New Meetup: Independant web folks consortium

From: Christopher C.

Announcing a new Meetup for Montana Programmers!

What: Independant web folks consortium

When: Saturday, November 20,[masked]:00 PM

Where: Missoula Public Library
301 E Main St
Missoula, MT 59802

Many of us web folk are flying solo attempting to do it all while competing with each other and the world.
What would it be like if we were able to just focus on the web building-dev aspects we accel in? What if there was a local consortium where each person handles an aspect (or more) of the whole web thingy as a team?

As is we each get to:

  • Market | Data mine for new customers
  • Create ads
  • Maintain individual portfolio websites
  • Post ads-listings
  • Interview with prospective clients
  • Create discoveries
  • Design logos
  • Design sites
  • Develop sites
  • Handle scope creep
  • Teach clients how to use their new sites
  • Teach SEO
  • Teach Social Networking
  • Much more...

The meeting is a green light (open to any ideas) session to discuss creating a united front for sourcing work, building websites/websuites, teaching, maintaining as a concerted group.

" Many hands make the work light"

"I'd rather have 1% of 100 peoples efforts than 100% of my own"

So if you are in the web business, would like to join forces please be at this meeting.

Althought there are many specialties, if you:

  • Web market
  • Web design-graphics-CSS-templates
  • Web Dev- CMS-HTML-pHp, etc
  • Photographer
  • Videographer
  • Social Media
  • SEO
  • Anything I can't think of right now but it is web related....

Plus if you are just starting out or a seasoned coder-web person and want to see about creating a group to source and maintain work in the greater Missoula Montana area, please attend.

We will spend 2 hours in a rapid fire open idea session to see if the consortium idea is a viable option for us.

We will meet at the Missoula Public Library in the Board room November 20th, 2010 from 2 to 4 pm.

This will be a whiteboard meeting, no need for laptops but feel free to bring them. Bring enthusiasm, any ideas and pad-pen-pencil.

Now is a great time because the rain hasn't turned to snow, holidays don't start until the following weekend...

Have questions? Post them in the discussion area.
