Be Your Own Brand Evangelist: adventures in DIY branding and target audience definition
Anvil Media

Anvil Media Lunch & Learn

Join Alicia Nagel from Alicia Nagel Creative for a seminar on branding and audiences on February 12.

You might think that your target audience is “everyone”, but marketing to everyone often leads to generic messaging that goes unnoticed. Instead, show a little personality! Embrace your core values and let your passion shine through. By defining your brand and identifying your target audience(s) you can connect with your customers. When you understand your customer, you can anticipate their decision-making process and ace their evaluation of your product or service. Customers who forge a bond with your brand spread the word about your company’s awesomeness and become brand evangelists. Seminar attendees will learn how to define their brand, define their target audience(s), anticipate their audience’s decision making process, and foster brand evangelists for their company. Presentation will be followed by a brief Q&A.

Read The 5 Stages of Getting To Know Your Audience for a taste of some of the topics which will be covered.

The presentation will be an educational Lunch & Learn event from Noon to 1 p.m. at the Anvil office. Food and beverages will be provided. Register now to save your seat!

Cost: Free

EAST Knowledge - The Evolution of Hardware Design in the Home Lab
Gresham Library Computer Lab

EAST Knowledge is pleased to announce it's fourth meeting. Pat Nystrom will be giving demonstrations on his efforts to make it easier to prototype electronics at home. All are welcome!

  • What: The Evolution of Hardware Design in the Home Lab
  • Who: Pat Nystrom
  • Where: The Computer Lab at the Gresham Library
  • When: 10:30am - Noon, Saturday, February 14, 2015
  • Why: Sharing what we know

Pat Nystrom led off our EAST Knowledge series a little over a year ago, and we wanted to bring him back to see what he's been working on. He will be talking about and demonstrating two topics:

  • A dry-film soldermask process which makes home-made circuit boards much friendlier to use
  • An update on the development of his manual pick-place machine

Come and learn something new!

Solder masks are used in electronics manufacturing both to protect copper traces and to keep solder from going where it shouldn't.

Pick and place machines are devices used in electronics manufacturing. They come in various sizes, but they are commonly expensive. Pat is working on something that would be suitable and affordable for enthusiasts or prototype manufacturing.
