Web Design & Analysis in a Super Competitive Enviroment - Experienced Users

Waz Up Geek Fool?

Thank you to the Wingate by Wyndam at the Orlando Airport for use of the meeting space!

This session is about making money with WordPress as your friend. We will learn from each other and network.

Lets face it, every Tom, Dick and Harry has a web site. Its tough out there! How can we attract and convert lookers into actual paying customers?

This session will be limited to 35 places.

Intermediate to advanced users please. If you are a total novice this session will make your eyes roll in the back of your head.

The Session:

We will look at the most competitive web space in a WordPress frame work. In particular we will look at the local search term "orlando hotels" and related WordPress web sites as this is one of the most competitive areas on the internet and of particular local importance.

We will break into teams of 4 and assess the following from a WordPress design perspective.

1. Back links Vs. Content

2. Use of social media

3. WP Design

4. AB testing & Heat mapping

5. WP wire frame design errors & theme errors

6. Link juice flow patterns

7. Call to action - lookers into bookers

8. Key WP plugins for SEO domination

9. Code mess - PHP and CSS

Each team will present their findings to the rest of the group. Winner gets a very special prize.....

If you know anyone in the Orlando hotel business this session would be priceless (as long as they know a bit about web design), but as an open source community this will be free ($3 donation at the door for Pizza).


9:30 AM - Housekeeping / Assign Groups / Network

9:45 AM - Groups work on research/presentation

10:30 AM - Group 1 Presents (DESIGN TEAM)

11:00 AM - Group 2 Presents (CODE TEAM)

11:30 AM - Pizza / Network

Noon - Group 3 Presents (SEO & SOCIAL MEDIA TEAM)

12.30 - Group 4 Presents (CONVERSION TEAM $)

1.00 PM - ENDS / Network

Its a jungle out there.....

Remember to keep the group organic - no shameless plugs unless you are a speaker, organizer or sponsor - i.e. you support the local WordPress community!

The MeetUp is a perfect place for networking your business in the breaks.

If you are recruiting WordPress developers please feel free to post as always.

Due to limited space, naughty no-shows get blocked from the group. If you are unable to attend, but have a reservation be sure to login and cancel your spot so someone else can attend.

Your cancelation must be received 12 hours before the start of the MeetUp. We will send out a 24 hour warning to remind you.

Please do not sign up unless you are 100% SURE you will be attending. We have very limited space and massive demand. Be fair to the group.

    Is anybody available for a few minutes during the week that could help me get up and running with the install process? I'm still trying to wrap my head around installing Wordpress to run through localhost (WAMP). Feel free to reach me at[masked]

    It was very informative and gave great resources on all different aspects of the web in where we would be able to easily apply to our own projects immediately.

    Hi Everyone, I am registered for this meet up group tomorrow. Really want to attend. I don't consider myself an advance user and don't do work for other people I have worked on my own websites, however, when I read everyone's post it sounds like that I may not be advanced enough. I go to as many of these groups that I can and always learn from them. My question is should I be attending this meet up group? I am alwayst here to learn and to be a possitive presence. Would someone let me know if I should atttend or give my seat to someone else. I am free to come and would like to come but let me know if I should. Sincerely, Lydia
