Getting Your Message Online

We’ve all been there – whether it’s the blank piece of paper or the blank computer screen. We have the tools, some skills in using them, but where do you start? What do you write? What do you draw?

This is why sharing on social media is so popular, you just click a “share” button. Anyone can do that.

It’s the content and message of websites, and their value to you and your reader, that matters most. The technology and code are just the tools.

In these online courses I’ve boiled down many years of experience designing websites to provide you with the tools and guidance you need to create or manage your own website and online communication.

These are not the usual technical courses. There are lots of courses around about using WordPress and other systems to create websites, but having those technical skills can still leave you wondering where to start. 

These courses are to help you gain control of your project and make the best use of technology with the people in your organisation. They are tailor-made to fit your circumstances and include the opportunity to interact and ask questions. 

All course include the option of a members discussion forum so you can also share experiences and ideas, and learn from each other.
