We're excited to invite the IXDA Seattle as event partner and Two Pens as sponsors for this evening.
Join us for networking and light refreshments at 6 pm at Makerhaus in Fremont. We're excited to have our first meeting in this fantastic space. Emily will start the presentation at 6:30 pm and lead us through the content experience at Zappo's. Misty Weaver will follow up with a tour of storytelling at ModCloth
Please note, we will be charging $10 for this event. We will set up advanced payment via Paypal this week. If you've already signed up but aren't sure you can make it, please open your seat to another person.
Emily Warn of Two Pens will lead a Content Strategy Critique session, presenting a case study on how Zappo's successfully uses social media content. Misty Weaver will follow with a critique of ModCloth. The evening will be a great opportunity to learn more about content strategy, SEO, content delivery and User Experience. We're leaving plenty of time for you to share your expertise during a group discussion. Plus, we get to look at some really fun content.
