These workshops are fantastic for all business owners. You can contact SCORE if your not a veteran and they will be able to accommodate you with another workshop schedule. The use of spreadsheets is a must for all businesses. Using word documents is also indispensable. Using presentations are important for marketing your product. Creating and maintaining databases for your business is critical for customer service, sales and accounting. Their social networking program is excellent, and their pay per click advertising workshop will save you real dollars in advertising online. I know of a few companies that have incorporated the eBooks strategies into their business and they are glad they did. I would recommend this series of workshops for anyone on Staten Island that is contemplating a new business or needs to ramp up an existing one and wants some technical help on the basics of accounting, office software and internet marketing..

You can register for their workshops here. or call SCORE at 718-727-1221.

Successful Websites

What makes websites work? Ease of use, A well planned layout accompanied by a visually pleasing site are all important factors in today's hurried media laden world. "Get out of flash and into WordPress" is being shouted by the "in the know" web designers. Please listen to that chant. There is a reason for it. The ultimate combination is a custom front ended website with a WordPress back end. I came across this video which reviews a few custom sites and gives them a sink or swim review. See what makes for a good website and what makes for a website that fails. If you need to speak with someone, we are here. 212-904-0020 or Contact Us.
