First Thursday of the month, 10am-12pm
Typical attendance: 15-30
Description of Meetup: Open conversation focused on running a business based on WordPress. We have a solid group of regulars and each month we get a few new faces. We have developers, designers, copywriters, SEO/digital marketing experts, new and prospective freelancers and those with years of experience. While we may incidentally bring up plugins, tools, features of WordPress, our focus is on running your freelance business.
Format of typical Meetup: Each week we do a round of introductions, then we have open dialog on a topic picked at the previous meeting. Everyone is welcome to participate – bring your questions and solutions. We occasionally have guest speakers and/or member spotlights, too.
Example topics or questions:
- How do you find clients?
- What is your business model?
- Best practices for contracts/time tracking/invoicing
- Spotlight: Task automation with Zapier & IFTTT by Jessica and Eric
