June 20, 2017 — Emily has been working in WNC since 2007 as a marketing and business development specialist.
According to Emily, A website is the heart of any brand, but most WNC organizations need help to bring their site into the modern age. However, the process of ReBranding is much more complicated than simply launching a new website. Modernizing an existing brand requires leaders to refine their message, deliver engaging content, and manage a robust platform around the website to maintain a more sustainable relationship with customers.
June 19, 2017 — WordCamp Orange County 2017 – Business Track
HOST: Jeff Turner
June 15, 2017 — I still like to be called a WordPress developer but I have managed products and dabbled at marketing before. In 2014, I started getting active in the WordPress ecosystem and eventually led the organising of WordCamp Pune 2015.
In this period, I was able to create successful, non-intrusive promotional campaigns for various WordPress related activities, especially WordCamp Pune. I learnt a lot of things there.
I have been working since I was 18, so I have been working for 16 years now and I have seen different sales and marketing tactics in my career in different managerial roles. I’m going to compare and contrast concepts behind some common marketing tactics/strategies with some proven engagement strategies that I learnt from the WordPress ecosystem.
While the topic is definitely business oriented, it will have insights and examples that are useful both for individuals and organisations.
The concepts are simple and can be grasped by anyone with zero marketing skills, as well.
