Winchester Creatives – July 2017 Edition

7th July 2017

July saw another fantastic Winchester Creatives meetup at the Studio.

First of all I must say a huge “THANK YOU” to everyone that came! The turnout was impressive, with a great number of new faces among the regulars. The atmosphere was amazing, and the weather - once again - was fantastic, so we were able to spill out into the courtyard and enjoy the Summer evening.

Special thanks go to our guest speaker - Emma Budd from Etch.

Emma delivered an excellent and enjoyable talk entitled "Let me google that for you: 10 SEO tips for getting more traffic from organic search" - the slides of which can be found here.

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is something everyone in the digital creative industry would benefit from knowing at least the basics of. And at its elemental level, we need to ensure that the content we create is legible and user friendly. Emma gave us some excellent tips on increasing visibility in search engines using a mixture of technical know-how and good old common sense. :)

The Stable in Winchester actually managed to exceed their usual awesome standards, catering also for our vegan and coeliac guests! The pizzas were eaten in record time, with universal contentment. Many thanks, once again, to Matt - manager of the best pizza restaurant (in our opinion) in Winchester - and his team for their generosity.

There was also cake to celebrate Graham's 1st year at the Studio!

Our next get together is on Tuesday 1st August. We have another awesome talk lined up - more details of which will be available soon! - but as usual you can grab a ticket here in the meantime.

Hope to see you there!
