Using Web as business tool topic of workshop
PEQUOT LAKES -- Learn how a business can use the World Wide Web to increase productivity and profits by attending a seminar from 6 to 9 p.m. May 16-17 and 23-24 in the Pequot Lakes School computer lab.
This is not a course on how to build a Web site but how to use it as an effective business tool. This would also be an excellent workshop for those who are interested in starting a new business on the Web.
The workshop will be presented by the University of Minnesota Extension Service and I Like It Like That, an area Web site development company.
Because of a grant from the Initiative Foundation, the support of the Pequot Lakes Area Development Organization and the Pequot Lakes School, the fee will be only $65 per person. To register call Pequot Lakes Community Education at 568-9200.
