Pimp Your Studio – Minneapolis Event is Official for October 9th and 10th

Pimp Your Studio Event

Pimp Your Studio Event

It’s been official for about a week but we needed to wrap up a couple loose ends. We’re excited!

The first Pimp Your Studio event will be at the Ramada – Mall of America Hotel on Friday and Saturday, October 9th and 10th. In a nutshell, it’s a real-time workshop for photographers and other creative professionals to get local and be social online, and using this knowledge to help bring customers to your actual studio.

First, the good stuff.

Here is where you can register for the event.

We narrowed the locations and decided to clearly go with the Ramada – MOA hotel for a few reasons. One is the location. It couldn’t be more convenient. (map)

The hotel is completely wireless – just turn on the Interwebz. The conference room is big enough at 1900 sq. ft. that you’ll have more than enough room to stretch and move around. We’re going to have half-round tables which allows you to work as a team while being able to watch us guide you at the same time.

Since you’ll need to bring a laptop for this workshop, there will be plug-in strips under every table to avoid any battery issues. This… is awesome.

Also, for the Saturday full-day schedule we’re providing a free soups/sandwiches/salads buffet for lunch.

The Ramada itself is completely renovated, yet unique with hints of the old deco when it was the Thunderbird. They have a huge bar and they’ll even section off part of it after Friday’s afternoon session for a happy hour. This would be a great way for us to get to know you better and give honest advice. 🙂 For more info on the hotel, feel free to visit their site.

The hotel event planner was a big plus. It was obvious she put all of our needs over her commission. Room rates are $89/night for any attendees who choose to stay overnight. This is a tad better than a discounted rate of $250/night a hotel down the street gave us.

We hope to attract many from out of town. If this is you, please consider staying for the weekend. The Twin Cities is more than awesome. The Mall of America is literally under a 10 minute walk from the Ramada which includes a light rail station that will take you to downtown Minneapolis for a whopping 2 buck debit/credit card swipe.

If you’re traveling from somewhere further like Madison, Des Moines, Sioux Falls or Fargo/Moorhead and would rather fly, we’re this far from the airport and the Ramada provides free shuttle service.

To say we’re excited about this is an understatement. Instead of presentations to give you ideas, this workshop is to literally let you create and/or improve your local search marketing and social media profiles on the spot. If you know anyone who would benefit from this, definitely let them know! They will leave the workshop with profiles set along with the knowledge and confidence to continue efforts on their own.

    That would be awesome, Barb! We’re short on numbers right now and appreciate it.

    I’m in Iowa City as we speak (type) and will be meeting my sis today for more prep and marketing to get the word out better.

  3. Thanks for every other wonderful post. Where else could anyone get
    that type of info in such a perfect approach of writing?
    I have a presentation subsequent week, and I am at the look for such
    information.
