Build Your Website Fast 

These days, every business needs a website. Before you hire designers, coders or your nephew to build it for you, we’ll teach you the fundamentals so you know what’s involved. Then we’ll introduce you to tools that make creating a website relatively quickly and inexpensively. Even if you don’t want to do it all yourself, you’ll have the knowledge you need to understand who to hire and how to manage the people who can.

This workshop is for people who are planning to build a site for their business. If you already have as site, but don’t understand the main components and are having difficulty managing or maintaining it, you may find it useful as well.

You’ll learn about:

  • The different types of sites and the costs associated with building them.
  • The four main components: domain names, hosts, code and content
  • Different types of website builders and how they compare
  • How to map out a site with the right features and functionality
  • Maintaining your site with little technical expertise or cost
