Website Optimisation Essentials

With more than 80 per cent of Australians stating they are internet users, rising to 97 per cent of those on high-er incomes, it is essential for your business to have an online presence. Even if they don’t buy online, customers will use the internet to research and compare products and services.

This workshop is for anyone who wants to understand the main concepts of building a website (or contracting a professional developer) and people who want more customers to find them online.

This workshop will:
•Provide an overview of website types and features
•Help you to choose and secure your domain name
•Explore e-commerce options and ways to keep customers engaged
•Look at the pros and cons of building your own website or outsourcing
•Help to write a brief for your website developer
•Offer tips to improve your site’s SEO (search engine optimisation) so customers can find you

 


Using Social Media in your Business

Your customers are very likely to be using social media so it’s important your business is too.

While social media has rapidly become an essential in the small business operator’s marketing toolkit, just posting to your Facebook page or regularly ‘tweeting’ is no longer enough – your online activities need a strategic direction.

This workshop is aimed at anyone who wants to understand the basics of social media, plus those who are lack-ing the skills and confidence to actively join the online conversation.

This workshop will:
•Provide an overview as to why having a social media presence is a must for all businesses
•Help you to leverage social media to increase your brand’s presence
•Show you how to include social media into your marketing plan
•Provide practical steps to maximise your social media presence and drive traffic to your website
