ST. LOUIS – January 6, 2011 – St. Louis based Internet strategy, web design, web development, and digital marketing agency, SteadyRain launches a successful educational series, 2Connect, for the advancement of clients in the field of digital technology.

SteadyRain launched the 2Connect educational series by hosting a technology party in conjunction with both the Missouri Governor’s Conference on Tourism and the launch of the redesigned Missouri Division of Tourism’s site, The 2Connect event highlighted both mobile technology and online marketing. These points of interest featured a self-promotional Apple iPad application and an online marketing quiz that was designed to test knowledge on search engine optimization, paid advertising, and social media.

Due to the large success found at the 2Connect event, SteadyRain expanded the series into 2Connect University. In 2010, these educational seminars focused on online marketing and mobile technology and were offered to current clients and interested professionals. These seminars received great response and were at full capacity.

“Moving in the direction of educating our current and potential clients in the areas that are becoming everyday conversations, but are shrouded in misinformation and confusion within the complexity, is our goal as a business,” said Thompson Knox, Executive Vice President. “We feel these events provide business professionals the clarity they need to understand these conversations and to bring these technologies into their future business strategies as the economy begins to grow again.”

SteadyRain is kicking off 2011 with “On The Move With Mobile Technology” on January 6 and “Leveraging Social Media For Success” on January 26. SteadyRain plans to expand the 2Connect University seminars to include valuable education on content management, ecommerce, Internet strategy, and knowledge management. The seminars will include high level introductions as well as in-depth education on the more complex subject areas.
