Minority Businesses Attend Conferences and Meetups To Grow
William Jackson, M.Ed. #MyQuestToTeach

The opportunity to grow for minority businesses can be dependent on their willingness to expand outside of their normal comfort zones.

The move outward from known circles of friends and family.

Investing in attending conferences, meetups, workshops and other events where networking is required and being an introvert is frowned on. How can your business expand and you gain Brand awareness if you do not take the time to be engaged in the

community, even at venues that are different and new?

Attending WordCamp Meetups allows for business growth that expands Brand visibility, enhances innovative business ideas, broadens networking opportunities outside of traditional business

networks and connections.

Business models are changing and for minority businesses to survive there must be continuous and strategic learning and engagement. Attending Meetups increases technical skill knowledge and builds not just skills related to technology, but builds relationships that transform the business model in

the 21st century.

Social media should now be part of any business model because SM expands Brands, enables Digital Marketing Strategies and

can move business into new markets.

Relationship building in the “open source” community is about sharing and collaboration. Everyone has value because everyone has the potential to improve, magnify, transform and enhance the WordPress platform. You do not have to be an “expert” in tech just common sense application, a passion for what you’re trying to

accomplish in business and personal success.

The eagerness and willingness to share knowledge with others. Since joining this community of coders, developers, writers, programmers, users and innovators, WordCamp provides access

to all levels of tech integration, implementation and innovation.

Web development, advances in video storytelling, Java Script, App development, SEO, SoLoMoCo integration can be applied in multiple levels,  there should be strategic planning and knowing the audience you will be marketing to. Knowledge is not powerful unless it is applied knowledge from strategic planning and


What better way to allow for valuable exchanges and relevancy than to have people speak of their successes, challenges, developing business model and how they integrate WordPress

to build their Brands and increase potential profits.

Minority businesses in order to remain relevant, visible, viable, and even profitable must integrate web development at some level. There has to be a plan that is strategic and even focused

on specific demographics.

Understanding the importance of analytics, views, engagements, influences and how video can enhance a message. People are visual learners, they need visual stimulation, application and the execution of information that is relevant. The eyes have it and see

what progressive applications are needed.

Content creation is critical to establish a Brand that represents your business, the services you provide and what your business model is. There are many avenues for minority businesses to travel even before they begin to turn a profit, Social Media is one more avenue, the rewards are long lasting to help build relationships and establishing a presence that encourages community engagement

and participation.

Do not allow just tech (SEO) to expose your business, use it to enhance your visibility to others, expand your Brand BY sponsoring,

promoting and mentor with community engagement.

Be seen in the community, be involved, be a sponsor and promoter that shows even the smallest contribution can bring rewards to new markets and engagements. Build on partnerships and collaborations

that can expand in new directions of success and influence.

If you’re a minority business  owner you must expand outside of your
comfort  zone, get involved, get engaged and get visible.
