Event description

Description

  • Attendees will need to bring a laptop to this session. If you are unable please let us know and we shall arrange one to be available for you.
  • Attendees need no prior knowledge of coding or website building, but should be comfortable in using a laptop and website browser such as Google Chrome or Safari.

For many freelancers and sole traders, the idea of having a website feels like a luxury, and an expensive one at that. Many will even question whether they need to have a website, but in almost all cases the answer is yes. People are online right now looking for products, services and providers, if you’re not there to be found they’re spending their money with someone else. This workshop will show you how in the space of one day, you can go from having a business, to having an online business, allowing you to be putting your services in front of customers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

We will show you how to create and promote a website at no cost with Wordpress.com, examining the various plugins and widgets that can help you market your business better and tell you about the types of content your customers want to see. Then once your website’s up and running, we’ll share our tips on the most important step, how to make sure people are looking at it. You will leave this workshop with a functioning website which you can take away and continue to develop for your business.
