Build a website in a day

Due to COVID-19, our courses are currently suspended until further notice. Details of resumption of the vocational training programme will be communicated in due course. In the meantime, take a look at our new new online bitesize vocational training programme.

What will I learn?

This workshop will show you how, in the space of one day, you can go from having a business, to having an online business, allowing you to put your services in front of customers 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

We will show you how to create and promote a website at no cost, examining the various plug-ins and widgets that can help you market your business better and tell you about the types of content your customers want to see.

Once your website’s up and running, we’ll share our tips on the most important step – how to make sure people are looking at it. You will leave this workshop with a functioning website which you can take away and continue to develop for your business.

Once you’ve completed this workshop, we’d recommend doing our SEO made simple workshop to help you make your website more visible and get ahead of your competitors online.

IT equipment

If you intend – or have been asked to bring – your own IT equipment on site to use during the training course, please email Tracy Thornton at least four days BEFORE the course to let her know:

  • what equipment (make and model) you are bringing and plan to use
  • alternatively, if you require Prospect/Bectu to provide the equipment (as you are on a social media course), please contact Tracy straightaway.

Failure to advise us in advance can delay the start of the course.
