ED SIGNS (773.436.5764)
6229 South Kedzie Avenue, Chicago IL 60629
Owners Gerardo and Erika Alvarez attended Tech Thursdays with hopes to gain an understanding of how to better use the Internet and software applications to support their signage business. Particularly interested in the third session of five presented that year, Technology & The Cloud, the owners promptly began the process of moving their business files to a Google cloud application. Their reasons for making the transition included the scalable storage capacity for their large graphic files and the ability for associates and clients to easily and independently access these files on demand.
LAW OFFICE OF LYNETTE LEWIS (773.742.6386)
2149 West 95th Street, Chicago IL 60643
Attorney Lynette Lewis attended Tech Thursdays to explore new ways of integrating technology within the operations of her law practice. After leaving the second session, Lists, Email & Social Marketing, Lynette decided an email marketing application would simplify mass communication with her clients. Upon relocation of her offices, Lynette selected Constant Contact as the application to manage the distribution of her email announcements. She found the application to be more efficient and less costly than postal mail.
KAMBEROS INSURANCE AGENCY (773.471.2060)
5905 South Kedzie Avenue, Chicago IL 60629
Owner Daiva Kamberos attended Tech Thursdays to learn more about how to create a website for her insurance agency. Daiva wanted to understand the differences in website design and what design elements would be most effective for her online presence. She left the first session, Websites, Wi-Fi & Mobile Devices, with enough information to select the most effective design elements for her first website. The website model she selected is a local page embedded within a larger national insurance website. When prospects visit the larger site and enter their zip code they are forwarded to a directory linking to her local page. By embedding her page within a larger website Daiva offers her prospects tools to research her offerings and request a quote online that would be very expensive to develop on her own.
