A core part of any online presence should be a well-designed and optimised website. Our Wordpress Workshop will teach participants how to make and design a website for free and manage it easily by using WordPress as a content management tool.

Having a well-designed website is great but does not make business sense if it is not attracting enough traffic, it is important that a website is also optimised to attract potential customers.
