Series of Talks in October to Help Communicators Discover Opportunities

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - October 6, 2008) - Houston Web Marketing expert Ed Schipul, founder and CEO of Schipul - The Web Marketing Company (www.schipul.com) will be a featured speaker at three important national conferences this month. Schipul's presentations will delve into the most important trends in online marketing, including social media and the mobile Web.

Schipul will present, "Mobile Web - How the Impact of iPhone Will Change Business Communications," at the 2008 International Association of Business Communicators' Heritage Region Conference in Hartford, Conn. on October 13th. His presentation will explore the ways communicators can capitalize on mobile communications to advance their marketing initiatives.

"Many communicators don't realize it, but most cell phones now have Web browsing capabilities along with cameras that can record video and audio and stream live video to the Web," said Schipul. "Used strategically, these capabilities can be a powerful force, creating deeper and more meaningful connections between brands and their communities."

Schipul will present, "How nonprofits can leverage online relationships," with Brian Reich, principal of EchoDitto Inc. at the Public Relations Society of America's 2008 International Conference in Detroit on October 27th.
