Free Website for Lucky Winner to be Built during Staten Island Web Design Workshop
Fast Smart Web Design holds the first of three "Website 101" workshops on Staten Island this Thursday, July 5. Workshop 1 is "How Much Do You Have to Pay for a Website?" One participant gets a free sample website built live during the session.
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.
