Networking & Discussion for Solopreneurs

First, we’ll check in with everyone – so be prepared to tell us a bit about yourself and your business.

Join this virtual Solopreneurs meeting as we open the lines for networking and discussion. After the intros, we’ll open the meeting for sharing on our marketing topic series: SEO for Solos with our special guest speaker Sara Walsh of Sara Walsh Marketing.

  • How can SEO help your online presence?
  • What SEO can you do yourself and where do you need help?
  • At what phase of the project should you bring in an SEO expert and how do you work with them?

You are welcome to bring up these or any topics to the virtual table that are relevant to your solopreneur life or work. Register now to join this virtual discussion! You are welcome to eat lunch during the meeting.
