It's true. We can't get enough of our fair city or the people who work here. So we were thrilled when the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce asked us to present at their monthly Tech Wednesday Seminar and contribute an article for their Business@Work newsletter.
On August 4, Greg Baugues presented "How to Not Get Screwed," a seminar aimed at teaching small business owners how to choose the right web vendor, successfully build a website, and use social media to gain an audience. Greg spoke about basic concepts and introduced a vocabulary that would help CCC members navigate the sometimes daunting process of creating effective web projects.
The following week, Greg and Kat wrote an article entitled "Two Strategies for Social Media Success" for the CCC's newsletter. The piece focused on companies Old Spice and web analytics firm KISSmetrics, whose groundbreaking Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook strategies are driving sales and expanding brand awareness.
