Don’t Let Your Business Get Left Behind!

Don’t Let Your Business Get Left Behind!

Businesses in Market Deeping are being invited to a series of free workshops and masterclasses to help them get up to speed with their competitors in the rest of the UK.

The internet offers a wealth of opportunities to companies but many are still not making the most of it and are struggling to stay up to date with the latest advances in technology.

Lincolnshire County Council’s onlincolnshire project will host a number of half-day and full-day sessions throughout September at Eventus.

Novices can take advantage of an Introduction to Social Media course on 11th September while more advanced users can sign up for social media surgeries in Twitter on 11th September or Linkedin and Facebook on 12th September. 

There will also be a full-day masterclass on 16th September between 9.30am and 4.30pm looking at all aspects of internet marketing from Search Engine Optimisation, to podcasts, blogging and direct email.

Cllr Colin Davie, Executive Member for Economic Development at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “With the digital age upon us, it’s never been more important for businesses to keep up with the online world – and that’s why onlincolnshire is providing this business support to help firms make the most of the internet.

“We don’t use any techy jargon, so you don’t need to be an expert in IT to attend. It’s a way for businesses to pick up some tips and get free advice from experts in their field. We’d like to see as many businesses as possible take up this opportunity.”

As well as learning more about the internet delegates will also be able to benefit from up to 12 hours of fully funded support which includes one-to-one business advice and consultancy.

The courses are open to all businesses in the area and are part of a wider project of support across Lincolnshire and Rutland being run by onlincolnshire. It is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
