BBC Friday 31 May 2019 – “Your Business Website” Roundtable Discussion, w/ Abell Smith

Join us this cheery spring BBC Friday for a roundtable discussion on business websites, with new BBC Regular Abell Smith (Abell Smith Design). Your Business Website: what’s a good website for your business, what’s not, what you need, what you may not need.

Local web developer Abell Smith will lead us in an exploration of all things “business websites” — be it a corporate site (lawyer, real estate), a service website (physical therapist, house painter, wordsmith), or an eCommerce site (selling cool stuff online). Bring your thoughts, questions, or current website problem!  Abell contact info:

Abell Smith is a web developer, project manager, and graphic designer. He builds, redesigns, fixes, and maintains websites (mainly WordPress), and specializes in finding business solutions for small companies and nonprofits. Recent work: the Washington State Golf Association, and the WA representative of the USGA. Abell and his wife recently moved back to Western Washington where they both have strong family roots.
