Easy Way recognises that many small businesses feel the need to have a website but find it hard to commit large amounts of money to hiring a web master for the creation and management of a website.
If you are running an online store, with new stock being added and old stock being taken out then add the numerous other management functions, and the cost soon mount up. The next thing you know you are spending several thousands of pounds each year.
What if there was another way? What if you could hire a professional web designer to teach you how to run a website? Now, you can.
If you have a website built in or want to build a website in WordPress, you can now hire a webmaster to teach you how to build and run your own site.
You will need a PC or Laptop, a domain name (we can provide a sub-domain for you) and some web hosting.
The training session are delivered in the following;
