Dallas, TX (PRWEB) February 12, 2009
The Internet is not as cheap as it seems. Contrary to popular belief, in order to create a professional, business class website, one must invest anywhere from $10,000 to $100,000 or more. While this is only a marginal cost to large businesses (especially when you compare these costs to traditional advertising or other business ventures), it often precludes a small business owner from taking advantage of what the Internet has to offer.
In order to address this issue, and give small business owners a leg-up in a tough economy, LevelTen Interactive is launching a series of training programs that are designed to teach small business owners how to create their own value driven websites. A well designed and marketed website can provide leads, sell products, or simply bring awareness to a brand or local service.
The programs, which range from free weekly podcasts and webinars to paid small-group instruction and consultation, are designed to show a small business owner how to create and market a basic website that will outperform 90% of his or her competition online, and through some of the best free online tools. LevelTen will also create a series of more advanced training programs that will help users who require more than basic instruction.
"We get a lot of calls from small business owners where the timing just isn't right for them to be spending a large amount of money on a new website. Often these owners will end up spending money on sub-standard site, which can harm both their business and their brand. What they don't realize is that they can create a value driven website themselves - they just have to know how to do it right, which is where we come in," said Tom McCracken, Director and founder of LevelTen, "that's where the idea for these training programs came from. I hate seeing a small business waste money and time on a website that doesn't provide any value in return, and causes them to fall behind their competition, when they can just as easily make one themselves."
LevelTen is set to hold their first training program, How to Build a Next Generation Website in One day, on Saturday, February 21st from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm. Participants can expect to leave the course with a fully functional, 10-page search friendly website. More information, including course details and frequently asked questions can be found on their website, http://www.leveltendesign.com/training. LevelTen is currently holding a pricing special; signups for the February 21st session are only $248, and $350 for the session on March 10th. The price will go back up to $495 per person after March 10th.
