High quality websites focus on their visitor’s needs. Good, fresh content builds the visitor’s interest and invites them to get involved, invite their friends, and come back for more.

Websites continue to be one of the best methods for attracting members to your club. But there are some factors that must be considered in order to create interest and excitement about your website.

In this interactive session we will explore:

  • Is your website attracting visitors or chasing them away?
  • Is it attracting the right visitors?
  • Are you capturing visitor information for a follow up?

The presenter is Phyllis Harmon, DTM, Editor Voices!
