GROW with DIGITAL

GROW with DIGITAL was a comprehensive programme of digital training sessions run earlier in the year to help local businesses to grow. The programme was a great success with around 300 bookings for the 30 sessions.

Running a business can be enough of a challenge without having to constantly keep up to date with changes in technology.  Given the option, most business owners would like to spend more time on digital marketing, internet security and improving efficiency, output, sales and profits by streaming processes, however with only 24 hours in the day and cash flow and customers to manage, it's easy to let these tasks repeatedly slip to the bottom of the to-do list.  

Enterprise Mendip - a partnership between Mendip District Council and Mendip's Chambers of Commerce - ran an extensive programme of digital training with participating local Chamber's of Commerce to give local businesses the knowledge, skills, professional advice and practical plans to grow by improving the digital performance.   

The next part of the programme is currently being co-ordinated and will be updated here, through our newsletter ( sign up here) and via Twitter when finalised.
