Event Summary:
In today's world, it is imperative for small businesses to have a website strategy to effectively market their products and services overseas. According to Forrester Research, 50% of Internet traffic in the United States originates overseas. If you look at your website traffic statistics, your website may be drafting even higher numbers. If not, why not? Can you afford to ignore 50% or more of your “walk-in” traffic? This is a NON-TECHNICAL seminar for management and staff to learn about the low-cost to no-cost modifications to internationalize your website. STEP will cover registration fees for all small and medium-sized firms as defined by SBA guidelines. Participants should see MDA and MS USEAC staff at the event to learn how to qualify. Non-qualified firms will be charged a registration fee of $50 (inclides continental breakfast, lunch and materials.)
