    Talk: Creating an effective and affordable website

    May 13, 2014 7:00 pm • Pasadena Hastings Ranch Library, Pasadena, CA • Learn more

    As a business owner, you know how important your online presence is and how helpful a website can be in helping to promote your business. But what do you do if you don’t have the funds to hire someone to build a professional, custom website?

    In this session, you’ll see how to put together a basic business website step by step. You’ll learn how to organize your content, add pages, set up a blog, include images and more. You’ll learn how not to get locked into ‘walled gardens’ so that you’re always free to expand your website, add new features, or redesign as your business grows without having to start over from scratch.
