Switching things up this month and holding a panel with four excellent WIMP members to discuss what the core of any website or marketing strategy needs, content.
With more than 30 years experience in sales and marketing, I use my background in television and Internet technology to create websites that bring in new customers for your business using advertising on Google and Yahoo. My blog (aNetGain.com) features business strategies and advertising ideas. Website: A Net Gain for Revenue
Bryan Fikes has a decade of internet marketing experience for small to medium sized businesses nationwide. He has clients ranging from Guy Fieri to Frigidaire and Maytag to name a few. Bryan has a personal passion for helping business owners increase their revenue and overall goals. In his spare time, he absolutely loves strategy, wake-surfing, golfing and spending time with his dog Ozzy. Website: Zenergy Works
Gretchen Giles is a social media marketer and content provider with a background in the tech industry and plain old dead tree media.

I began my professional career in 2004, working for a busy web design company in Santa Rosa where I cut my teeth as a content advocate, designer, project manager, front-end developer, customer care representative, and CSS cheerleader.
I wrote web content, functional specs, end user documentation, and office policies and procedures. I preached web standards, tested fanatically, and drove everyone crazy with my attention to detail.
In 2008, I took a leap of faith (pardon the pun), and hung out my own "virtual" shingle. Today, Leap of Faith Web Design is committed to helping clients meet their business objectives by planning and designing clear, concise and compelling websites with a strong focus on content.

As always, our meetups are a potluck! Bring something to snack on or drink! Bring cookies, soda, pizza, some have brought KFC or Pizza before! Feel free to use us as guinea pigs for your cooking master pieces if you wish! :) A hungry WIMP, is an unhappy WIMP.
