Lunch and Learn Series coming to North Port

The Florida SBDC at University of South Florida Sarasota Manatee in partnership with the City of North Port and the North Port Area Chamber of Commerce, will host a series of free monthly Small Business Lunch and Learn workshops starting this spring. 

The first workshop, “How to Design and Maintain a Web Site That Works,” will be held 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., Wednesday, March 12, at the University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee in North Port, 5920 Pan American Blvd., North Port.

Your website could be the first contact a prospective customer has with your business. Everything from the domain name, the landing page and the information provided tells the customer who you are. You have three to seven seconds to create a good first impression. Learn how to develop a website that makes customers want to do business with you and want to come back to your website.

Lunch will be provided at no cost by the program’s sponsors, Presto Air and The Olde World Restaurant. Workshops are designed to show business owners how to improve their businesses and stay competitive. The next workshop in the series “Good Customer Service Brings Repeat Sales,” will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on April 9.
