Hands-on Blogging Workshop

Do you want to promote your ADR practice with a blog, but don’t know where to start? Here is your opportunity to create and post your blog, live on the Internet.

Blogging helps to encourage referrals from colleagues, brand your practice, and boost your speaking engagements. Bring your laptop, and learn how to create your own ADR blog!

Our blogging expert, Vikram Rajan, will take you through the steps of setting up your own Wordpress blog and publishing your own article during the workshop (bring your finalized article). ACR-GNY members will also be able to publish their articles on the acrgny.org website.

You will also learn best practices of making your blogs engaging, learn about comments, forwards/shares, social media Likes, and Google search engine optimization.
