Want to develop great websites but don’t know where to start? Let us help.

Digital communications are vitally important to the success of any business. This includes every aspect of your digital business profile from social media to your website. Any time a client, customer or key stakeholder wants to find you – they go to the web. And that search is what tells them everything they need to know about who you are, how you do business, how to contact you and much more.

Contrary to popular belief, building a successful website doesn’t need to be complicated or expensive. It is about good design, creative content and ensuring that your SEO makes it easy for you to be discovered online. Learning these three skills can make you a desirable candidate for an inhouse marketing or design/developer role and for small business owners and managers it can be a valuable tool that will save you money and time.

To learn these skills, eCampus NZ has launched three exciting new short courses for wannabe web developers. They are:
