I liked how intimate the class was, it removed any hesitation, making it easy to ask questions. I feel like it was a great value for the money. The workshop has given me the confidence I need to try updating our company website instead of just wandering around aimlessly. I highly recommend this workshop, it wasn’t too long and the staff was awesome! – Liz Thomas of ETS Solutions
