BookingLive 3 Event: A Summary
On Wednesday 10th September the BookingLive team travelled to London to host the official event for V3 of our online booking software. The event provided attendees with the opportunity to see some of BookingLive 3's new features for themselves. Big thanks go to The Frontline Club for their use of venue space, our guest speakers and all those who attended. I think they'll agree it was a great evening, not just because of the complimentary drinks and chocolate!
The event started with Vinnie, BookingLive's Sales Executive, kicking things off by introducing the team and what we do here at BookingLive. Our guest speakers then took to the stage with their great presentations about website design and SEO - we learned a lot! BookingLive's Robert then spoke about the most anticipated and exciting part of the evening: the launch of online booking software BookingLive 3.
Our first guest speaker was Arthur from Skylark Creative, one of our design agency partners. He gave a great presentation about web design and how it can help businesses engage users online. Arthur kindly wrote about his presentation in a blog post which can be found on their website.
Next we had Cara from Reload Digital who spoke to us about SEO - search engine optimisation - which she defined as the "process of modifying a website to improve its (organic) visibility for generic search terms". Our audience heard some exciting new tips and tricks to implement within their online strategy.
Both presentations were really informative and we're very grateful to both speakers for spending their evening with us. You can find copies of both Skylark Creative's and Reload Digital's event presentations on our Slideshare page. For more information about website design and SEO please contact us.
