One of the main hurdles to starting any business these days is a website and the whole process of going online. We all know it has to happen but it can be long and onerous and expensive if you don’t have the time or expertise to do it yourself.

It can also be daunting if you have no experience with digital marketing and a brand new idea where there are no examples to follow.

Welcome to the show Suzanne.

Topics we’ll be covering:

  • The website landscape is evolving, what has GoDaddy noticed about the changing patterns of behaviour in small business in Australia over the last 5 years?
    • Are entrepreneurs still “buying up” multiple domains as a form of protecting their name and IP or are they using other marketing tools to own their name?
    • In your opinion are small businesses better at positioning themselves online as the experts, or do we still have more to learn from corporates?
  • What are your top tips to improve the functionality of a small business website and accessing your ideal clients?

  • Tell us about the recent white paper which explored the entrepreneurial spirit of Aussie workers & what does this mean for small businesses?
    • One third of workers were interested in setting up their own businesses

    • What can we do to support our employees’ who are dissatisfied?
