MN small business’s sales increase over $100,000 after website

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to visit with an attendee for a Project FINE class; through the class he created a pretty simple (but effective) website. After the site was up, his sales improved from $304,000 to $438,000 (in 6 months). The attendee owns in a Cenex in Rollingstone Minnesota.

 

He had been difficulty with the website before we visited. He and I visited after the class and it’s up and running again. You can visit him: Cenex Mini Mart!

I have talked about Project FINE in the past; they do a range of digital literacy classes in a range of languages.
