If you live in Texas and you’re interested in helping your organization reach the right audiences more effectively for less money, you’re in luck! FFW is offering two free trainings later this month in both Dallas and Houston.

When you attend either Drupal training, you’ll learn how Drupal can:

  • Increase conversion and revenue by targeting custom content to specific marketing segments.
  • Improve IT and marketing efficiency by allowing you to create, deploy and manage multiple websites through one common code base.
  • Build and deploy better global multilingual and localized websites for your audience.
  • Eliminate software licensing costs.
