Elgin Technology Center Conference Room
73 S. Riverside Dr.
Elgin, IL 60120

Purpose:

We are on a mission to help every Elgin area small business succeed on the web. Businesses that are online grow 40% faster than those that aren’t. (Source: BCG Report, The Connected World: The $4.2 Trillion Opportunity, March 2012). When you help Elgin area businesses get online, you help set them up for success.

When local businesses are online, it’s easier to shop local. Money spent locally is 4x more likely to be reinvested in the community. (Source: Civic Economics, Indie Impact Study Series: Survey of Independent Businesses (p.6), Summer 2012)

With this workshop, you will be introduced to a user friendly, content and website builder called WordPress. This platform is a fast and easy way to bring your business or non-profit online in a matter of a few days. Attendees will learn the basic fundamentals of website design, how to use WordPress and be exposed to a handful of handy online resources to make your website stand out from the rest.
