Long before anyone sets foot in your business they’ll visit your website – your website actually IS your brand to your customers and potential customers. According to Google’s 2016 data, 68% of consumers who conduct local searches on their smartphone go to a store within 24 hours, and nearly 50% make a purchase within a day. 91% of customers have visited a store because of an online experience and 37% use the Internet to find a store at least once per month.

So, what does your website look like? In Your Website is Your Brand, expert Brendan McGuigan will teach you how to create a mobile and web friendly website that brings customers to your door again and again, whether you have a product, provide a service or are a restaurant or retail business.

In this two-hour workshop McGuigan will cover fundamentals, and then take a deep dive into participant websites to see what works and what doesn’t.

You will learn:

• Why is a great website so important?

• How are changing demographics affecting usage habits?

• What is a mobile-friendly site, and why is it so important?

• What are some free/affordable website platforms you can use to get started today?

• What role does social media play in promoting your website?

• Where do you start if you know your website needs to improve?
