You Are Your Website: Our Next Writer Seminar

Anyone hiring a writer needs a quick means of getting up to speed on your skill set, talent, and expertise. Online profiles can provide a perfect snapshot of what you have to offer—if they're properly done. The look and feel of your site speaks volumes about who who are as a writer and a professional, and can be the deciding factor in whether or not you get the job. 

That's why the next workshop in our brown-bag-lunch series will teach participants how to create a pitch-perfect (and worthy) site. Tomorrow, web and social-media-marketing experts Sean Concannon and Rich Kelley from Your Expert Nation will lead a talk on "Making the Most of Your Online Profile." They'll present strategies for getting your information online, the tools available to do this yourself, and how to work with a web developer for a more customized profile. They'll discuss ways to maximize the information you’re putting out on your personal website, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, Quora, and on and on. Expanding on the lessons from our previous seminar by Business Ghost Michael Levin, this one will be a deeper dive into self-promotion and ways of impressing clients before you even talk to them.

*Unfortunately, this event is full. But watch this space for a writeup and video of the seminar later this week!
