A picture is worth a thousand words... but you are not an artist. How do you create high-impact graphics and videos for your website without investing in expensive image editing and video editing software? Besides the cost, who has time to learn a new skill when all you need is a great image for your website or Facebook page?

In this meetup, graphic designer Elizabeth Wood will share how the average person can create sophisticated images, 3D animations, and videos using Microsoft PowerPoint. Yes, PowerPoint can do image editing and create videos that you can use in your online digital marketing.

This live demonstration will show how to effectively create beautiful graphics and videos from the #1 program most of us already have on our computers. You don't have to be a graphic designer or videographer to create eye-catching graphics and videos. See how you can use PowerPoint to put the power into your online messaging. Elizabeth will share professional tips on how to use graphics and video to make your digital marketing memorable.

Who Should Attend?

Business owners, web developers, and employees who are involved in creating an online presence will find this meetup to be beneficial.  You will learn new ways to use traditional business software for digital marketing and social media. Employees will gain a new skill to add to their resumes. You will be amazed at what PowerPoint can do and even more amazed at how easy it is to create memorable graphics and videos with little or no experience!

Social Media Works
When You Have the Right Message

Followers on your social media do not want to see garbage posts clogging up their social media feeds. They are looking for information from your company that is useful to them. A post that says, "Thank Goodness Its Friday" is a waste of everyone's time. When you post a tip that gets an important message out, your followers will share that with their friends. Here is an example of a post by Bits & Bytes Farm about safety and the importance of wearing the proper footwear around horses. Within 26 hours this post went viral reaching over 101,000 people. It was shared 364 times in just over a day. This kind of post has 'legs' and will continue being shared for years and years because the topic is on point. Think about your message and make it valuable information for your followers on social media.

Digital Marketing & Web Site Design are not as easy as it used to be...
You need a partner who understands technology trends, traditional marketing, web design and Search Engine Optimization (SEO).
