Friendly SEO: An intro to getting found in Search

Come and have a pint and learn about SEO.

Everyday I'm talking with small businesses and freelancers who are scared of SEO and feel stupid asking questions.

This is the event to quash the notion that it's too complex or difficult for you to understand. I'm here to make SEO friendly and less scary.

I'll run through some basic concepts, explain why you don't always have to be top and answer your questions in a relaxed and friendly environment.

17:30 - 18:00: Arrival
18:00 - 18:45 Talk
18:45 Onwards - Questions / Drinking / Networking
I'll be setting up from around 17:00 so feel free to pop by and say hello earlier if you're at a loose end.

Where?

We're upstairs in the second room on the right at the lovely craft beer company.

Buy a pint on the way up!


Who is this talk for?

This talk is an introduction to all things SEO and is designed for anyone to turn up who wants to learn the basic concepts of what it is, and what it all means.

If you're one of the below, here's the questions I aim to answer :

Freelancers - What SEO can you do yourself? When should you outsource? Should you even bother?
Business Owners - Work with agencies but feeling lost? Unsure what you can do yourself? Understand the basic terms so that you aren't lost in meetings and understand the opportunities to grow
Entrepreneurs - Find opportunities and get a basic grasp of where to go to learn more information.
What will you learn?

What is SEO?
What does being first really mean?
Why should you "do" SEO?
What are keywords?
Who on earth am I?

I work with small businesses and freelancers to help them understand SEO and get the most out of it at the lowest cost.

I've always worked in house for small companies and there's always been a fear about search and Google which I now aim to remove so companies can grow and see how much opportunity there is for them.

Frustrated with all resources being focused on big companies with money to burn, I'm dedicated to helping smaller companies and individuals use SEO to their advantage and grow.

SEO Shouldn't be scary!

The Farm Freelancers meet up

The Brighton Farm is a networking group for freelance web designers, developers and people with related mobile/digital skills. We meet every Wednesday evening in a pub in central Brighton.

It's a relaxed event and very casual, so don't worry if you've never been networking before, we're very friendly and chat is more important than business cards. 

If you're looking for a web freelancer, our website has the skills and profiles of many in the group, and you are welcome to come along to any of our meetings for a chat. 

Generally someone in the Farm can help you do what you want, and even if we can't, we're bound to know someone who can.

Brighton Launch Event: Designers on the Terrace

Gathered on the sunny terrace at The Projects, a state-of-the-art co-working space near the sea, we will share some insight for established and aspiring graphic designers on how to get work as a graphic designer in film, TV and live events. And because we’re in the mood to celebrate, the pizza and drinks are on us!

Once everyone is suitably refreshed and acquainted, there will be a short introduction from the owner of Artwork Bazaar, Attila Raczkevy, on what the community and marketplace is all about and how it can help designers get more work. We also hope to bring along some established designers who will be open to sharing their stories and offering advice during the evening.

There will be a range of free drinks and pizza for everyone to enjoy, just get there early if you want a slice!

The event is primarily for aspiring graphic designers who want more work in film, TV and live events, whether established or brand new to the industry. However, we also welcome producers, researchers and event planners who want to know more about the marketplace or source designers for your next project! We will also be inviting and welcoming graphic designers who are already working in the industry to share their story and offer some advice on how you can get work as a graphic design in film, TV and live events.
