Join a panel of local website designers to learn about the options for an affordable, manageable website for your business, whatever your size and capacity. We’ll layout your options for an online presence, from a free Facebook page to a website hosted and managed by local web professionals – and everything in between. We’ll cover the basics you need to know, breakdown the advantages and disadvantages of various arrangements, and get expert advice for an effective site. There will be plenty of time for questions.
Panel presenters include Caroline Alexander and Glenn Geiger.
Caroline Alexander, Alexander Design Works
As a web developer, my job is to tell a story. I work with clients towards a brand identity – a website they feel reflects the essence of who they are. My background is in public broadcasting, working for PBS and NPR stations. After moving to the Berkshires in 2005, I realized the capacity for new technologies to document stories of farmers and chefs, so I published Berkshire Food and Travel, an online magazine. That process introduced me to web design, which I now do for clients across the country.
