Char Polanosky is not the boastful sort. She quietly goes about her business, a successful web design, blogging and new media consulting practice. So unless you’ve followed Char for a while, you’d never know that some of the most well-known business bloggers and new media personalities consider Char a top resource and go-to gal.
People like influential business blogger Liz Strauss (also a Mediation Business Summit speaker, I hasten to add). Social media authority and successful web entrepreneur Wendy Piersall. Edinburgh-based identity designer and author David Airey (who I was lucky enough to get to design my logo).
So we’re extraordinarily lucky to have Char in the lineup of Mediation Business Summit speakers. Char, who’s the first name I give anyone who wants expert help with their website, will be talking about Website Essentials:
What elements make a truly effective small business website? How do you find a trustworthy and talented web professional and what price range should you expect to pay? What’s the difference between a web designer and web developer? How much of it can and should you do yourself? Should you have a “static” website and a blog, existing separately? Should you ever pay someone to do search engine optimization for you and what the heck is “blackhat” anyway?
Char Polanosky is a a web designer and web/social media strategy consultant. Merging her background in technical writing, teaching design and technology, and her experience building websites for a wide range of small and large businesses, Char guides clients in the strategic use of online platforms to promote their businesses and in communicating effectively with their markets.
In this session, Char will address the above questions and more, taking the unknown out of building or rebuilding a vibrant, effective online hub for your ADR marketing activities.
