Chapter of Mobile Monday today announced the speakers and topics for its upcoming monthly meeting.

Featured speaker for the event will be Melih Oztalay, CEO of Birmingham-based SmartFinds Internet
Marketing, who will be speaking on the topic of “Why Geo-Marketing is Becoming Increasingly
Important for Marketing Your Business and How Mobile Helps You Achieve It”. Other speakers for the
event will be Megan Crosbie, Marketing & Membership Coordinator at the Ann Arbor Chamber of
Commerce who will be speaking about the Chamber’s mobile app, A2YChamber, and Linda Daichendt,
CEO of Strategic Growth Concepts, who will discuss recent studies regarding consumer cell phone usage
and cell phone operating system market penetration rates.

In today’s marketplace, mobile marketing is being implemented by business owners and marketers from
the smallest ‘mom & pop shop’ to the largest multi-national corporations. As the traditional marketing
channels suffer various levels of decline, mobile marketing is experiencing triple-digit growth annually.
Mr. Oztalay’s presentation on Geo-Marketing via Mobile will help businesses capitalize on this growth
by providing more effective ways of using the technology to improve local marketing results; while
Daichendt’s presentation will review mobile from the consumer’s perspective.

Featured speaker, Melih Oztalay states about Geo-Marketing, "The benefits to small business are
incredible; to be available to their local customers when the customer is looking for them while driving
around town with their mobile device is an opportunity they need to take advantage of. The fact that
the business can also update their offers anytime gives a local business the ability to adapt to market
changes. I’m excited to be able to make this information available to members of Michigan’s mobile and
marketing communities."

Melih Oztalay has over fifteen years experience with Internet and digital services in developing
strategies that utilize all facets of the World Wide Web. As a Internet marketing agency,
SmartFinds Internet Marketing’s major focus is to develop multi-directional marketing
campaigns to drive traffic to client web sites from more than just search engines.

A co-founder of Mobile Monday Michigan , Daichendt explains the importance of mobile technology as
part of local marketing efforts, “As methods of reaching customers become more and more fragmented
due to the abundance of channels in use today, it becomes increasingly imperative for marketers to be
able to focus their efforts on those methods they can be certain will produce the highest rate of return
on the marketing dollars invested.”
