Week #5 - Communication - Laura Bowen
After looking through the Communication module, I found the section on effective business websites very useful. Even though I couldn’t get the technology part of it to work, I thought the resources were very helpful. It was much easier to go to Wordpress.com and work from there instead of following the tutorial on HP. I think this would be a excellent class activity - having students set up a web-site for a fictitious business.
In my FSSE class we have an assignment about email etiquette so I really appreciated the section on business emails. I know that I assume everyone should know how to write a professional email. But, I’m sure that my fellow bootcampers and instructors are well aware this is not the case for many students. I am continually surprised by emails I receive from students. So, for young entrepreneurs, I think this section would be an essential lesson in professionalism!The section on target audience was weak. It discussed how to build a survey to determine your target audience but it didn’t elaborate on what to do with the information once you got it or the best ways to reach your audience. I might be expecting too much from these tutorials, but it seems like they would give you some resources so you could continue with your goal to reach your target audience?
