CREATE YOUR OWN WEBSITE AND ENJOY THE PROCESS
Martin Demarest
, local consultant and e-mail marketing expert  

Don't put off creating your internet presence. Put yourself on the web and connect to the world!
In the first session, Marty Demarest will conduct a workshop about Wix.com, a free, easy to use web service where you can design your own website in an afternoon.  
Marty has a three step approach. The first is empowerment. His goal is that any fear you might have about creating your own website be removed by showing you what you can accomplish in an afternoon.  He will provide an overview of Wix and a step by step process so that every participant will have the tools and understanding to be able to create a complete website. Information about an easy to use graphic editing resource will be included, as creating and editing graphics is an essential part of the web creation process.  
Each participant will receive a printed Website Design Cookbook, and a link to an online resource guide. Marty’s “Cookbook” is a workbook where you can fill in your goals, choices of domain name, samples of web pages, web content ideas, and graphic ideas.  It will include step by step instructions as to how to choose a template with a list of likely choices, create pages, create a menu, link to their email, find graphics, edit and save graphics, add graphics to pages, and save and publish their web site.
The second session will be a clinic to address issues, problems and questions participants develop in their website creation, and give participants a preview of some of the many advanced features offered by Wix.
Marty will offer a low cost chat/phone support service to participants who may have questions or challenges as they implement their Wix websites.  

FEE:  $58, or $48 for CAP 2016 donors.
