Plan your website for now and for future growth!

Fact – 90% of people will search you online before they buy from you. So, firstly if you do not have a website you are missing out on an important opportunity for potential new customers to find you!

Your website is your chance to make a great impression and the ability for you to showcase your services, tell your potential customers why they should buy from you, as well as show that your business is legitimate and trustworthy.

However, many websites are not planned in the first place and contain mistakes that ends up with the potential customer simply leaving the site.  This workshop will help you plan for what you will need to build a website (whether by you or a professional), so you can build a winning website that works for your business.

From planning your navigation, your brand, content (written and visual), social media, adding an event calendar, email marketing, payment options to the ultimate call to action.

We will discuss:

  • Your Sitemap/Navigation
  • Content – Photos & Text
  • Contact Forms
  • Functionality Modules & Plugins
  • Call to Action
