Free Workshops on Getting your Business Online without Breaking the Bank


If your business needs a website or if you’d like to improve the performance of an existing site, Webafrica is hosting eight free digital marketing workshops in Cape Town & Johannesburg in August and September 2015 on “How to take your business online cost effectively”. A lucky participant at each workshop will win a one-year website package worth R499 a month.

“Having an effective website is an indispensable tool for small businesses, but only if it enjoys plenty of relevant traffic. Our workshops also focus on how to make that happen,” explains Webafrica CEO Tim Wyatt-Gunning. “We have arranged two time slots on the same day for both the August and September workshops to accommodate different peoples’ schedules.”

  • What it is that makes a website work.

“Webafrica’s online marketing experts will also be doing a free review of participants’ websites. Plus attendees stand the chance to win a one-year website package in a lucky draw,” says Wyatt-Gunning.

The prize includes secure hosting, a domain name, professional web design and copywriting, mobile optimisation, unlimited email accounts, free monthly changes and a monthly report on how your website is performing. This Webafrica package is worth R499 a month.
