What is a Website Anyway? – July 12

What is a Website Anyway?
Friday, July 12, 2019
2:00 PM
$25.00

Sounds like a silly question, but it is a more complicated than you might think. The simple answer is that a website is a digital manifestation of your business and marketing plan. In other words, a business owner must have clear idea of their business plan and their marketing plan for a website to be effective.

“I tell clients, *making* a website takes a handful of hours – *planning* a website can take days or weeks.”

We discuss trends in website layouts and design, website navigation, website platforms, SEO, website secrets, and more. Most important, we discuss how your business plan, marketing plan, and customer profile are the foundation for website planning and creation.

Presenter: Leslie Connally; Business Advisor, Dallas Metropolitan SBDC
