Bargain Hunter's Guide to Building Your Course Web Site

In this posting, I'm still on hiatus from the Running a Good Business series. This ebook, though, is likely to be integrated into that series when I get to the Book 17: Using Technology. This ebook is available on Smashwords for $5.00 and, for a limited time, a coupon for 100% discount is available at http://www.meaningfulwork.com/running-a-good-business/. Check it out.

Everything you need for building a terrific course Web site is available free or for a few dollars on the Internet. This ebook provides product reviews, links to software and tools and more. The Bargain Hunter's Guide will get your course off the ground right away. It will expand your horizons. It will lead you to options you might never have known existed.

We created The Bargain Hunter's Guide to Building Your Course Web Site as an alternative (maybe short term, maybe longer) -- or as a supplement -- to the uptown learning management software packages so popular today.

- Do you have an independent streak, an eye for a bargain, and a yen to add an online component to your current courses?
- Do you want your course Web site up and running right away?
- Are you tired of waiting for your organization to settle on a plan?
- Are you less than satisfied with your organization's software choices?
- Do you like some features of the chosen software but not others?
- Would you rather spend your training time on solid, transferable skills than on the peculiarities of some software that may disappear next year?
- Do you perhaps represent an organization that's ready to "test the waters" before committing to a full-scale software investment?

The Bargain Hunter's Guide will get your course off the ground right away. It will expand your horizons. It will lead you to options you might never have known existed.
