The Web & You - Making Technology Pay



If you intended to attend this session, we apologize but we are overbooked; but, feel free to register for the next session.



Are you a small business owners who is wasting time and money on Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin, Constant Contact, iContact and other web tools.

Sure, having an arsenal of tech tools is fine....if you really need them AND know how to use them.  However, it you don't know how to use them, you could waste months, lose clients and completely miss your financial targets.

Technology is supposed to make your life easier.  Spending half your work day updating your Facebook status, then your blog, then your twitter account, sending eNewsletters, etc. does NOT make your life easier.

  • Who cares if a social media whatchamacallit is cool, if it does not bring results?
  • Do your online processes streamline your offline processes?
  • And, how do you know which tools are the best and how to make them work for your business?

This workshop is for business people who understand that time is money.  During this workshop, we will identify which tools will bring you the fastest results; outline and implement your personal internet strategy based on your business process; and, show you how to save time, money and attract clients.

The hands-on no nonsense 5GRTech Approach to New Media programme is tailored for the business person who does not have time to waste.  If you need help connecting the new media dots, this step-by-step program is for you.  We will unravel the web in a clear, easy to understand format.
