The Ultimate Web Balance: Brand, Search, Content
(Choosing a company and system for your success)
Presented by Wendy Roe, Smart Solutions

Everything boils down to three things when you are building a successful web site. We’ll review the meat behind the brand, search and content balance to help position your site for ultimate visibility and conversions. Once you have these tools in hand, you’ll have some helpful tips to determining which company and which system to work with. From choosing a CMS to working with a design firm/agency, the balance is the key.

If you are interested in attending please contact Jen, or click "I'm Going!"
