Who:           Kevin M. Ryan, chief marketing officer, WebVisible, Inc.

What:          Search Engine Strategies 2009 -- San Jose, CA

When:          August 11, 2009

Overview:      At SES San Jose, Kevin Ryan will moderate the panel,
               "Keeping it Local: The Convergence of Phones & Local
               Search." Ryan will also be a featured presenter at
               "The View from the CMO's Office" session.

               Keeping it Local: The Convergence of Phones & Local Search
               (4:30 p.m.)

               Smart phone adoption is growing quickly. ComScore's
               statistics on year-over-year cell phone usage
               (Jan '08 - Jan '09) reveal a 71 percent increase in unique
               users accessing the Web from mobile devices. And daily usage
               increased 107 percent. This, according to many mobile media
               watchers, indicates a change of habit. People are using
               mobile devices to search for physical locations. Local
               businesses need to be where they can be found by the new
               wave of mobile users. This session explains the relevant
               phone user habit changes, and demonstrates how effective
               local search listings can be when utilized to their full
               potential instead of cobbled together in an effort to
               support lagging SEO.

               The View from the CMO's Office
               (11:45 a.m.)

               Marketers have traditionally had difficulty communicating in
               the language of their disciplines, often creating friction
               and unnecessary conflict. In this session, Ryan will
               overview the day-by-day challenges of the CMO from two
               viewpoints: the traditional CMO and the CMO who has made the
               move to digital. This interactive session will explore how
               both disciplines can educate each other and explore such
               issues as the nominal percentage of marketing spend that is
               allocated to search.

               Ryan is CMO at WebVisible, a leading provider of local
               online advertising and other marketing products and services
