WordPress Bournemouth January Meetup

  • January 26 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Happy New Year everyone! December's meetup was a great insight into how Chris runs his WordPress sites, and we had crackers! 🎉

This month we are back to having a lightning talk and a main talk, as well as pizza and drinks supplied by our sponsors. Our main talk is a change to the previously advertised talk on freelancing.

WP-CLI - Managing WordPress on the Command Line (Lightning Talk)

WP-CLI's goal is to provide a command-line interface for any action you might want to perform in the WordPress admin. This short talk will show you the power of WP-CLI and some of the things you can do with it.

Presented by Iain Poulson. Iain is a developer working with Delicious Brains, building WordPress plugins and applications.

Are WordPress Developers Doing Enough Marketing?

It is common that experts in one field, such as WordPress, aren't doing enough to market their products or themselves. Marketing your product can have some huge benefits, besides the obvious hope that more people will buy it. 

For example, marketing your product can:

• Make you look like an expert in the field.

• Make your product look more credible.

• Give you a larger audience for the next product you release.

Presented by Ben Levy. Ben teaches smaller businesses how to maximise their marketing efforts, using focused physical seminars and managed marketing services.

Pizza and drinks supplied by our sponsors. 

6.30pm - Doors Open

6.45pm - Pizza

7.15pm - Talks
