8/23  – 10 Tips for Better Websites  – No one designs a website to deliberately turn off clients, prospects, and search engines, but all too often that is the end result. In this intimate workshop, we will review the most common mistakes web designers and small business owners make.

The working session will include general tactics and a review of your website. We will evaluate navigation, copy, animation, pictures, page titles, keywords, and much more.

9/13 – Blogging Basics – Search engines are getting smarter every day.   Keywords and meta tags are no longer enough to drive traffic to the website for your small business.  Search engines are looking for real, relevant and timely content.  The best way to do that? Blogging. In this session we’re offering a crash course on blogging strategies. We’ll talk about why you should blog, what you should blog about and how to get the most bang for your buck from the blogging process.

10/4 – Social Media Stew – Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn–from the outside, it can all seem like a confusing jumble. But social media is a critical marketing tool for keeping in touch with your current clients–and bringing in new ones. With social media, you can keep customers and potential customers informed, engaged, and educated about your company and your industry.

10/25 – Worth 100 Words: Creating Your Visual Content Strategy –Pinterest is the latest social network taking the country by storm. The site acts as a visual bulletin board, letting you organize pictures, videos and and more. But what if any is the marketing application? Does your small business need to be using it? Come learn how to use this cutting-edge network, and discover how you might apply it to your own marketing mix.

11/15 – Email Isn’t Dead –  People don’t become customers overnight. Typically they start out as random visitors to your website, or someone you bump into at a networking event. Helping those strangers get to know you is a process which involves sending the right messages at the right time.  While social media gets attention, a solid email campaign is the bait that keeps visitors coming back time and time again.

The cost of each session is only $10, or buy a full season package for $40.
