In this session you will learn all you need about the building of a professional standard website including how much is the proper cost to pay for everything, the minimum standard of professional service, the source of thousands of free extensions and free templates, which textbooks to get hold of, SEO formatting and marketing, how to create an article, to categorise your content, to upload media assets, to utilise media tools, to create a menu module and menu items, and to upload extensions and templates.
You are welcome to attend more than once and to invite others that need to build a website. We are able to answer all of your questions and welcome all social, commercial and political entrepreneurs.
