During this seminar, Westchester companies will learn about tools and best practices to enable their websites to sell to new languages markets - across the street and across the ocean. The seminar will focus on multilingual Web 2.0, Google tools for small businesses, search engine optimization (SEO) strategies, website translation, international payment options and internet fraud. This seminar is ideal for business owners, marketing managers, webmasters, and anyone whose business strategy includes international marketing and sales.

"Acclaro realizes that now more than ever, Westchester businesses need extra help in reaching sales goals," says Acclaro Founder and President Michael Kriz. "Selling goods and services online to new language markets opens up a world of potential buyers, but to be truly effective, businesses should know best practices for international websites."

"It's critical that a multilingual website make a good first impression, and it's not as easy as simply translating web content," says Joan Kanlian, Director of the Westchester Export Assistance Center, the local U.S. Commercial Service office. "This seminar will help businesses implement an international web strategy in order to effectively sell their products around the world."
