These days, reputable businesses are expected to have a website and businesses without one give the impression of being outdated to many consumers. An engaging and informative website is the foundation for most successful businesses around the world, whether or not they have a brick and mortar building. Unfortunately, many small business owners forego this critical business tool because they cannot afford the high price of many developers and they lack the skills to build a website themselves. This workshop will demonstrate how anyone, with only very basic computer keyboarding skills, can create a professional website in a single weekend, and in some cases in a few short hours. Participants will learn how to obtain their own website address, select a hosting company, install Wordpress, set up their website navigation, upload pictures and text, create links within their mock website, add products to sell and more. Each participant needs to bring a laptop computer and a folder/flash drive of pictures/images/business logo to create a webpage.Stock images for exercises may be available but participant’s own logos and images are preferred.
