Join us for this unique lunchtime event with the awesome Katie Portman and the Click Together team. Katie & co will help you kick start turning your fans into funds with a look at how blogging can be a business, an overview of how to turn a strong online community into cash (in a nice way!) and get some one to one advice to help you on your own money making journey.
Why should I come?
You will find out from all the speakers how to develop a successful and well loved business but if you need more convincing...
Blogging is a great way to communicate differently about your business - and can even be a business in its own right. Come along to find out how to start on your blogging journey with some hints and tips from a local lass making a big name for herself in the blogosphere.
You will discover how blogs are an informal and chatty way to keep your customers abreast of what's going on across your business. Managed well they can help to generate income and interest in what you're doing, and even become a business in their own right. This event will help you to understand how and when to blog, give you some useful tips for how to manage a blog, how to attract visitors and how to make money.
The web has helped to create a home for numerous online communities and, managed well, these can be vibrant places for like minded folk to hang out as well as opportunities to sell in a safe environment to people who genuinely want to buy. Tracey Johnson and Ben Hawley will help you look at the opportunities and possibilities with one to one advice available.
The event starts at 11.30 and is followed by a delicious networking lunch.
The event is the final part of a series of events and activities supporting female entrepreneurs to get making money online. You can register for free on our new Click Together online learning platform at www.clicktogether.online and gain access to a range of short courses to help you set up and run your business.
