Next month’s Lunch ‘n’ Learn will be led by Phyllis Jablonoswki, Certified Special Events Professional, and Owner & CEO, of Eventricity. Phyllis will highlight ways to host strategic events and event marketing to help you grow your business.

Finding ways to connect with your audience and engage with new customers can be a challenge. There is easy answer, but using events and event marketing can be a great tool in your inventory. Hosting effective events as a business can be a effective way to reach new customers, grow your brand awareness, and stand out from your competition.

  • Reach new customers with your event marketing
  • Connect with your current customers through events
  • Reach people who can't attend
  • Partner with other brands for a bigger footprint
  • Get to know your target audience better

Growing your business through events doesn’t have to be complicated though, and by following Phyllis’s simple steps, you can make your life a lot easier, and put on great events that help you meet your business goals.

This month’s Lunch ‘n’ Learn is led by align5 film President, Pat Taggart. He is going to guide you through 5 engaging video ideas for your business, and explain how to produce these videos, easily and affordably (for roughly $100). 

People tend to underestimate the power of video, and overestimate the effort and cost needed to successfully produce videos. In today’s technological age, every business should be producing videos. 

That being said, don’t fall victim to the many, classic flaws a business video can have- such as writing a script for a customer tutorial, or positioning your camera so there are floating heads in the shot. 

Video is a powerful tool. Come learn how to utilize it to your company’s advantage & enjoy some lunch while you’re at it! 

After this month’s Lunch ‘n’ Learn, you’ll know the ins and outs of:

  • Creating meaningful customer tutorials that can help increase conversions. 
  • Producing weekly update videos, opposed to the 1000 word emails that your employees ignore.
  • Wowing  your customers with a “Thank You” or “Welcome” video.
  • Increasing engagement of your newsletter by transforming it into a Company News Show. 
  • Capturing your audience's attention with “Crazy Story” videos.

This event is free for align.Space Members and $20 dollars to others interested in attending. Lunch will be provided - if there are any allergy or dietary restrictions let our Community Managers know in your RSVP email.

Having a product or service that solves an important problem is only half the battle. The other half, is a battle for your customers' attention. If your audience doesn't know what you're offering, it's highly unlikely that you're going to effectively generate sales.

Email can be a great medium to build a relationship with a segment of your audience that's already receptive to your product. By creating automated email campaigns you can make this medium more impactful. Automatically trigger the right message, to go to the right audience member, at the right time, and convert prospects into sales.

This month align.Space member John Rafferty will discuss the tools and strategies you'll want to use to create your own email sequences that will help you remain "top of mind" with your subscribers. This topic is crucial for creating time-saving ways to grow your company's sales.

After this Lunch 'n' Learn, you'll be familiar with:

  • Various platforms and online tools that enable you to schedule and automate email
  • Building IF-THEN conditions that trigger the release of emails on a particular time/date
  • Designing multi-step email sequences that garner responses from your audience
  • Endless possibilities that automated emails, triggers and "zaps" make possible

This event is free for align.Space Members and $20 dollars to others interested in attending. Lunch will be provided - if there are any allergy or dietary restrictions let our Community Managers know in your RSVP email.
