create killer websites and manage their businesses in the time I’ve been at Wix we’ve managed some major marketing wins we’ve run campaigns with the New York Yankees Conde Nast DreamWorks Animation and other huge names and who are you so i’m yael and as you may be able to hear from my accent I’m originally from cold-cold Minnesota or Minnesota as we like to say I quickly left and went over to New York City where I spent most of my young adult
life acting and dancing and doing performance art and education then I got the travel bug and I started going all over the world learning about different people and developing empowerment and life skills programs for community and then as you may have guessed I landed myself in creative marketing at Wix what about you so I’m Justin I was born and raised in Lancaster County Amish country Pennsylvania but as soon as I turned 18 I split from the
country and I’ve been a city boy ever since I spent years as a music journalist before I crossed the line into the world of marketing but in both spots I’ve always loved working with words just like UEL I’m also obsessed with travel whenever I’m not working I am backpacking I love meeting new people and just hearing their stories that’s a little bit about us where are coming to you because we’re experts we’re coming to you because we know where
to find them who what Wix is gonna have some great stories and examples of what to do and what not to do from people who have lived it themselves but you’re gonna be able to take practical real life tips from each and every episode and they’ll sound something like this creating your first web site make sure the URL is catchy and memorable you’ll want to print it post it and say it at a dinner party without the risk of anyone getting confused or
forgetting keep it short and to the point for example if the name of your clothing business is Marty’s marvelous and magical t-shirts you’ve got a cool name sure but it’s a mouthful for the Internet your URL can be as simple as Marty’s magical tees that’s something people can remember that one was for free and we hope that sounds good to you because we are excited to get started we’ve got some really cool business owners an amazing marketing
