INSTIG8, an arm of the Brattleboro Development Credit Corporation, will help small businesses and nonprofits create their own website in a workshop to be held on Thursday, March 29 from 4:30 to 6:00 pm at the BDCC office at the Cotton Mill.
The workshop will be taught by Bob Lawson, founder of Sustainable Digital, a Putney-based company specializing in web design.
Websites for small businesses and nonprofits are as common today as business cards and play a large role in promoting an enterprise or organization. With the advent of new web tools, such as Squarespace, the job of developing and maintaining a website can now be handled by people without technical training.
In this workshop, Bob Lawson will present a live demonstration of how you can create a simple website from the ground up using Squarespace’s templates and easy editor.
The website basics you’ll learn will include:
- How to select a template
- How to organize the site and its menu
- Using “Blocks” to layout pages
- Building a photo gallery
- Adding forms and other special features.
About the Instructor: Bob develops websites and provides other digital communication and technology services from his office in Putney, VT. In addition to websites, he helps both nonprofits and for-profits develop and implement their communications strategy.
