Did you know that almost 50 per cent of customers will stop considering a business if it doesn’t have a website?

Despite this, many small businesses don’t want a website of their own, according to the 2018 Telstra Small Business Intelligence Report, while 60 per cent of those who want to set up a website say they don’t have time to launch one.

This Tech Talk™ explores the role a website can play in helping a business to grow, without becoming a drain on the business’ time.

Our host Kate Mills sits down with Jae Hawkins, General Manager of the Wollongong Hellenic Club, to talk about her experience of building a website and how it is attracting a whole new audience for the club. While Marc Tan, Telstra’s General Manager, Business Applications and Systems, also joins the panel to discuss how having an up-to-date website can give boost a small business’ credibility.

Be inspired and informed by our Tech Talk™.
