Slide 4: 

HOW? By Harnessing the Power of Local Search. But first some background • • •

Slide 5: 

Economists and news pundits universally agree – we’re either already in or headed for a recession – perhaps a deep one.

Slide 6: 

Consumer spending will be impacted by a recession – especially a deep one, don’t you agree? When consumer spending is dramatically decreased it can adversely affect YOUR business, right?

Slide 7: 

Do you agree? ► Even during trying economic times, there will be a segment of “potential” customers in your area that will have disposable income. ► Someone in your area (or somewhere in the world if you sell online) is always looking for your products or services. ► Most people these days use the Internet to search for what they want or need – but the majority end up buying locally.

Slide 8: 

The #1 priority of any business that wants to survive and thrive in today’s world has to be effective MARKETING! As a business owner that MUST get market-ing results, where does it make most sense to spend your hard earned money: ► Continue to spend money blindly on ads in Newspapers, coupons, magazines, direct mail, mass email, postcards, etc. or ► Start spending your marketing dollars in the very media where consumers with money to spend are already looking for your products or services?

Monday, 3 Mar 2008 Warren Buffett to CNBC:  U.S. Economy in Recession By "Common Sense Definition" Posted By:Alex Crippen In a series of exclusive live appearances on CNBC's Squawk Box this morning, Warren Buffett told us that by a "common sense definition", the U.S. economy is already in a recession, even if it hasn't met the technical definition of two consecutive quarters of negative growth.

Bernanke warns of possible U.S. recession. Fed chief says U.S. economy could shrink in the first half of 2008 WASHINGTON - Ben Bernanke knows a recession when he sees one, and he’s starting to sound like that’s just what he expects to see. A student of the Great Depression, the Federal Reserve chairman once served on the very panel of experts that unofficially determines when recessions begin and end — a finding that usually comes well after the fact. Now for the first time, Bernanke as Fed chief acknowledged on Wednesday that the U.S. could reel into recession from the powerful punches of housing, credit and financial crises. Yet, he was coy about the Federal Reserve’s next move. updated 4:38 p.m. MT, Wed., April. 2, 2008

$200 per barrel oil, $10 per gallon gasoline coming soon? by: Lowell Tue Apr 29, 2008 at 9:17:27 AM EDT As you may know, I worked at the Energy Information Administration (EIA) for 17 1/2 years as an international energy markets analyst before leaving in March 2006. During my last few years there, I headed up a team that prepared the international oil market inputs into EIA's Short-Term Energy Outlook. As economists, it's not particularly surprising that we tended to look at world oil supply and demand balances, oil production capacity utilization rates, oil inventories, economic growth forecasts and the like. We also tended to think in terms of price and income elasticities of supply and demand. GAS PRICES SKYROCKETING!

Think rising gas prices will affect your customer’s disposable income?

Housing price collapse steals from all our pockets. Posted by Teresa Dixon Murray and Mark Gillispie March 22, 2008 20:21PM Nationwide numbers 10.3%Nearly 9 million homeowners -- more than 10 percent of the total -- owe more on their homes than the homes are worth, according to Moody's That's the most who have been "under water" since the Great Depression. By year-end, because home values are expected to continue falling, that figure is expected to skyrocket to 30 percent, according to Goldman Sachs. So nearly one-third of homeowners will owe more on their mortgage than the home is worth. 48%Americans' equity in their homes fell below the 50 percent level in 2007 for the first time on record, the Federal Reserve said this month. The Fed, which has been tracking people's equity in their homes since 1945, said the figure dipped to 48 percent in the fourth quarter, meaning people's outstanding debt on their home exceeds half its value. 5%As the phenomenon spirals, home prices nationwide are expected to fall by an additional 5 percent to 7 percent this year, according to Fannie Mae, the largest buyer and underwriter of U.S. homes. 20%Home values nationwide are expected to drop an additional 20 percent to 25 percent by the time the real estate and mortgage markets settle down in 2010-11, said Wall Street housing analyst Ivy Zelman of Zelman & Associates. That could be tempered slightly if something radical happens, such as if the government gets involved with buying the massive load of foreclosed homes, she said.

Slide 23: 

International Factors ► Falling value of the dollar relative to other currencies. ► Much of recent years prosperity financed by selling US Securities to foreign countries (such as China) allowing debt to be monetized. Falling value of dollar makes holding these investments undesirable. A sudden sell-off could devastate our economy. ► Terrorist acts. ► Much more!
