This is an idea we got from another Joomladay. Basicaially we have no set agenda for this workshop. We will start by brainstorming topics and find out what you are really interested in, then we will do our best to answer your questions and demonstrate where possible. This is your opportunity to get any questions answered, or clarify anything you've learnt at this event.

If we don't get enough topic suggestions, this may turn into a panel discussion.

More and more businesses get online for sake of being online. Their digital presence is too clattered with no sense of direction or consistency. The challenge for any business is connecting with their ideal market.

It is vital for us all to understand why we are online as a business. In this workshop Hardy will be covering a number of areas for you to consider as well as some techniques and tools he has found to be quite useful.
