Just about every business needs a website. Even if customers don't actually buy online, they are still doing extensive online research before making a purchase. Having a website provides the perfect opportunity for you to showcase your goods or services and to engage with current and potential customers.

Trying to decide where to start your website journey can be overwhelming. This workshop will help you to determine what you want a website to do for your business. It will also explore the options to build it yourself or to engage professionals.
