What every business owner needs to know about web sites

web-design2 hour lunch & learn format. Non-technical for business owners
Sponsored by: Noble Chamber of Commerce, Discover Church & Mid-America Technology Center

The rules for good web design have changed over the last ten years. Users have much clearer expectations of what they want from a website, mobile devices are changing the format of the display, and design standards have evolved.

Today’s most effective websites are designed with modern, no-nonsense, mobile users in mind. This two hour lunch-and-learn class will explain to business managers the best design principles for modern websites, and the most effective ways to organize your website to get results.

What you will learn:

  • Why your website should be designed like an “airport” instead of an “amusement park”.
  • Why an overpowering graphic design can actually make your site less usable.
  • How to deal with desktop, tablet and mobile users with the same design.
  • Three questions that will help you define the navigation for your site.
  • How to develop a content plan.
  • What should be on the home page.
  • Three rules to improve your search engine optimization.
  • How to measure the effectiveness of your website.

This is a non-technical seminar designed for business owners and managers. Graphic design skills are not required, and we will not be teaching how to program websites in this session.
