Live Now at WORD11 LIVESTREAM
At noon PST/3PM EST Wednesday, July 27, 2011 (tomorrow), I will be presenting UX: Developing Content to Enhance the User Experience in a livestream audiocast for the Word11 Pre-Event: Prefix. It’s free and open to all, especially those interested in web publishing, blogging, and social media.
I will be discussing blog writing and content generation to enhance the user experience. What it takes to create content which meets your goals and encourages visitor conversions to loyal fans. We’ll taste appetizers filled with web analytics, demographics, customer touch points, and show you the basics of how to serve up tasty content that makes them keep coming back for more. Of course, the main focus will be on doing this all with WordPress, the powerhouse of web publishing.
UPDATE: They’ve added me for an afternoon session at 5PM PST/8PM EST to talk about WordPress. It’s an open session to answer a variety of WordPress questions, from tags and categories, speed blogging tips and techniques, WordPress Plugins, import/export, whatever you want to cover, we’ll be talking about WordPress.
Other speakers scheduled so far include Fernando Fonseca on “Using social media for social change,” Erin Marchak on Drupal, and Elana Roth on SquareSpace.
WORD11 August 27, 2011, in Toronto is being called the world’s first 24-HOUR blogging festival where participants will come together to learn everything there is about blogging and web publishing, including about WordPress and other publishing platforms, content building, building fan bases, social media, customer engagement, and design and development. It’s part conference part unconference, and a lot of blogging. According to the organizers, it’s focused on “the word” as in the power of words to influence and educate the world.
Come join the pre-festival fun tomorrow and join the rest of the crew in Toronto in August to celebrate how blogging has changed the world and where it is going in the future.
