97% of consumers search online for local products and services. If you don’t have a website, you’re virtually invisible to consumers looking online for businesses like yours. A website helps customers find you—whether they're down the street, across Iowa, or around the world. Once they've found you, your website shows them what sets you apart from other businesses. In this session, you will get the tools necessary to create a free domain name and website for your business in less than 90 minutes.
1 ½ hours | Free | 8:00 AM, 10:00 AM and 12:00 PM | Room 305F
