Lorrie Thomas of Web Marketing Therapy and Jonathan DeLong of ZOS Communications will discuss mobile marketing strategies at the Santa Barbara Mobile Meetup on Thursday at Lenco Mobile USA Inc., 345 Chapala St.

The Santa Barbara Mobile Meetup is a monthly meeting that brings together local business leaders to discuss the growing mobile market, trends and opportunities. This month’s event will center around how to increase foot traffic with mobile marketing.

Thomas, the CEO of Web Marketing Therapy, will speak on the topic of mobile strategies for small businesses. Thomas’ marketing agency and training company diagnoses, prescribes and guides marketing solutions, and helps organizations brand, build and boost business through online solutions.

DeLong, ZOS’ executive vice president of product marketing, will focus his talk on what “location” means for the mobile market, and how GPS is best used and when it should be avoided. He will provide a crash course for how location services can affect global brand strategies and local marketing.

ZOS Communications is a leader in location services for mobile devices and focuses on mobile applications and mobile location management for developers and carriers. DeLong coordinates the company’s global product marketing strategy and handles public relations, sales support and the demonstrations of product lines.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
