Your Virtual Storefront

November 18 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am

If your business needed to close its doors again tomorrow due to COVID and move entirely online, think of your website as your virtual storefront. What do you have up that is going to attract visitors to look further inside? If someone has been past your site on their ‘virtual commute’ 1000 times before, what do you have up that is new that will lure them in? This session will explore the importance of creating content that is continually fresh, that is engaging, and that is designed to keep readers interested so that your business is top of mind.

Attendees will learn how to re-evaluate their content offerings by putting themselves in their client’s shoes, and reimagine their digital presence as though they were an outsider looking in on their website. We will also explore the importance of fresh content, plain language, and why the call to action is always a crucial closer.
