The Inaugural Meetup! WordPress for Small Business Owners!

It's our first meeting in our new configuration! Join us for an evening of small business-focused WordPressery!

Both small business owners and WordPress developers are encouraged to attend!

We'll be talking about the goals for the group, so please come help shape the future!

PLEASE NOTE: The primary focus of this group is on USING WordPress for your small business website.

 

Initial agenda includes:

SPEAKERS!
Sé Reed, Sé Reed Media/Small Business Development Center
• An introduction to the group
• Building an Awesome WordPress Website for Your Small Business

Suzette Frank, (mt)MediaTemple
• Jetpack Features for Small Business Owners

 

SPEED NETWORKING!
Small business owners, meet WordPress developers! WordPress developers, meet small business owners!

 

PRIZES!
(mt)MediaTemple is providing TEN swag bag prizes, plus a FREE YEAR OF HOSTING! You must be present to win!

 

LOCATION!
The offices are off of Conant Street, which you can get to from either Lakewood Blvd or Clark Ave. The buildings are big white buildings, and are closer to the Clark side of Conant. The SBDC office is in the second building ... I will have signs to guide you from there.

I'm finding out if parking is free after
6pm, but if not, you can get a permit for $1 near the driveway to the building.

    Something's come up and I can't come by tonight. So gutted. I know this meeting will be fantastic - one for the ages, really - so I hope there will be lots of notes and comments here so I can live vicariously. Sé is a wealth of knowledge, so all you lucky people who are going are in for a treat!
