Did you know there are potential customers for your small agency who have deeply considered their problems and have a reasonable budget to apply to solving them?  Even better, they've taken the time to write out what they're looking for, and have a published process for choosing who will help them. These customers are not just a dream, but a part of the lucrative (if bureaucratic) world of the RFP.

An RFP (Request for Proposal) is a document that is issued by an organization looking for bids for more complicated projects or services. Typically, these are put out by government agencies, nonprofits, and other organizations that have a more formal process for selecting contractors, and can lead to lucrative work for disciplined designers and developers.

In this presentation, we'll learn about effective web development and marketing services RFP's, including:

* Where to find posted opportunities
* What to look for when responding to an RFP
* How to write an RFP that gets the results you need

About our presenter

Anca Mosoiu is a WordPress developer and technology consultant who has written (a few)  and answered RFP's (a lot) for many years working as part of an agency or with a crack-team of independent professionals.  With a background in enterprise IT consulting and experience working with a variety of government, nonprofit,  and corporate clients, Anca brings a seasoned perspective to those wishing to level up their consulting business.

Use the most popular content management system (CMS) to create a static website? It sounds insane but it turns out to be a powerful way to get high performing and secure websites while having the ease-of-use and plugin/theme ecosystem of WordPress.

In this session you’ll learn about why you might want to generate static sites, the big (huge!) caveats, the plugins and services you can use, and gain insight into the experiences the speaker has had migrating multiple sites.

Come prepared to learn about how you can combine the power of WordPress with the speed and security of static sites - it’s not as crazy as it sounds!

This event will discuss some coding topics. All are welcome and may benefit regardless of experience level.

If you are working with WordPress in a professional manner and know it well, then this Meetup is for you. Come meet the other WordPress experts in the area and network professionally. If you are a beginner with WordPress, this Meetup is not for you.

We will also use this Meetup to plan and decide our monthly presentation-based Meetup which happens on the fourth Monday of every month.

Beer and pizza will be provided.

Writing CSS that lasts for years can be famously difficult. Even when you’re careful scope escapes, selectors get hyper-specific, and a well-intentioned start to a frontend architecture can balloon into a spaghetti-shaped mess.

Simple methodologies and tools such as naming patterns, class usage, stylelint, and more can bring even the worst messes under control. We’ll discuss lessons learned from architecting applications for TechCrunch, GreenPeace, and PlayStation and how you can apply them in your codebase.

Web accessibility has been in the news lately, with the recent Domino's Pizza court case. Site owners often dismiss accessibility as being a fringe case irrelevant to their audience, but the principle of accessibility addresses everyday conditions that affect all kinds of users.

In this session, Clare and Stacy will discuss what "accessibility" means, why you should pay attention to it on your site, and how to build accessibility into your design and content with a little extra effort.

We'll walk you through some simple changes you can make to your WordPress content and media to make your site more usable for everyone. Side effects of better accessibility include improved SEO and a more future-proof site.

This session will include a presentation and discussion, and time for group discussion and working on websites. Bring your laptop and admin password!

Our usual schedule is:

6:00 pm - 6:20 pm Networking
6: 20 pm Introductions
6:30 presenations & discussion begins.

We'll be in our regular location in Room 166, at the southeast end of the building. First room on the left if you enter the south entrance.

Following Janet's talk, for our main presentation, Bridget C. Reed will speak to us about design and how to do it better, whether you are a designer or not. Here's her description of her presentation:

Through my post-design-school years, while working both with developers and as a developer myself, I’ve always gotten the same question: “So why does that look better than this?” By the end of this talk, you should be able to discuss the C.R.A.P. (contrast, repetition, alignment, and proximity) design principles, be able to justify last-minute design decisions, and see the worlds of design, user-experience, and accessibility differently in order to become stronger in your role.

Bio: Bridget Reed is a Philadelphia-based UX engineer, product designer, and speaker, as well as an active member of the Philly tech community. As a career-changer, she has taken part in projects ranging from advertising and branding to apparel and print, email and software to social media and web, with a constant focus on the user. On the rare occasion that she is offline, Bridget can be found hacking together ideas for the “next big” Alexa app, sampling craft beer, digging through crates of vinyl records, and exploring local brunches for the best biscuits and gravy around town.

Recurring payments are awesome for your business because they guarantee money coming in at a regular interval. But their recurring nature also makes them a little more complicated to set up in comparison to one-time payments.

You'll want to find each other at the Panera -- it's open until 9, so a 7 pm start time gives you two good hours to talk, and the internet is better there too!

The WordPress Community team is looking for some folks to take the lead in hands-on organizing your Meetups, but if you're reading this and thinking, "I've got to be a better organizer than this lame broad. At least I live on the proper side of the Continental Divide!" Then I invite you to come take over.

It could be the start of a beautiful new Meetup experience, or a whole new career!

Either way, since I'm in St. Louis, you probably should start meeting at the Panera (or as I call it, the St. Louis Bread Company 😜) and talking among yourselves. If you have specific questions about themes, the block editor or typography, please feel free to drop me a text. That's far and away the best way to get my attention for anything!

Callie Teegardin will share with you her sales secrets on how to “hunt” without your prospect feeling like a target. As people, we sometimes tend to shy away from sales but what if you started thinking about it differently. Callie will teach you how to grow your business by effectively building “know, like and trust” with your prospects both online and offline. Picture a world where your prospects have open and honest communication with you instead of avoiding you. She will share the real way to follow up and how the best successful businesses do this without being “sales-y."

What We'll Discuss:

What you will walk away from this powerful session with:

• The secret formula to building “Know, Like and Trust” with your prospects
• What is an ideal sales process that you can use immediately
• How sharing stories can help during your sales process
• Why the real fortune is in the follow-up and how to follow-up like a pro

About The Speaker:
After graduating from the University of Notre Dame, Callie spent 12 years in Corporate America in all aspects of sales from cold calling locally in Houston, to National Accounts, to managing a sales team. During this time she learned that the Fortune is in the Follow Up and that successful sales people and businesses do this best. In 2006, she started her own business and then started a second business in 2009 – the same year she left Corporate America. She is currently and Affiliate with SendOutCards and was named the 2019 Runner Affiliate of the Year.

From the lessons she learned in Corporate and the trials and errors she has made as a business owner, she shares her experiences with others. Callie specializes in helping sales professionals and business owners with networking skills and follow up so they can build better business relationships.

Raise your hand if you blog or plan to blog but never seem to find the time. If your hand is up, this Meetup is for you! Bring your computer, pen and paper, and all those great ideas you have rambling around in your head and join us for a another night of blogging!

We’ll be meeting again in the Starbucks café in Barnes and Noble at 6:30pm. There will be a short time of chatting; come early and get a cup of coffee. Then we’ll split up and find cozy spots to work quietly on our individual blogs. If you need inspiration, stroll past the blogging section of books! One of us will stay in the cafe area in case you have questions or need help with technical issues with your blog. Afterwards we’ll all reconvene in the café to talk and hang out until the last person leaves!

*Note: this is not a typical type of Meetup for our group. This is a "working" Meetup designed to give you an opportunity to get work done on your blog as well as do a little socializing. Please come ready to blog with an existing blog and a laptop/device.
*Another note: There aren't many outlets available besides a couple in the cafe, so make sure you have a full battery on your laptop or tablet!

Internet APIs can offer consistently changing information for your website, making your site much more dynamic and therefore much more interesting to Google. We'll cover:

1. What is an API?
2. What kind of information can I pull into my website?
3. Once I have this information, how can I make it work for me?

Already familiar with API's? Bring your own examples, and as time permits you'll have the opportunity to share!

A reminder - we meet the 2nd Thursday of every month at 3rd Street Stuff for what we call "Happiness Bar" - WordPress Happiness is solving or finding a solution to something that has confused or alluded us. This is the pace to find answers to problems with your WordPress Site

Mon 25 November we will be reviewing WordCamp US which was held in St. Louis November 1-3. There was a lot going on and a lot of new information was presented. There were several thousand who attended as well as several from our Central Ky group.

WordCamp US 2020 will again return to St. Louis - and will be October 27-29 --- they are changing from the traditional weekend to Tuesday thru Thursday. The site will be up soon - http://2020.us.worcamp.org

Remember Lynda has WordPress and other useful classes and is free for anyone with a Lexington Library card. If you look at the Lynda classes there are some classes available now for WordPress with Gutenberg - and of course remember to search Lynda for classes in other things WordPress - they keep adding courses to Lynda - plus there are classes on all Adobe Products as well as other creative software like Gimp (free Photoshop replacement) for example. The old standby courses such as Word and Excel have been updated to the latest versions ...

Obviously there is a lot of help on You Tube - quality does vary - and always remember the Google is your friend when it comes to tech solutions.

The next upcoming WordCamp near here is WordCamp Dayton March 6-7 https://2020.dayton.wordcamp.org/

Due to the busy holiday schedule at the end of December there will NOT be a last Monday of December meetup - the next last Monday WordPress meetup will be Monday January 27 7:00-9:00 PM probably at the Eastside Library although that is not confirmed yet.

The website I created for the group is back up after only showing an error for several weeks -- it has been moved to my Digital Ocean VPN -- this means I can cancel one of hosting companies that I have been using that was purchased by the "conglomerate" --- what caused the site to go down? - looked like an attempted hack - the theme I am using on that site is from a company that stopped developing and supporting their themes - I will be changing the theme out soon http://kywpgeeks.com

Do you have a topic or presentation that you would like to present at one of our meetups? Do you know of anyone that would like to come and do a presentation? What are some things that you would like to learn more about? Please join out Slack group and present your ideas and thoughts

One of the things that other WordPress meetups do is after their normal meetup they go out to a late night restaurant or bar - does anyone have any ideas of anyplace fairly near the Eastside Branch (Hamburg Area) where we might go after 9PM that is open to at least 11PM serving food or snacks? I know absolutely nothing about bars or breweries and very little about restaurants so your suggestions would be a help. Again reply through the Slack group

Gain Clarity

Sometimes knowing where to begin is just too overwhelming. When you gain more clarity and focus on what you want to achieve, it's easier to look for options. Bring your big WordPress Dreams and let's see if we can help you find the first step to implementing them.

Squash the Bugs

Are you stuck? Something isn't working the way everyone else says it should. You've spent days and lost hair trying to figure it out. Maybe a few more pairs of eyes and extra brain power can help you. Bring you're buggy situations and let's see if we can fumigate your issue!

The Meetup is 2 hours long. Depending on number of participants and issues not everyone may get help for their specific issue. So, I will go in the order of RSVP's. Isn't that incentive for you to grab your spot now?

NOTE: Fishbon is a non-profit and the use of the space is only $15 per hour (with any surplus going to rent/upkeep of the space. There will be a request for a VOLUNTARY donation. You are under NO OBLIGATION to donate. Thank you!

We came up with something new for 2020: as a group, we're going to build a complex site together. There'll be something for everyone to do, from beginners to experts.

Our initial idea is to build a Meetup.com-like site using WordPress tools. We'll have a membership site with a calendar of events, a way to collect membership payments, an asynchronous chat tool, etc.

We're going to kick this project off at this meeting – we'll talk about the features we want to build, what tools we might use, who can talk on each topic, and how to manage the project. This is your chance to take part in a group learning experience. We’ll break down a large project into monthly segments. Join us to help with the planning – we want everyone’s input!

This month our members get the chance to show off their WordPress projects and have people check them out and test them. You can ask how people built their projects and what techniques they used. We also welcome any questions anyone has in regards to a WordPress project they are working on.

The intention is that the session will be attendee driven and will give attendees a chance to:
1. Show others what they're working on and have it tested and reviewed by the other attendees. (Friendly and constructive feedback only!!)
2. Ask questions - about a project you've started, or a problem/bug you've uncovered, or anything WordPress/internet related
3. Get to know other people in the local WordPress community

This will also be a great time for anyone who has any ideas on what they would like to see talked about in the group or any other ideas.

Everyone is welcome, whatever your experience level with WordPress - you are bound to find out something useful that you didn't know you needed to know!

In the WordPress Plugin Directory, many great plugins exist but are no longer maintained by their original contributors. Developers abandon plugins for a myriad of reasons. They might get too busy with other projects, something better might come along and steal their thunder, or they might not be great marketers and they simply couldn't get the word out leading to a failure of adoption. Whatever the reason, plugins don't have to die a slow death in the graveyard of once-great ideas. If there's a plugin our there that you think you might be able to improve, it might be worth a shot to ask the original contributor to take it over, as I recently did with the Radio Station plugin, which helps radio stations create show pages, show playlists, posts related to shows, a master schedule, and widgets to announce upcoming shows, current show DJ/host, or current song playing. In this talk, I'll walk through how I identified the plugin I wanted to take over and the process for doing so. We'll also cover how we now maintain the plugin on git and what our process is to manage and improve the plugin.

The November Meetup was cancelled. The group decided this was too close to WordCamp. Please join us at the December Meetup when we'll discuss WordCamp and plan next year's topics for our group. Please consider who you hear at WordCamp that would be a good presenter at our group next year. Bring your ideas and suggestions.

Do you make your living using WordPress to create websites for other people’s businesses? This new Meetup is for you! We are not about themes or plugins, rather we'll talk about aspects of having a freelance business based in WP. We’ll discuss the successes and challenges of running a small business, share stories, ask questions, share tools & resources, brainstorm ideas and generally create community for those of us who typically work in isolation.

We meet on the first Thursday of each month from 10-noon at the Wallingford Good Shepherd Center, Room 221. It’s not far from the freeway and has free parking.

PS – Please note that this Meetup is specifically for those with a freelance business that relies on WordPress and not intended for those who have their business website made in WordPress. There are many other Meetups for WordPress users.

Use this link to join the Seattle WP Slack Group (https://wpseattleslack.wordpress.com/) and then you can interact with the group in the Business Channel. We post all our Freelancer minutes on our website at: https://wpseattle.org/category/freelancers-meetup/

Does It Work? Using The New CSS Layout with Rachel Andrew

Over the past two years, we have moved from a situation where we essentially lacked a layout system for the web, to one where a complex and flexible system is emerging. A system with Grid and Flexbox as the headline features, and backed by a range of concepts and CSS properties and values which help us make sense of what it is to do layout on the web.

In this talk, we will take a look at CSS layout in a holistic way. Rather than thinking Grid or Flexbox first, we will look at the patterns we need to build, and then discover which bits of CSS we might need to use to realise them. Along the way we’ll encounter Grid, Flexbox, the BFC, Writing Modes, and some interesting things about scrolling. All part of the layout system that we now have in CSS.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER
Rachel Andrew is a front and back-end web developer, author and speaker. Author or co-author of 22 books including The New CSS Layout and a regular contributor to a number of publications both on and offline. Rachel is co-founder of the CMS Perch and Notist, Editor in Chief of Smashing Magazine, a Google Developer Expert and a Member of the CSS Working Group. She writes about business and technology on her own site at rachelandrew.co.uk.

Our Help Desk Meetups are going smashingly well. We can accommodate up about 40-50 people and we're full almost every time.

Going forward we will be we will be having Meetups especially designed for those who need help with their web sites. If you are running a WordPress site and are having issues and would like some help, then this Meetup is specifically for you. If you are a WordPress expert, by all means come and help us help out as many people as possible. Please message the admins if you want to be identified as a WordPress expert and are willing to help.

We will have 4-6 WordPress experts on hand to assist you with solving as many of your WordPress problems as possible, on-site and in real-time.

There is free wifi at the space, so all you need to bring is yourself, your laptop and your problems.

Note: There is no formal presentation planned. This Meetup is designed for people who need help and who want to connect to a WordPress expert who can solve their issues or steer them in the right direction to solve the problems they're experiencing with WordPress.

Note: Please only RSVP if you plan to attend. You don't necessarily need to have an issue that needs resolving to be able to attend. We understand that people will pick up tips and tricks by watching how issues are solved even if they don't directly apply to their own WordPress site.

As always, we‘ll order a few pizzas, bring some beers, kick on the fans (A/C being planned) and have a good time. Donations towards pizza, beer and acquiring an A/C unit are encouraged and highly appreciated.

It's OK if you want to attend but only want to observe. We recognize this is how people learn. Given our time limit of two hours, we may not be able to solve all of everyone's issues. We will try, though. If you are seeking help, please come prepared! Please have your web site loaded in a browser (there is free wifi at the space), have your WordPress admin ready, along with a short list of issues you are trying to solve.

This is a Repeating Meetup. It happens every 2nd Monday of every month unless a holiday intervenes in which it will typically pushed to 1st Monday of the month.

Most Americans are exposed from 4,000 to 10,000 marketing messages each day.

Yikes! Why in the world would someone pay attention to you or your client’s sales pitch, social post, or latest blog article?

Well, if your marketing is relevant and helpful, not interruptive, you can find ways to break through the noise.

In this interactive talk with Marc Apple, CEO Forward Push, you’ll learn how to use the four principals of inbound marketing – attract, connect, engage, and delight – to create the type of marketing people love. That’s inbound marketing.
