Businesses are losing money every day by not embracing the Internet. This new course will teach any business owner to build a website that will begin generating leads immediately - James Martell
Vancouver, British Columbia (PRWEB) June 08, 2013
According to a recent research report, a massive 60% of small businesses in the UK still have no online presence at all. (http://www.guardian.co.uk/small-business-network/2012/oct/19/businesses-need-websites)
In an era where the majority of buyers are using the Internet to make their purchases and buying decisions, it is not optional to have a website - it is imperative.
What is even more surprising is that most businesses that do have websites, do not optimize them to maximize lead generation, sales and earnings. Not only does a business need a website, no matter what niche they are in, they need one that is search engine friendly and optimized.
The School of Internet Marketing, a virtual business school that empowers small business owners to take back control of their Internet presence, understands the power of an effective website and is offering business owners a way to create an effective website quickly with “How to Build Your Website in a Weekend.”
The course is taught by Don Campbell, Founder of Expand2Web, and will teach small business owners how to build a website that is search engine ready and completely mobile/social media enabled in just a weekend. The business will be ready to generate new leads and customers through Google, Facebook, Twitter and mobile apps.
Don Campbell has helped thousands of small businesses create WordPress websites and position themselves for top local search results - delivering new customers and revenue every day from the Internet. Don regularly presents at international conferences that have included TechED, IBM WebSphere and most recently at TechCrunch 50. He has advised hundreds of companies including eBay, Amazon, FedEx, Cisco and Ford on their web content management tools.
“How to Build a Website in a Weekend” will teach business owners how to develop an attractive website that for less than 1/10th the price you’d pay a developer to build one for you. Students will be introduced to WordPress, the world’s most popular website develop platform — to steady stream generate leads, attract new customers using six explosive internet trends:
•The acceleration of local search volumes due to unprecedented smartphone adoption
•The growing ubiquity of mobile payment devices
•The release of Google+ Local
•The release of Apple Maps (and inclusion and Yelp reviews front-and-center)
•The release of the Google Maps app
•The release of Facebook nearby
“Too many small businesses are not embracing technology,” said James Martell, VP of Business Development at The School of Internet Marketing. “A recent report by the Center for an Urban Future showed that barely two-thirds of the small businesses interviewed have a website or use social media. These businesses are losing money every day by not embracing the Internet. This new course will teach any business owner to build a website that will begin generating leads immediately.”
