More and more people are realising that they need to create a website for their business, club or special interest group. A successful website is not something that?s created overnight using Dreamweaver, Microsoft Word or any other off-the-shelf package. That's only the beginning.

In order for websites to raise awareness about your services, products or group, websites need to be found in the search engines. Visitors to your site also need to be able to find out everything they need from your website before they actually contact you or before they purchase something.

In this presentation, Dan will introduce you to key aspects regarding running a website, such as getting into the search engines, being found by prospective visitors, gaining links to your site, making your site user-friendly and tracking who is visiting your website.

After the presentation, there will be a break, and then a Q&A session. If you have specific answers about your own website, do contact Dan with your questions, and he can prepare some answers for the Q&A session.
