From User Experience to Privacy, the Workshop Helps Startups Create Websites to Drive Traffic
LONGMONT, CO (September 30, 2020) – Avocet Communications, a Longmont, CO-based and nationally recognized marketing agency known for its fully integrated marketing strategies, hosted a website-build training workshop earlier this week for local entrepreneurs as part of its association with the nonprofit Entrepreneurship for All (EforAll).
Avocet has long-been committed to giving local startups and entrepreneurs the foundation they need to launch their customer-facing websites. The workshop covered several key areas, including getting started, how to get a domain name, how to pick a platform and a hosting provider, privacy and security, powerful SEO basics, what makes good user experience design, and content insight.
“A company’s website is almost always the first point of entry for potential customers to become aware of what it’s selling, the product it makes, the services it provides,” explained Dave Smith, director of client services at Avocet. “By teaching the basics and giving startups a strong foundation, we are setting them up for success and helping them grow their businesses.”
The mission of EforAll is to accelerate economic and social impact in the communities it serves through inclusive entrepreneurship. Longmont is the site of EforAll’s first program outside of Massachusetts. EforAll’s innovative programs serve the diverse and untapped entrepreneurial community in Longmont.
