It seems that there is still some confusion about what this whole Websitetology seminar is about. Please note- we used to call the seminar Blogosopher.
Simply put: you will leave the seminar with the knowledge you need to have a site that you can update and maintain yourself- that is optimized for results!
This isn’t a course on blogging- which is often written off as whining online. The blog technology is actually an actively served (meaning your content is pulled out of a database instead of from static pages) website that can be instantly searched or reformatted with just a click of a mouse.
We use the tools of the Blog software to build a better business website. What used to cost a lot of money in custom development, is now available as a pre-packaged open source solution.
You should take this course if your current site:
- Requires someone with coding knowledge to edit content or add content
- Hasn’t been updated in the last 7 days (that’s right- 7 days)
- If your site doesn’t have an RSS feed (if you don’t know what it is- you should come too)
- Doesn’t meet ADA standards for accessibility (Search engines are a lot like blind people)
- If you go to google and type in: “site:yourdomainname.com” and get back less hits than number of pages in your site (or no listing what so ever)
- If you’ve never looked at your web stats before
- If you are paying more than $12 a month for hosting
- If you are paying monthly for an e-mail list management service
- If you have multiple url’s and variations on a url
- If you have no website at all
- If your e-mail isn’t [email protected] ie [email protected] or @sbcglobal.net
- If your employees are using private e-mail addresses for business
- If you are still using Internet Explorer as your primary browser instead of Firefox
- If you are paying for clicks- or are considering it (from Google or Yahoo etc.)
- If your site traffic isn’t growing consistently
- If you aren’t on the first page of Google if you are a specialized local business
Past attendees have taken back their sites from the web geek that was charging them too much to do too little.
