Websites & Ecommerce

Websites are a necessity for many businesses, but most small business owners shy away because of the cost and the technological skill. With all the tools and technology that exist today, websites have never been easier! We will go over the biggest website design tools, basic guidelines, and search engine ranking. After the first hour and a break, we will focus on ecommerce and selling your product on your own website or a third-party seller. Feel free to come to only one half or the other, depending on your business interest.

 

Led by Sami Postma, Education Coordinator, Goosefoot
