A workshop called a Bring Your Own Laptop Party is one of the services I offer. These are hands-on workshops that business owners can either host or attend in their home or office to learn online presence techniques. Gathering group of friend or colleagues together to work on their online presence projects is a fun and non-threatening way to learn effective new skills. Students attend the workshop by bringing their own laptop and any supporting material they may need such as images or text/copy to use.
The workshop can either be open-ended such as the one in the video below, which was a “Wine and Websites” party, or it can be a structured class where I teach the guests a specific skill such as creating a Facebook Fan Page, starting a blog, or tweaking their search engine optimization. These classes are a lot of fun, and the guests feel like they accomplish things they never could have on their own!
In the video below you’ll see some of my students discussing what they are working on at my latest workshop. I’ve found that people love the relaxed atmosphere of a social party, with me there as a resource to answer questions, help when they get stuck, or fix any mistakes. Students work on any variety of social media and online presence tasks, and sometimes they come just to get things done that they’ve been putting off!
