*Note: Akilah will not be able to attend tonight, but we will have her video from WordCamp CT of this presentation and will have a question & answer period after with the people attending. Because we will not have a live speaker, we are refunding the fee and anyone who wants to come will be admitted free. There will still be pizza served, so please make sure your RSVP is correct so we can order the right amount.
In July, we are lucky to have Akilah Thompkins-Robinson, PMP, one of the most talked about speakers from WordCamp CT here to tell us all about Social Media and WordPress. Akilah is a designer and Web Strategy Coach, who works with e-commerce and on-line businesses to design, develop, and dominate the web! Akilah is the owner of AKZMe Designs and Marketing (http://www.akzmedesigns.com/) where she provides designs, development, consulting, and training services; and Online Boutique Source (http://www.onlineboutiquesource.com/) a niche site dedicated to sharing information to help get started with an eCommerce business.
Akilah is also the author of the ebook “The Website Content Workbook: The guide to what should be inside your website”.
These days companies and entrepreneurs use social media to attract customers and build buzz. The problem is… much of the traffic you build on social media never makes it back to your site… and manually trying to keep your social media and WordPress site synced and working together can take hours.
In this presentation Akilah will show how to integrate your social media strategy with your website. Including, how to get traffic off your Facebook, Twitter and social pages and onto your website, plugins and online tools that make the biggest impact and how to save time doing it all.
This is a presentation you won't want to miss!
The schedule will be as follows:
6:45-7:00 Lighting Round (People ask general questions about WP)
7:00-8:00 Presentation & Questions
*Pizza will be served so no need to eat before you come!
We are going to take a break in August so everyone can go to WordCamp NYC and enjoy the summer weather. We'll be back in September with our own Alex Miranda who will be giving a presentation on local SEO. WordCamp CT attendees were raving about Alex's presentation there and this is a subject you can't afford to miss. Hope to see you all there as well as at Tom's June presentation on Child Themes.
