Marketing Education Non-Profit Lunch Ann Arbor Marketing (LA2M) Announces 2010 Fall Schedule

ANN ARBOR, MI--(Marketwire - September 8, 2010) -  Marketing education non-profit Lunch Ann Arbor Marketing (LA2M) has released its official Fall speaker schedule. The fall 2010 speakers and events at LA2M will focus on digital marketing and internet marketing.

The LA2M Fall Lineup kicks off Wednesday, September 8th with Facebook Advertising. One of the best new ways to connect with and promote your products to people is on Facebook. This social media site allows you to target campaigns based on location, age, sex, career, interests, schools, relationship status and more. And Facebook ads can be run as a CPC or CPM model. Come to LA2M to learn more how it works.

Each week LA2M averages 70 - 80 attendees who learn the latest marketing solutions from industry professionals in social media, online gaming marketing, web design, programming, mobile application development, new technology, Google Adwords, digital public relations and many more. LA2M meets on Wednesdays from 11:45am - 1:00pm, at Conor O'Neill's in Ann Arbor. You can also watch the speakers live at

"Internet marketing strategy is crucial to marketers and business owners. The demand for digital is growing exponentially and this Fall, LA2M will challenge companies to think digitally and utilize the online space to connect with customers," said Derek Mehraban, CEO of Internet Marketing Firm, Ingenex and Founder of LA2M.

In the upcoming weeks, LA2M will be announcing a special guest speaker and on October 20th, attendees will get to hear the familiar voice of this famous presenter who will be speaking about his or her first-hand media experience from the World Cup 2010 in South Africa. Make sure to check back to see who it is.

The cost of attendance at LA2M is FREE. If you want lunch it's $10.00 and includes a drink (non-alcoholic) and tip. We pass the hat to cover LA2M hard costs, $3 suggested donation.

LA2M presentations last 30 minutes with a few extra minutes allotted for questions and an introduction period, in which attendees introduce themselves for promotion or a request. The educational event is a weekly Ann Arbor lunchtime staple.
