Small Angus businesses are being urged to take advantage of a series of digital workshops organised by Business Gateway Angus.

Andrew Burnett, Operations Director, Business Gateway Angus said: “The digital world is having a greater impact on how everyone does business and has the scope to open up new opportunities. The DigitalBoost workshop programme can give business owners a better understanding of how digital technology can have a positive effect on their business. I’d encourage business owners in Angus to speak to us about the workshops and specialist one to one support we provide.”

The DigitalBoost workshops have been designed to help small to medium sized businesses improve their digital presence, understand and communicate with their customers better, improve systems processes and research and ultimately increase sales.

The fully funded events will run throughout April and May covering data analytic, digital marketing strategies and how to digitise your business processes.

The free half day workshops taking place at Angus Centre for Enterprise, Room 1, Esk Building, Keptie Road, Arbroath includes:

· Digitise your Business Processes – Wednesday, April 27, from 1.30pm to 4.30pm.

· Digital Marketing Strategy – Thursday, May 12, from 9.30am to 12.30pm.

· Data Analytics – Thursday, May 19, from 9.30am to 12.30pm.

As well as the local workshop programme, one to one adviser sessions with digital specialists are also available to eligible businesses that would benefit from extra support on digital topics. Access to one to one support is by referral from a business adviser based in a local Business Gateway office.

The DigitalBoost programme enhances the existing digital workshops available from Business Gateway covering website development, online trading and social media.
