Before the Thanksgiving holiday, we spoke at the Women Business Owners of Montgomery County (WBO) November meeting on creating a web presence or strategy that fits your business, your market, and will help you meet your goals. I have been a member of WBO for several years now and found that WBO is great way to meet other local woman business owners for networking, camaraderie, and learning.
Over the years we’ve spoken to many groups in the Washington, D.C. area like the Association of Wedding Professionals, American Independent Writers, DC Web Women, Professional Photographers Society of Greater Washington, Capital Creativity Network, and Capital PC Users Group, Entrepreneurs & Consultants Special Interest Group to name a few.
There are many business, professional, and networking organizations all over the country (and the world). They’re a great way to meet other local professionals and business owners. Most organizations have some type of web presence whether its a website or Facebook fan page. Take a few moments to search the web to find a group in your area. Search for your profession and geographic area like “photography association Washington” or “Woman Business Owners Montgomery County MD”. After you find a group that fits your circumstances, attend a few meetings. Most groups will let you test the waters to see if they are a good fit for you before joining.
If you belong to an organization and whose members want to learn more about leveraging the Web for business with websites, social media, and effective communication, or knowledge work strategies, let us know. We’d love to speak to your group and support your business success in a digital world.
