Dr Larisa McLoughlin will be speaking about cyberbullying and the adolescent brain, and how important it is for young people to be social connected.

During her presentation on Thursday 23, Larisa will be highlighting the following areas:

Webinar: DIY vs DONE for you: which website platform best suits your business @ Webinar
Feb 26 @ 5:00 am – 6:00 am
Webinar: DIY vs DONE for you: which website platform best suits your business @ Webinar

This workshop is designed for business owners who are yet to build a website or looking to update their existing site.

Now that you have made the decision to have a digital presence the next question is:
Do I build the website myself or hire a professional?

Not so long ago, there would have been no question of hiring a pro to get the results you want, but thanks to the rise of online tools such as website builders, it has become easier for the non-techies among you to ‘give-it-a-go’.

Just because you can though, doesn’t mean you should. It’s a decision that’s worth weighing carefully, since for some projects a professional cannot be replaced by a tool.

During this workshop you will come to understand:

  • The importance of getting your WHY right
  • Why cost is not as important as you THINK it is but INVESTMENT is
  • Why your website is equally important as your business card
  • Different type of website builders which you can use
  • What kind of site you require to ‘best-fit’ your business

This workshop is designed for business owners who are yet to build a website or looking to update their existing site.
