Description

WIX WEBSITE WORKSHOP

Having an online presence is of huge importance in today’s digital society, however, it can be an expensive and overwhelming experience for some.

Learn from two local women who have had experience creating over 20 WIX websites between them for a variety of local and regional businesses, including their own. The workshop size will be strictly limited to allow for an intimate and interactive session that can assist each participant where necessary. Our low fuss jargon-free approach has been a favourite with our clients and is sure to work well in this environment.
