Come join us at The JOMM to hear Elizabeth Pampalone’s 5 ideals to creating a Connected Brand! Looking to brand yourself, start a business, or already have a business? This session will give you the insight you need to confidently create a Connected Brand. From mindset to marketing know-how, this process has worked for Elizabeth on her own brand and those of her clients. Her signature IN A DAY sessions all start on the foundation of Absolute Marketing. To achieve success in any industry or capacity, a Connected Brand is essential. Elizabeth’s study of marketing and psychology began over 20 years ago. When she started her own business in 2007, she realized that it was impossible to do it all. She also knew a business plan without marketing was not realistic. She developed Absolute Marketing which is the foundation on which she runs her own business. Elizabeth began sharing this formula with her clients and seeing them achieve the same success she had experienced. Today, she speaks across the country and beyond presenting the Absolute Marketing formula to professionals and business owners alike. Her talks educate and inspire, leaving you with attainable goals and immediate actions that will elevate your marketing efforts at any stage. Note: The JOMM has a different meeting location for 2019.

After a 40+ year career in music, film, and video production, first as a jingle writer while in college in upstate NY, then as a recording studio manager and Associated Producer with Pandora Productions in Miami Florida working alongside Alan Blazek, producer for The Eagles, Joe Walsh, Dan Fogelberg, Steven Stills, The Outlaws, Linda Ronstadt and many others, John became a record label founder (Magic Baer Records) in Perth Australia.

    Tapping New Markets by Improving Your Website’s Accessibility If you had the opportunity to engage potential clients that previously could not access your business, would you consider that a good move? Most business owners would agree it is a good idea if the cost to engage the potential clients did not exceed the potential return on investment. Updating your website to make it accessible to individuals with disabilities does not require significant investment and taking that step may set you apart from your competition. Besides, why wouldn’t you want your website accessible to everyone? And what if this smart marketing move protected you against a nuisance lawsuit for ADA website compliance? Your ROI just increased exponentially! • Expand your awareness of markets you may never have considered before • Learn what needs to be in your Accessibility Policy to improve your return • Volunteer to have your website evaluated as part of the presentation! ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Joe Lemire is the President and Chief Innovator of ELYK Innovation.

    Choosing the Best E-Commerce Platform The digital marketplace is huge. In addition to the major players, there are hundreds of small specialty sites. Some hit it big (Zappos, Beardbrand), while others flounder and fade out (Pets.com, Fab). Does the e-commerce platform you choose come into play in your success or failure? Two of the top platforms are WooCommerce and Shopify. Each has its fans and its detractors. If you want to sell things online, which should you choose? Is there really that much difference? How many problems will you encounter if you pick the wrong one and need to change it later? And how much will doing so cost you and disrupt your daily store operations? Get a programmer’s perspective on that crucial decision when Marv Conn speaks to The JOMM on Choosing the Best E-Commerce Platform. He’ll cover the basics of each and tell you what to consider when building your e-commerce site. Marv is a PHP programmer, e-commerce specialist, and Linux security expert who works for Fisher Design, one of the top advertising, graphic design, and public relations agencies in Jacksonville.
