Repurposing Your Content: A Content Strategy Workshop

Fremont Branch - The Seattle Public Library

We all work hard at creating our content. And we are often challenged with creating even more. That is where repurposing comes in. In this two-hour workshop, I will help you to find that sweet spot to help you become a content generator. We will look at the various mediums that fit your style and your audience. You will find ways to keep your content fresh for your readers and for the search engines. I will walk you through proven ways that I have done this myself over the last 7 years and share methods and tools that have helped me daily. BONUS: I will also share how this played into a recent project of taking out blog of 9 years, with over 1,500 posts and splitting it into two blogs. (Sites) Bring your questions, get ready for some discussion, and learn the different ways you can help yourself from worrying about that next new piece of content. About Bob Bob Dunn, aka BobWP, is a publisher, writer and podcaster who has worked as a designer, digital marketer, coach and writer during the last 20 years.

WordPress Freelancers Meetup

Wallingford Good Shepherd Center

Patty & Sheila are both away this month so Vanessa will be your guide. Suzanne is going to lead us through a process of creating a one-page business plan using Lean Canvas approach: https://leanstack.com/leancanvas. This is in preparation for next month's Marketing focus. Come prepared to work by thinking about your business goals, phase, focus, etc. Do you make your living using WordPress to create websites for other people’s businesses? This new Meetup is for you! We are not about themes or plugins, rather we'll talk about aspects of having a freelance business based in WP. We’ll discuss the successes and challenges of running a small business, share stories, ask questions, share tools & resources, brainstorm ideas and generally create community for those of us who typically work in isolation. We meet on the first Thursday of each month from 10-noon at the Wallingford Good Shepherd Center, Room 221. It’s not far from the freeway and has free parking. PS – Please note that this Meetup is specifically for those with a freelance business that relies on WordPress and not intended for those who have their business website made in WordPress. There are many other Meetups for WordPress users. Use this link to join the Seattle WP Slack Group (https://wpseattleslack.wordpress.com/) and then you can interact with the group in the Business Channel. We post all our Freelancer minutes on our website at: https://wpseattle.org/category/freelancers-meetup/ Please join our new FaceBook Group as well: https://www.facebook.com/groups/wpseattle
