Chatmeter started off as a realization that customer reviews were going to have a huge impact on decision making for consumers looking for local products and services. However, there was no way to manage this huge influx of reviews in the fragmented world of local search. Collin Holmes, Founder and CEO, set out in late 2009 to build the very first mobile local search platform aimed to help marketers, agencies, and local businesses improve their online presence and reputation.
Chatmeter's VP of Sales, Dorian Chase, led a panel of experts and shared his expert opinion in the session "How to Sell When You Don't Have Any Customers" to over 300 businesses at San Diego Startup Week. San Diego has quickly become a hot spot for startup businesses recently and San Diego Startup is labeling the city as "The Next Silicon Valley". SDSW is an exciting time for entrepreneurs to network, share progress, resources and knowledge. For those of you not lucky enough to attend this event, we have laid out his key steps for you below.
