This Spring and Summer, I’ll be leading a series of workshops and classes at 3rd Ward. Topics will focus on ecommerce, online marketing, social media, online communications, building an online audience, and finally – a 3-part wordpress workshop.
The classes were initially designed to be taken together, but are now flexible enough to be taken as individual components. Below is a description of all the courses.
