These days, when you are launching a new business or trying to grow your freelance gig into a full-time career, you are almost always going to need to go online. And that can be intimidating. So PatchWork Collective has gathered a panel of web professionals to guide you through (almost) everything you need to know about marketing your startup on the web. Join us for The Web-iverse: Small Business Online Marketing on Tuesday, April 9, 2019 at 12:00.
Supporting Local Business Owners Over Lunch
At PatchWork Collective, we talk to small business owners every day. We know that for a lot of startups, there can be more questions about web marketing than there are hours in the day. From websites to social media, there is always something new to learn, and to screw up. The worry that your website is a turn off, or sending the wrong message can keep you from taking the necessary steps to grow your business.
But fear not! Worrying about web marketing doesn’t have to consume your day or take away from the important work that you are doing. What if you could get your questions answered over lunch?
That’s the idea behind the upcoming panel, The Web-iverse: Small Business Online Marketing. The event brings together a web developer, designer, and content writer, to give you an overview of all things web and answer your questions about marketing your startup online.
Lisa Schmidt, Legal Linguist
Lisa will present on the words on your website. She’ll talk about blogging, SEO, and making the most of your readers’ attention spans.
Jeanette Micallef, Intuitive Indigo
Jeanette Micallef is a web designer who owns Intuitive Indigo. She works with small business owners and startups, with a specific focus on holistic health companies, to provide them with easy-to-use intuitive websites.
Jeanette will present on how your website looks. She’ll talk about how layout, images, and even color choices can affect your brand online.
Jonathan Bourland, Major Robot Interactive
Jonathan Bourland is a web developer who owns Major Robot Interactive. Unfortunately for us, he doesn’t actually build robots. But he does help clients develop websites and interactive museum displays.
Jonathan will present on what your website does. He will explain some of the mysterious terms behind setting up your site, and will explain how you can make creative use of your site to build your business.
