Welcome to Sites and Writes by Sandy Penny

Hi, I'm Sandy Penny. I've been teaching all kinds of classes since the 1970s. I began teaching friends to use the web in the mid-1990s as it became popular. In 2010, I made a commitment to help small heart-centered businesses get on the web for free or very affordably. I taught classes in planning, designing, writing, launching, maintaining and marketing small business sites. I use Yola.com for the sitebuilder tools, hosting and domain names. I find it easy to use, dependable and affordable (even free if you don't mind a subdomain of .yolasite.com). Together, my clients and I launched 20 new business sites last year. Have a look ... click. The 2010-2011 classes were in person in New Mexico, and now I'm teaching online so the whole world has a chance to work with me ... contact me. 

First, let me say, I am NOT a techie. I'm just like you, learning something new every day about the web.

I'm a writer who loves to write, and I love free and easy tools that let me share and market my writing. I do have years of experience creating web pages in the corporate world and the tech skills that come with content creation and maintenance on the web.

Isn't it time to get paid for what YOU love to do?

I'm here to make it easy for you.

The internet economy is growing every day while almost all other economies are not. As a proponent of communities helping each other, I'm trying to help those who are even less technical than I am build their own websites at a very low price so they can get their ideas out of their heads and into the world marketplace.

I also want to help free people from having to pay for site updates. The more autonomous you are with your online website, business, or blogs, the easier it is to respond to changes in the economy, in your business model, and what you are evolving and presenting about yourself.

There is nothing I can teach you that you can't find on the web, but I've spent four years studying and working with Yola sites and have learned tips, tricks and workarounds for most of the issues you'll come across.

Having spent 20 years as a graphic designer and 20 years as a corporate marketing writer, I can also help you make decisions about your layout, your content, navigation and writing for search engines. As an entrepreneur who has launched seven businesses of my own throughout the years, I can see things from your point of view and help you get your message across in a style compatible with your goals.
