Think Geek: How to Win at Websites with Kira Derryberry
After 20 minutes of listening to the instrumental version of My Heart Will Go On, you’re tired, frustrated, and you’d rather stab a fork in your eye than talk to tech support about your website. To top it off, the person you finally get on the phone is talking in so many acronyms he may as well be speaking Klingon. Arg! But what if you could speak the language?
Join Kira Derryberry as she explains the ins and outs of making your website work for you so that you can spend more of your valuable time making images! She’ll share methods that work best for our industry to get information to your clients efficiently without compromising on design. Focusing on WordPress as a content management system, Kira will reveal how blogging can engage your audience while enhancing your SEO, common pitfalls to avoid, and how to get started (or even start over) the right way. You’ll leave this program with a better understanding of how your website works and armed with the knowledge on how to make it better!
