What are you able to say about your website currently: is it an attractive storefront for your business, or a bit of a mess? Does it highlight your business' best qualities or does it simply cover up some clear deficiencies? Flaws and common mistakes can be less glaring, but can still be very harmful to your overall bottomline.
The purpose of the Brampton Wordpress Meetup - Fix My Site Clinic is to help you understand how to do a better job at moving people through your website and in essence, helping you connect with your audience, whether it be potential clients, customers or readers.
Spend a couple of hours each month with a friendly, bubbly group of like-minded entrepreneurs, coders, Wordpress enthusiasts and get your most pertinent questions solved, and build some connections along the way as well... Everybody wins!
This meetup is a virtual, group site-clinic. The host(s) are experienced WordPress developers. All meeting attendees will work to help fix an issue or address a challenge someone in the meetup is facing. We help each other succeed!
The meeting will be held online at this Zoom link:

To gain priority for your "help" request, please explain your issue prior to the meeting in the comments section below on meetup.com. We will address these issues first.
Participating before the meetup by submitting your question with your URL in the Comment section will allow attendees and hosts to offer immediate advice before the meeting and get your question PRIORITIZED at the meetup. Please be clear, concise and include your website and all relevant links. Let us know what steps you've taken to try to fix your problem and where you're stuck. If there are any fixes or issues that the group can't get to in time, someone in the meetup may tackle them with you 1 on 1, online or in the next meeting.
***Important Note*** The hosts/attendees are not responsible for any breaks that may occur during the process of attempting to fix your site at the meeting (or afterwards). The hosts HIGHLY recommend you have a backup of your site, just in case something unexpected happens. You can also let us know that you'd like ideas on fixes rather than actually attempting a fix during the meeting.
A video of previous meetups, recaps with links and chat summaries are available online.

This is a meetup in our "Not Beginner" series. This series is all the talks that cover anything that is "not beginner". Talks in this series will range from not very advanced at all - just barely above beginner - to deep dive dev talks.
Anyone at any experience level is welcome to attend, but for "not beginner" talks there will be an assumption in the presentations and discussion that attendees have some knowledge of WordPress, and/or the presented topic.
