GET YOUR CONSULT ON. Media & marketing experts make free content & give advice.

The Hardware Store will open up its greenscreen and podcasting studio for your use. Come make media or content that describes your good work. Local freelance videographers, editors, writers, graphic designers, and animators will be on call offering pro bono (free!) consultation and production. In addition, freelance marketing and social media consultants will be present to offer their insights around your brand and efforts. 

Here's the tentative schedule folks.

11AM Introductions. Generate a list of wants & needs. Generate a list of skills, resources, and talent in the room.

11:15AM-2PM Script, consult, shoot, edit, & publish. During this time, media professionals and writers will provide organizations support as they plan and create a piece of media. No matter where you are in the process, you'll be able to find a person in the room that can give feedback, move you forward, or provide you with technical services on the spot.

2PM-3PM Wrap up, networking, and share what you've done.

Don't be late, folks. We want to generate as much media content as possible. Organized chaos will only prevail if we stick to a schedule of events.

    See everyone tomorrow! If anyone is traveling from the East End, we have a request for a ride share. Reply here, if you're up to it.

    I don't think I'd be interested in making a commercial, but I'd be interested in "freelance marketing and social media consultants" part.. would that mean a professional can help see if your site is cell phone friendly etc?

    Hi folks, after consulting with our sponsor, we've decided to cancel today's event. We will reschedule for next Saturday - same time. Sorry for the confusion.

    • Craig G.

      Sorry guys, we were really excited for this event - we even had nice slider sandwiches ready to go. Who doesn't like sliders? Hopefully, we'll see you all next week!

    Looking at the calendar, I didn't see a marketing & media event scheduled for February. Would you imagine you'll host another marketing & media event in February or early March?

    January 25, 2014

  • Branden Mikal D.

    I will not be able to attend because of my location and weather but I'm glad to hear these are monthly events.

    Good question. I'm wondering about the weather for today's workshop, too.

  • Meghann

    Looking out my window and trying to decide if it's safe out there. Will you cancel/reschedule if it's bad enough?

  • Sarah

    The marketing and social media consulting would be most ideal for my organization. Is it possible to just participate in this part?

  • Branden Mikal D.

    I'm filling a new position as outreach specialist for an AIDS service organization and I've been given a lot of leeway to pursue New Media.

    Very Excited for this event!!

    January 4, 2014

  • Craig G.

    We're really psyched about this event and are happy to sponsor with some refreshments - thanks to NTEN!

    Until then, have a great holiday and new year!
