KELSIE GUIDRY

Monday, April 8, 2019 from 9am – Noon

This workshop is for photographer entrepreneurs who are looking to expand their business through the use of web marketing. This includes websites, social media, search advertising, and content marketing.

The purpose of this workshop is to increase participants’ understanding of web marketing techniques and provide resources to perform or outsource web marketing projects. It is hoped that those who take this workshop will be able to extend their entities life online to be found, seen, and obtain new customers; and to ultimately do all this through delegating.

As a result of attending this course, participants will be able to perform more effective and productive means of web marketing. They will also be able to work more effectively with teams, so that those working with the photographer’s brand are more aligned with the concepts and techniques of new day web marketing.

Kelsi Guidry is an entrepreneur born and raised in Cut Off Louisiana. He and his wife have been living in another world in Northeast Louisiana for the last 10 years, but now they are moving back down home to South Louisiana.

Kelsi started his first business in 2007 when he was 21 years old while being a student at Nicholls State. Over the years he has started various ventures such as a social networking website for teens, an auto parts brokerage, insurance agency, and a website development company.

Although some of his businesses have started and failed, Kelsi sees his failures as a chance to learn and move forward to what may become his next success.

His original business, MyWants, provides small business resources online as well as consulting services, typically focused on web marketing. His latest startup is BizGofer, a web and app based Business Assistant backed by a network of freelancers known as Gofers. He hopes to join all of his past experiences and resources into one point of services to best help other entrepreneurs simply get things done.

Kelsi’s background in starting businesses, working with other small businesses, website development, and web marketing has given him the experience to continue pursuing his career as an entrepreneur and helping others learn through his successes and failures. He leads his live by the quote from Zig Ziglar, “You will get all you want in life if you help enough other people get what they want”.
