Taking Your Business Online (Virtual Conference)

Brand, build, search & sell

Even for the tech-seasoned veterans out there, taking your business online can seem a little overwhelming. We’re all pretty good at **using** the Internet — we can program our fancy thermostats, and record each new episode of “Top Gear” (automatically). But, when it comes time to **build** something on the Internet…well…that’s crazy talk.

But you know your business, your idea, needs to be online. And being online needs to help you be successful, not suck up long hours of trying to figure out code and content and how search engines work.

Well, you’re in luck. If you want to learn more about how to take your business online, attend our free virtual conference entitled “Small Business, Big Dreams — What’s Next for Your Business?” It’s coming up on June 25, 2015. We’ll talk about defining your business, registering a domain name, building your first website, selling online, and how search engines can help people find you.
