CCCCD Offers Website Class For Small Businesses

November 24, 2003 - This spring, Collin County Community College is offering a new class to help small business owners improve their online sales. The class is called "Developing an Effective Small Business Web Site," and it will be held from 6 - 9 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays beginning on Jan. 26, 2004. This class requires 18 hours of coursework, and will take place at CCCCD's Courtyard Center for Professional and Economic Development, 4800 Preston Park Blvd., in Plano. This class is part of the "Small Business Success Series," which offers eight different classes for budding entrepreneurs.

This course is designed for anyone who is creating a new website or refreshing an old one. It sets goals, defines success, and tackles usability, navigation and search-engine optimization. No prerequisites are required. The class will repeat in May.

"This is a great course to help small business owners design dynamic websites to increase profits, make an impression and add value to their growing business," said Jim Merritt, continuing education program director. "It will give the student a clear understanding of designs that work and identify some of the common mistakes that a lot of people make in setting up a website on their own."

Collin County Community College District serves close to 40,000 credit and continuing education students annually and offers more than 100 degree and certificate programs in a wide range of disciplines. In addition, the CCCCD is a partner to business, government and industry, providing customized training and work force development.
