Building a Successful & Profitable Website

Posted in School and Classes on April 28th, 2009 by admin – Be the first to comment

This one day course is offered through Camosun College’s Continuing Education. I haven’t sat in on Michael’s course, but I’ve heard it’s a great session. See advert below.

Many websites just don’t work as well as they could. This informative seminar will help you define the core problems and solutions for your site. Find out what web site strategies really produce results — factors you can implement without any specialized technical knowledge or software, and with little or no monetary investment.

You will learn what to include on your website and why, tips on writing for the Web, how to structure content and how to carry out keyword optimization. Learn to make effective use of the two most powerful promotional channels — search engines and linking.

You will leave with many suggestions to enhance your website. Seminar format — not a hands-on workshop.

2009Q3 BSCM 655V 001 • May 11 (1 sess) • $50
Michael Linehan • Mon • 6:30-9:30pm • Camosun, Interurban
