The February meeting of Webgrrls NYC took place on Tuesday the 13th with Stephanie Agresta of Stephanie Agresta Consulting as the guest speaker. Stephanie, an internet strategy expert, spoke to Webgrrls about affiliate marketing. She answered questions from women interested in learning more about becoming involved in these online programs on either the merchant or affiliate side, and highlighted the beneficial aspects. Many were surprised just how useful--and lucrative--affiliate relationships can be.
Before Webgrrls moved on to the need/give part of the evening, chapter leader Nelly introduced Bill Fischer of AXA Advisors, the company that sponsors the location for the meeting. After he spoke a little about what he and his company do, Bill invited any Webgrrls needing advice on financial planning, insurance, or investments to contact him for a free consultation.
Then to the heart and soul of the meeting...the introductions! You never know who you could help or who might have just the solution for you. Attendees each get a minute or two at every Webgrrls networking meeting to introduce themselves and let Webgrrls know what they need and what they can offer. It was a more intimate group this month, so everyone got a little extra time. To name just a few of the professions and interests represented at the February meeting, we had owners of web design companies, members working in new media, networking experts, grass roots marketers, and accountants. Gives and needs included computer training, French and Italian lessons, internet marketing, and finding a good yoga studio, among many more.
