Website DIY

Are you finding that building and maintaining your website is costly? Is it difficult that you don’t fully control it? Fed up of low quality free sites? Building your own quality website with your own domain name, personalised email addresses, content and design is comparatively straightforward - and cost effective – no programming is required. It does take some training and practice; our programme explains both the positives and negatives of this approach. We will show you the key steps - and a wealth of hints and tips – we have done this as a small business. Our programme is NOT for developers or programmers – our objective is to walk you through a step by step classroom programme that shows how the tools work - and the steps you need to follow. It’s not a “hands on” programme either – so you just need to be there when you book a place. Our approach also demonstrates software tools that deliver a responsive website for mobiles, tablets and PCs. At the end of the programme we will issue a step by step guide. This one day course is designed to make you aware of the capability that is available, how you can access it - and the costs involved. The cost of the programme is £75.00 for the day. Our business objective is not to build websites for you, it’s much better if you learn to do it for yourself. Our contact email for more information is admin@data-trainingworx.co.uk See our website https://data-trainingworx.co.uk for the details, terms/conditions and the booking process. Venue and start time will be confirmed.
