What did we do in August?
I can’t believe it’s the 1st of September. The entire year is flying by, especially August! Where did August go? Let’s retrace our steps and see what we got up to.
First Friday Networking
On Friday 2nd of August, we attended First Friday Networking. The turn out was great and now that we’ve been going for a few months, we’re really starting to get to know the great businesses on the Portsmouth networking scene. This event has a nice vibe and it’s a great example of no pressure networking.
The next First Friday is this week on the 6th September. Here are the details.
Thursday 8th we went to our first ZW Connect networking event. The turn out was incredible! Around 45 individuals came along. It was great to meet so many new businesses as well as get to know many we had met before. I’m told that this event normally has some time set aside for short pitches but it was so busy there wasn’t enough time.
To attend the next event on 13th September, sign up here.
The Incuhive Space, Winchester (Guest Hosts)
We attend this event every month and meet loads of like-minded people in business. This month we were asked to guest host the event on behalf of Southampton Networking. Though it was a privilege to be asked, we can’t take all the credit as George, co-owner of Incuhive, was on hand to do a lot of the work! If you like beer, networking and getting to know like-minded individuals, then come along to the next event.

We continued to dedicate our Wednesday’s to giving away free website tips. Throughout August we created a #websitewednesday mini-series based on the YoastSEO plugin for WordPress. We taught you how to decide your meta titles and how to write meta descriptions. We taught you about slugs and how to change them. Finally, we discussed the Readability section of Yoast and told you about how the plugin scans through your content and gives you helpful feedback to optimise your text.
Here’s a list of the blogs, take a read and let us know what you think.
For the final blog of the month we revisited our first-ever #websitewednesday tip, Keep Navbars Short. We’ve been typing these blogs up for a couple of months now, but we understand that not everyone likes reading. We’re now revisiting each blog and creating a video to go alongside it.

This September we’re going to talk a lot more about the free homepage mockups that we give away to ANYONE! If you’re in need of a new website or perhaps intrigued as to what your existing website could look like with a lick of new paint, then send us your logo and a link to your current website (if you have one) and we’ll put a no-obligation mockup together for you.
