Creating and Optimizing a Website for Your Freelance Business

March 21, 2017

Building your own website is not as hard as it looks!

When it comes to attracting serious clients online, it’s hard to beat a well-designed website with search engine optimization. In the past, this often meant paying a lot of money to a professional web designer. Not any longer.

You can create a professional site without being a web designer! Join presenter Tess Whitty for an overview of website design, templates, and hosting. Then dig a little deeper to discover what content you will want to include and what you won’t.

Don’t forget about search engine optimization

Turning up on a Google search is a function of “search engine optimization” or SEO. Tess will end her webinar with some simple strategies for optimizing your site and recommendations for tools and plug-ins that can help.

What will you learn?

  1. Basics about design, templates, and hosting
  2. What content to include and what NOT to include
  3. How to optimize the content for your target audience
  4. Basic Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
