One participant, chosen by raffle, gets a free sample website built live during the session. All participants are welcome to bring their laptops and follow along step by step.
Topics to be covered are:
* How many types of websites are there, and which is the right type for you?
* Is “free” good? How to know you’ve outgrown “free.”
* The three pieces you have to pay for, when you pay for a website, and how much they cost.
* How to get paid: PayPal, Google Checkout, PaySimple, and other systems for collecting money.
Part 2, July 12, is titled "Pick a Color, Any Color--The Surprising Secrets of Effective Design," and Part 3, July 19, is "SEO--What’s Your Story and How Do You Tell People?"
The cost is $15 per person, with $5 donated to Netpreneurs and Christ Church's Capital Campaign. For directions, see http://christchurchnbrighton.org/
The three workshops can be taken together or individually. Each session is 90 minutes and includes take-home information.
