster, and veteran digital marketer with over a decade of experience.
He is the host of the terribly impressive podcast, Adventures in Local Marketing, where he’s interviewed a who’s who of the top local SEOs in the world, covering a range of topics.
For those outside of Local SEO, it’s hard to overstate how important BrightLocal is for the Local SEO community. We can personally vouch for the effectiveness of their tool suite, which we’ve used at SearchLab for many years now.
What really separates BrightLocal is how much high-quality content they generate on their site. BrightLocal is constantly coming up with new webinars, compelling blogs posts, they’ve got a Learning Academy that is truly excellent, and the man at the center of building that community is Kristian Bannister.
Before we dive into local marketing, we’ll start our conversation by asking him a general marketing question, about a topic in which BrightLocal’s done an amazing job – how do you build a real, genuine community with your target audience?
It’s also gotta be extremely difficult to do marketing for a marketing SaaS company. We’ll dive into how Kristian approaches the works and what we can expect next from the team at BrightLocal.
Grab something cold to drink, and join us for a conversation with Kristian Bannister. We’ll talk about the BrightLocal tool suite, how SMBs can generate more (and better) reviews, and how Kristian is adjusting to Google My Business rebranding to Google Business Profile.
