    Event description

    Please note: this event is run by the Small Business Development Corporation for small business owners in Western Australia only.

    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. Your 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 session will help you to determine what you want your website to do for your business. It will also explore the options to build it yourself or to engage professionals.

    This topic covers:
    • The type of website that will best meet your business needs; 
    • How to improve your existing website
    • An overview of domain names, web hosting, booking and shopping systems; 
    • The main options for website development, including hiring professional developers, using templates to build your own, or using web builder wizards;
    • Developing a site map;
    • Writing for the web; 
    • Creating images and graphics;
    • Managing SEO (search engine optimisation);
    • Monitoring website performance.

        This session is presented live and there will be an opportunity to ask questions. You will also receive a practical workbook to refer to and a Build a Website booklet for you to fill out with your plan during the session.
