“What Makes a Good Website” is the topic for an upcoming seminar at Black Hills State University Wednesday, Jan. 25 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the Donald E. Young Center, room 206.

The SD Center for Enterprise Opportunity has partnered with TDG Communications, a Deadwood-based advertising agency, to bring this seminar to BHSU. 

The seminar will provide local entrepreneurs and business leaders with marketing tools they can directly apply to their current or future business plans. “What Makes a Good Website” will cover what functionality and design types help compose an effective user-friendly website. The seminar targets small to mid-sized businesses looking to add an online component to their sales arsenal or who are simply curious about the types of sites other businesses are developing and why. 

Dustin Floyd, president and agency director of TDG Communications, and Molly McMahan, one of TDG’s prime strategists, will present this marketing seminar. Floyd, who holds a bachelor’s degree in English and public relations, has helped create partnerships between local clients and media organizations like GAC and the United Kingdom’s Sky One network. McMahan holds an MBA in economics and corporate strategy. She recently contributed to the marketing efforts during the opening of the multi-million-dollar hotel, The Deadwood Mountain Grand Event Center and Casino.

Cost of the seminar is $40 per person. The registration deadline is Jan. 24. Space is limited. To register or learn more visit www.BHSU.edu/SDCEO or call Brittni Skipper, program assistant at 605-642-6435.
