You provided me with awesome tips - simple and easily recorded - to use on my website and my family's business website.

This was very helpful for non-techie business owners to understand what their IT and marketing support team should be looking at and doing with the company website.

Based on the great information I have taken from other equaTEK seminars, I jumped at the opportunity to take this course. They have an awesome presenter who will help you tweak your website to your individual business' needs and goals.
