Overthrowing Inefficiency: Workshop + Connection

Overthrowing Inefficiency: Workshop + Connection

Due to unforeseen circumstances, we just learned that Krista will not be able to join us on Saturday. I (Ali) will still be hosting the workshop, but it will be a little different. We'll start off talking about how we unintentionally build in efficiencies into our days, and how we can overcome that. We will have plenty of time for discussion on that topic and then we'll do one medium size Nurture Group (approx 8-9 women) where we will get to know each other and learn how we can help each other thrive. This is my favorite part - I am a master brainstormer so I love to hear about your challenges!

Everyone registered will be emailed and given the opportunity to stay registered, or get a refund, roll over their registration to another Allison Bishins event in the next 3 months. I hope that many of you will still join me and dive deeply into how our purpose + priorities can help overthrow inefficiency.

We'll still have treats!

AND because we'll have just one Nurture Group registration will end at 9am (still no door sales but you can sign up on your phone right before you check in.)

If you are purchasing a ticket on your phone, add to cart, and then scroll to the top of that same page and click the cart icon. Sorry for the clunky mobile checkout!

Open to all womxn (self-identifying females, cis + trans), non-binary folx + their allies. Questions or feedback? Email allisonbishins@gmail.com

Social Media Marketing: Training Workshop

Learn how to craft a simple Social Media Marketing Strategy that:

  • Doesn’t take a lot of time

  • Doesn’t cost a lot of money

  • Doesn’t make you wonder if you’re keeping up with algorithm changes

  • Doesn’t require intensive energy or drain you

  • Doesn’t require any gimmicks or paid ads.

Geared towards small businesses but open to everyone, this course covers what you can expect to get out of social media marketing, how to achieve those goals, what types of content and photography you need, and how to find and cultivate local customers. The checkout form will ask for your Instagram and Facebook pages because I do advance research on each attendee and give targeted feedback. This course also includes an annotated outline (great for taking notes!) and a 10 point Jump Start PDF to get you started on your new strategy and keep you on track.

Early bird ticket price through 5/29: $80

Regular ticket price: $100

Local Uplift: Training on Social Media as a Local Tool

Join Allison Bishins Consulting for a special, one-time workshop on Using Social Media to Find Local Customers and Build Community.

The first hour is an overview training on why - and how - to use social media (Instagram and Facebook, primarily) as a LOCAL tool, even if you don't consider yourself to be a local-focused business. How do you find customers that are near you? How do you create a local support network via these online tools? The second hour will be a group discussion and exploration of challenges to finding local customers online, tackling specific issues you have, and exploring potential avenues for different kinds of businesses (e.g. hashtags, location pins).

This workshop is open to all types of business owners, advocates, entrepreneurs, non-profits, dreamers, etc. This course is not an introduction to social media, but as long as you know how to post on Instagram and Facebook, this training will be helpful!

Early bird ticket price through May 19: $30
Regular ticket price: $40

This is not a kid friendly event and there is no onsite childcare.

Crowdsource Brainstorming and Networking

This networking event pulls from a mix of networking styles. Each of us will have 1-2 minutes to introduce ourselves (what do you do?) and tell each other what we need/could use support one (how can we help?) Then we'll spend a lot of time brainstorming suggestions around these topics and getting to know each others' businesses. We'll cap off with some time to mingle and connect on a personal level. You could be a business owner, side hustler, hobbyist, entrepreneur, dreamers or professional. All are welcome - this is a fun, cozy way to get to know people in a much deeper and more lasting way than traditional networking events!

Tickets here: https://www.allisonbishins.com/services/crowdsource-brainstorm-and-network

If you have business cards or flyers for an upcoming event - feel free to bring them, we'll have a table out for cards so that we don't have to pass them out individually!
