Self-Marketing for the Freelance Web Geek

South by Southwest Interactive panel, Austin, TX

Sunday, March 11, 5-6PM

 

Why this topic

 

Web geeks are part nerd, part artist - and in many cases, totally missed out on the self-promotion gene. The one thing I've realized in my journey from cog-in-the-wheel programmer to independent freelancer is that marketing yourself is do-or-die skill when you're on your own.

 

Besides an excuse to get together with a smart people I like in Austin, my goal with this panel is to have a conversation about how freelancers can best establish their expertise and advertise their skills in ways that are effective - but not creepy.

 

Official Description

 

This one's going in the SXSW materials: "Tooting your own horn doesn't come easy to geeks and programmers. When you decide to go freelance, how do you market and advertise your skills as an individual?"
