7 Step-by-Step Guide to Monthly Website Updates

For small businesses and nonprofits though, this can be a real challenge. As small business owners, we wear a lot of hats and marketing often ends up on a back burner. To remedy this, consider scheduling in a 7 step monthly update. Here's a step-by-step guide to doing your first one and setting it up as an easy task each month.
Freshly updated - Complete Workshop DIY Kit
I've just completed a big update to my Complete Workshop DIY Kit! I dialed in the templates, added info to the Tips & Tricks sheet and updated the Set Up Checklist. Workshops are a great way to deliver valuable information, create community with clients, cultivate sales & referrals, generate social media buzz and more! But putting a workshop together is a lot of work from creating your presentation, to flyers, handouts, sign-in sheets and door signs, etc. Why struggle to make quality, matching versions of all of it from scratch? My freshly-updated kit includes field-tested materials I've developed as a professional graphic artist and used in promoting and running my own client workshops for several years.
