An experienced entrepreneur, Gary established NSDesign in 1999 at the peak of the “internet boom”. Today the company continues to provide creative digital services to over 10,000 businesses worldwide. Three times short-listed for “Creative Entrepreneur of the Year”, a member of the Industrial Advisory Board for the University of the West of Scotland, and last year named by Insider Magazine as one of Scotland's “Rising Stars”, Gary's main ambition is to prove to the sceptics that “Geeks” can be cool too!
First session (the 1st 60 mins) - Websites that work – getting real results online
Just having a website on the internet is no guarantee of online success. Having the “right” website, which is planned, designed, developed and managed to match your business objectives will set you apart from your competition, and help deliver real measurable results. This short workshop will cover:
- The importance of planning and setting objectives
- Choosing a suitable domain name
- The “technical issues” such as SEO and Accessibility
- Understanding the importance of design – good AND bad!
- The role of the professional
- After “go-live”. tips to keep delivering success
Based on the attendees digital needs and requirements, a further 2 sessions will be tailored specifically. (and agreed at the end of the 1st session – examples; social media / blogging / use of email / video etc….)
