She'll share her thoughts on best practices and other ways to communicate what you offer to the public through your website.
We'll cover:
  • The importance of visuals
  • How to set yourself apart 
  • Content planning
  • Design
  • Important elements unique to restaurants
  • Working with a developer

You may be prompted to use the Zoom app to join the meeting - it's a pretty simple one-click set up, but if you don't want to do that, try another browser (in theory you should have the option to join without an app)

If you have problems signing on during the webinar, check the Zoom help desk  or e-mail - we will monitor that account for questions (it's hard to answer the phone while you're hosting a webinar)

You can find recordings and notes from our past webinars in the "Webinar Resources" category of this blog. These webinars are free for everyone, but we sure don't mind if folks become VFN Members to help support this and other programming designed to strengthen our local food businesses.
