In this session, we will cover a wide range of topics that you need to consider as part of having a successful online presence. The focus will be:

- on your brand

- your customer's experience

- the importance of content

- what platforms to use

- how to measure success

- what to do after you launch.

By the end of the session you'll have some questions to ask yourself, some practices to use when creating or improving your website, and how to track if you're doing the right thing.


This workshop is ideal for all businesses from start-ups to those aspiring to grow that are either beginning to think about putting together a website to those considering developing their site further or outsourcing development.
