Web Site Optimization

Kevin White, Consultant, ASBTDC

Making the most of an existing Web site, or developing a new one, may be an effective way to deliver your goods and/or services at lower costs. However, just having an attractive Web site does no good if it doesn't rank well with search engines. Find out some things you can do to make sure your customers and prospects can find your website and how you can turn it into a real working asset.

10:30-11:15 a.m.

Growing Your Business in Tough Times

Tim Lee, Consultant, ASBTDC

While small businesses are having a harder time controlling things like getting financing, declining sales, increased costs and changes in consumer spending habits, there are still things they can control. Attend this seminar to learn about options you might not have considered, things you can cut and, just as important, what not to cut.

1:30-2:15 p.m.

How to Talk to Your Lender To Get to ‘Yes' Faster

Panel Discussion

We all hear and read about the tightening of credit by banks and other lenders. While the volume and dollars of loans are down, the requests for them are not. Learn how to give your lender the clear-cut proposal they need to say "yes." This session will be a panel discussion of lenders as well as a small business owner. You can direct this workshop with your questions.

2:30-3:15 p.m.
