Next Webinar is Wednesday 3/8/17 at 6pm Dos and Dont's of Imagery: Best Practices for Visual Communication
Website viewers make an instantaneous judgement about a website way before they've read a single word of text. Photos, colors, logos and styles speak for your business and form the first impression for users. Are yours working FOR you or against you? As with all of the workshops we'll begin with some basic technical considerations and then delve into the strategic use of imagery. You'll leave with a valuable handout of things you can do right now along with resources for getting on track and learning even more. Learn from anywhere by computer, phone or tablet. Wednesday Website Webinars are live, online presentations cover search engine optimization, social media marketing, blogging for business and much more. Choose to just listen in or speak up and participate in the Q&A. No rushing around, just find a cozy spot and relax while learning. Every session includes a valuable resource-packed handout too. Kick off the New Year with momentum and focus! You can even save 20% with a Season Pass. Sign up at my Webinars page.
Like our earlier Smartphone Video lab, this session will walk you through creating, editing and uploading a video from scratch. Video is currently the most effective tool in promoting yourself online. It's great for people - video draws the eye and captures the imagination instantly - and it's great for search engine optimization (SEO) and social media marketing (SEM). It's a slam dunk ... IF it's done well. Shaky, sideways, mumbly videos about nonsense are not going to do the trick. Come to this lab to try out simple, proven techniques for creating high-quality, effective short videos. Start from scratch or bring a short clip or some stills. Either way you'll leave with a filmed and edited 30 second video.
- A tablet that can take video (class is taught using an iPad)
- Your app store log in and password. Find it if you don't know it. We will be downloading a free app for this lab.
- You are still welcome to attend, observe and take notes if you don't have a tablet.
Web Labs help you build your online presence week by week. Through this project-based series I'll guide you through the creation of an online marketing plan, optimized social media profiles, a website tune-up, a small business video and more! You'll leave every session with valuable assets designed to drive new clients to your business. Developed for small business owners, these are great for nonprofits and career skill-builders too! You can even save 50% with a Season Pass. Get the schedule and pricing at my Web Labs page.
