Does the thought of updating your website give you anxiety? Maybe you think you’re going to break something because you “don’t know code.” Maybe you always put it off because even small changes take so much time. Maybe, no matter what you do, it never actually works right, so it sits there tormenting you with its problems. Because it’s a burden, it goes unmaintained and slowly starts to fall apart, and then you don't know how to start fixing it. The reality is that when you have the right tools, there’s nothing to be afraid of. Managing a website can not only be very easy, but also very fun when you have the confidence to keep things up to date. And we’ll prove it by building a website on the spot during this workshop. Join Bold Bison for this engaging, skills-based workshop where we’ll unpack some of the common challenges land trusts face in maintaining their websites. We will learn how to evaluate your website not only for the quality of its content, but also for the tools you need to run it. We’ll learn about some of the many tools that exist to make your life easier because they’re designed for non-technical web managers. Finally, we’ll spend time reviewing the pros and cons of building a new website and how to get the process started.
