TechTamers Offers Teleseminars

TechTamers, an Austin-based consulting and training firm, is offering a series of web-enhanced teleseminars on designing and promoting your website. Aimed at small businesses, the web-enhanced teleseminars provide everything a business owner needs to know to get online and start the flow of visitors to their site.

"Teleseminars are one of the most effective training techniques available today, " says Dr. Jeanette Cates, CEO of TechTamers. "And by providing the website for participants before and after the seminar, they are able to see the information as well as hear it."

When participants register for a teleseminar they are sent the URL of the associated website and the telephone number to call for the seminar. At the appointed time all participants and the instructor call the designated telephone number. Everyone on the line can hear everyone else. To keep extra noise and chatter to a minimum, TechTamers provides a list of Teletips for participants.

"We've found it is so much more effective if users can see the information, as well as hear it. By using the website before the seminar, they generate questions that are important to them individually. By using it after the seminar they continue to reinforce and expand their learning. We update the teleseminar sites as new information becomes available, " Cates continued.

Details on the TechTamers Teleseminars are available at and toll-free at 1-877-522-8371.
