High Rock Marketing and Web Design Workshop Opens Doors for Carroll County Marketers
September 24, 2012
On Friday, September 21, High Rock held its long-running LeftBrain® marketing and web design workshop for the first time in Carroll County, Maryland. Hosted at the beautifully renovated Carroll Arts Center and sponsored by Valpak and Citybizlist Baltimore, the free event drew a solid crowd of local business owners and agencies.
Following lunch and introductions, the workshop opened with a brief presentation by Valpak’s Westminster representative. High Rock President Rich Daughtridge and LeftBrain® Project Manager Kristen Grove then moved into a discussion of web design, the LeftBrain® content management system, social media integration, search engine marketing and mobile compatibility.
The demonstration led to a lively Q&A that covered topics like keyword selection through Google AdWords, developing the proper type of content, LeftBrain® features like the photo editing plug-in, responsive design, and more.
“We were thrilled with the attendance and participation from the audience, which included some of High Rock’s valued clients as well as a number of new faces,” said Grove. “In particular, the excitement about LeftBrain’s in-development responsive design capabilities showed that the business community here is thinking ahead.”
The event wrapped with High Rock’s customary iPad® giveaway prize drawing, along with an additional winner of an Outback Steakhouse gift card from Valpak.
“We couldn’t have done it without the help of Valpak’s General Sales Manager, Shelley Collins, along with Jennifer Heinlein and Jay Rickey of Citybizlist,” noted Daughtridge, “not to mention the incredible team and gorgeous facility at Carroll Arts Center.”
As a result of the continued success of the workshop series, High Rock is planning yet another expansion, this time into Howard County, with the event currently slated for November. In the meantime, registration has already begun for October’s free LeftBrain® Workshop and Demo in Hagerstown. Those interested in attending can sign up here.
