How can businesses best get traffic and business on the Internet? By learning top website promotion strategies.

This intense six-week course will show how small business can successfully harness the Internet.

You'll learn how to develop a web strategy for your business or for your clients. Ideally this planning is done prior to launching a website. However, if you already have a website that is not performing well, this course provides fresh concepts for online promotion success.
