Strategic Social Media for Your Small Business
Weds, February 8, 630-830pm

Maybe you don’t use Facebook, Twitter, FourSquare or any other social media networks to promote your business. Or you do to a degree, but haven’t seen the payoff just yet.
I will teach you strategic methods using HootSuite and various social media tools to find, monitor and pursue your target demographics and create a stream of business. I’ll also discuss time management and automation techniques to make your time online effective. We’ll even have some HootSuite swag for the event!
This will be an interactive session so bring your laptop and be prepared to take notes and test out your new knowledge!
You will leave with a social media action plan and worksheet for reference.

WordPress in a Nutshell
Weds, February 22, 630-830pm

WordPress is a very easy content management system [CMS] to use — once you’ve learned the basics and what is possible. I will take you through:

WP basics, the dashboard, how it all works;
How to run a clean WP site;
How to install plugins [and some favorites and not-so-favorites];
Security;
Where you can take your site from here!
I have been building WordPress custom & template sites since 2008 and can take you through everything from what to do if you’re hacked, on to content management techniques. Bring your questions!

You will leave with a WordPress manual and discounts toward future Gizmo events or design services.
