Writing Your "About You" Page (webinar)
By Community Futures Central Kootenay

Despite our experience as web surfers, creating our own business content can be tricky. One of the most visited page for new clients is your 'About' story. But, these pages often don’t keep clients interested. Interestingly, our ‘About’ page is not really about us. Learn how to create a page that connects and entertains. In this workshop you’ll find out how to create an interesting story your clients will like, link to and learn from. We’ll cover writing tips for this page, key components of good storytelling and how to focus on your clients’ needs first. You’ll leave with a new draft ‘About’ page to update your site. This class will be held via zoom, you will need a phone, tablet or computer with decent wifi to attend. 
Registration Deadline: Mar 5
Instructor: Kate Harrison Whiteside
