B2B Web Workshop – 18th June

Writing about web page http://www.nb2bc.co.uk

Gareth Edwards, eMarketing specialist and Steve Orriss, lead e-business consultant led yesterdays Web Workshop.

Delegates enjoyed the first session, website reviewing.  In turn each delegate if they wish to agrees to put there website on our interactive screen for all to see.  Delegates provide feedback on the general look and feel of the site and our consultants provide an indepth review of the content, keywords, how well it's ranked and things to consider.  This benefits the owner as it provides constructive feedback from a usability point of view from both parties and also provides an seo perspective.

One of the hot topics in the world of Web 2.0 and the B2B Centre's workshops is using social media sites.   Social media sites allow your business to be more visable to search engines and web users.  In our workshop we provide information and talk about the potentail opportunities out there to start collaborating, some of the benefits include sharing ideas/ knowledge about your expertise, posting questions, making new contacts, finding new customers. 

Our consultants provide an overview of the most common sites used by businesses and provides information into which sites would be most effective for your business.

    This was an excellent workshop – thanks Gareth and Steve. I wasn’t sure what to expect as I run my own IT consultancy that specialises in web design and SEO – I felt that the workshop was pitched just right. It covered a lot of ground and was very interactive – Feedback from other members during the session has allowed me to make a number of improvements to my own website. Thanks again.

    An excellent and comprehensive workshop from Gareth and Steve – thanks guys. Particularly interesting was the open forum critique of selected websites – always good to get real world feedback as often we can get too close to our own project and not see (or conveniently ignore) some important issues! And I’ll nearly always spot a typo someone has missed – occupational hazard. My own site at www.wearingthehat.biz was not exposed on the day…so I would welcome comments and observations from the group.

    This was a really enjoyable day that had something for everyone at every level of web experience. Since attending the course I have developed a site to sell my new e-book which is a self help, complete mind and body plan aimed at anyone who is tired more than 20% of the time. Check it out at www.fit4workfit4life.com I would be really keen to have any feedback on the site and the content.
