Website workshop set for Aug. 19

The Alaska Small Business Development Center will host one-day workshop on how to build a website next month.

The fee is $65 and the online registration deadline is Aug. 10. Prepayment and preregistration are required through an online credit card system or by submitting cash or check at Alaska SBDC. There is no webinar option for this class, and seating is limited.

Sign in is at 8:30 a.m. and the class begins at 9 a.m. It will be at the Homer Chamber of Commerce. There will be a break for lunch at noon, then the class resumes at 1 p.m. and runs until 4 p.m.

No experience is necessary. The workshop will walk participants through the steps necessary to build a website.

The first part of this workshop is lecture based. Participants will learn about website design, including picking colors, graphics, fonts, navigation, content and more. Participants will learn how to set up their own e-commerce, online store to make online sales. They also will learn some key tips for making a website that markets a business effectively. 

After lunch, participants will  begin designing their website and get hands-on experience with the design tools and creative process. By the time participants leave class, their businesses will have a fully functioning website, ready to “go live” with all the knowledge needed to maintain it.

Participants are asked to bring a laptop computer. Those who do not have one should notify the ASBDC when they register. A limited number of laptops are available. Participants also should bring any business logos and graphics they would like to have on their website.  

 “Imagine walking into a workshop with just your laptop and leaving with an amazing, professional website that you’ve designed yourself,” say organizers in a press release.
