Website Training Videos

nine10 training videos

For your convenience, we’ve created several playlists that cover our basic website training, plus a little extra.

Having these easy training videos available allows you to:

  • Refresh your memory from previous nine10 training meetings with videos that range from 20 seconds to 5 minutes.
  • Develop your skill level from beginner to knowledgeable with videos that cover content not necessarily covered in nine10 training meetings.
  • Share website training within your company with a simple link to this page.
  • Watch YouTube videos on company time (just kidding).

The playlists below cover all basic areas of managing your website, though if you can’t seem to find what you’re looking for below, know that you’re always welcome to give us a call.

Note: Headings

Headings work like a newspaper. Heading 1 is like the title of the newspaper, and Heading 2 is like a front page story heading — one step down from the title. Heading 3 is a little bit smaller, and is like the smaller news titles. As you can see, headings are a way of organizing information. Use headings to sort your information and make it easy for viewers to find.

Note: Custom Link in Menu

Generally, when people visit a website they expect the menu to direct them throughout the website, and not to an external page or PDF document. The last thing you want to do is confuse a potential customer. Only use this feature if it will add value to your company — for example, a link in your menu to a “Log In” page on another website you run, where customers can order your services. If this would be helpful to customers, and even expected of your business, then it would be a good idea.
