Expert Tips for a Website Makeover

Gene Chamson, founder of the Bay Area Net Marketing Alliance Meetup, has invited Cherie Del Carlo of Gather Your Crowd to be a panelist at his January 2011 event:

“Website Makeover: Expert Tips on How to Improve and Promote Your Website”

Here’s what Gene has to say about this event:

“No matter how much time you’ve put into your website, chances are it could still benefit from a “fresh pair of eyes” from an expert. That is the idea behind tonight’s event…

We’ve put together a panel of experts to review your websites and make suggestions for improvement. And if you don’t have a website (or don’t want it reviewed), you’ll still get a lot out of seeing real case studies.

Our panel includes an SEO expert, a social media consultant and a graphic designer. Each will give suggestions on small changes that could make big differences. Together, we’ll all learn a great deal from each other’s ideas and expertise applied to real live examples. This is also a great opportunity to promote your website within a supportive community.

We’ll only have time to go through 5-8 different websites during the event, so there is no guarantee that yours will be selected. But we’ll take them in the order they’re submitted, so sign up early for the best chance. If there is interest, we’ll distribute all submitted websites to other attendees, so everyone who wants to will have a chance to solicit feedback and spread the word about their site.”
