Free Digital Workshops to Boost Sleaford Business

A series of masterclasses from onlincolnshire will help Sleaford businesses make the most of the internet.

The events, which are being held at the town’s New Life Conference Centre, are the perfect opportunity for businesses from the area to learn more about the benefits of social media and digital marketing and sales.

Kicking off the series are two half-day events, Pinterest & Instagram for Business and Email Marketing, both being held on 24th March. This will be followed by two seminars on 21st April on Twitter and Instagram for Business, being held in morning and afternoon slots. Finishing the calendar of events will be a Selling over the Internet masterclass on 28th April, for businesses looking to start or improve online sales.

All of the events are free of charge and open to all eligible businesses, but places are limited so booking is essential.

"We live in a technology-driven world and businesses need to keep up with the latest advances in order to survive,” said Bryn Davies, Principal Development at Lincolnshire County Council.

"These masterclasses will offer businesses in Lincolnshire access to free training delivered by people who are experts in their field. They are ideal for those who want to get up to speed with the digital world and learn vital new skills. The council is keen to support local firms in this endeavour, helping them to compete on a national and international level.

"The classes will also provide practical, jargon-free advice and will equip delegates with the knowhow they need to put their business on the online map.”

Part-funded by the East Midlands European Regional Development Fund, the courses –which are also being run in Louth, Gainsborough, Spalding and Lincoln – are part of a wider programme of support across Lincolnshire and Rutland being run by onlincolnshire.
