You’ve got a small business with a great product or service and now you need to let people know about it. You could spend a fortune on print advertising in the hopes that someone might see your ad and call, or you could promote your business on the Internet, be found 24 hours a day, and reach a potential audience of millions. Which do you think would be more successful for your business?
Of course, having a website is not as simple as calling up the local paper, booking an ad and approving the layout.
First, you need to learn a lot of tricky code with acronyms like HTML, CSS, PHP, etc.
OR… puzzle over which webhost has the best do-it-yourself site builder package and then figure out how to get your site listed on Google and Yahoo,
OR… you could talk with a local web designer about your needs and hope that they know what they’re doing,
OR… you could learn how to tell whether a web design company actually knows their stuff, whether they understand search engine optimization and SEO copywriting, if they comply with the latest Internet standards and accessibility laws and are able to provide you with a website you can update yourself.
But how can you tell the difference between a hobbyist and a professional web designer? Well, if you live around Brighton, Ontario, you’re in luck. During the month of June, poloDesign is offering a series of three seminars called “Embracing the Internet: Taking Your Business Online“. Our aim is to help you take the first steps toward a website that will work for you. For an incredibly low cost of $50, you’ll find out how to:
- assess your website needs and choose between the options available,
- develop your content and how search engine optimization works
- promote your business through Social Media (Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn)
The cost for a single seminar is $20 but here’s the best part – if you sign up for all three seminars, you’ll be entered to win a 5-page updatable website including 1 year of webhosting and 1 domain, valued at $995!
Yes, that’s right – you could WIN A WEBSITE!
For full details about these courses, please visit the seminar page on our website.
If you live in Brighton, Quinte West, Belleville, Cobourg or anywhere in between, make the right first step toward building a website that will bring value to your company. And if you already have a website but are thinking it’s time for an update, these seminars will help you increase the value of your online investment.
