About the Course

You no longer need to be a web developer to build a quality website; however, with the overwhelming number of available options, it can be difficult to know where to start, or how to choose the option that will work best for you.

This class will walk you through the fundamentals of creating a website, from the earliest planning stages to the final technical details. We’ll walk through how to assess your current and future needs so you can choose the right tools for your budget and skillset. And we’ll talk about breaking your project down into manageable steps, including branding, content creation, design, and web development, so that you end up with a powerful tool to support your marketing efforts.
