Small businesses in Cardiff will be able to access a free workshop on how to use social media to promote their businesses when Do It Digital – the not-for-profit campaign that aims to help small, independent businesses around the UK make the most of the advantages of being online – brings its nationwide digital roadshow to the city on Tuesday, March 28th.
Prab Chadha from Cardiff-based Digital Maverick will deliver a workshop entitled How To Grow Your Business Using Social Media in 2017 on board the Do It Digital bus outside Cardiff City Hall. Prab, a business mentor with the Prince’s Trust and Welsh Assembly Government, will be sharing some of his experience when it comes to entrepreneurs looking to expand their social media presence for their business. Attendance at the workshop is free but places must be pre-booked here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/how-to-grow-your-business-using-social-media-in-2017-tickets-32583304541. For those unable to attend in person, the event will be streamed live on Facebook and via Periscope on Twitter.
During the course of the day, two local businesses will also receive a digital makeover with web, social media and digital strategy experts giving them one to one advice and guidance on board the Do It Digital bus.
Do It Digital Director, Michelle Ovens says:
“The Do It Digital campaign is not only about helping the digitally un-engaged take their first steps online but also helping those already online to expand their digital horizons. This could mean anything from a first, simple web presence to taking the first steps towards selling online.”
“Digital engagement is crucial for all aspects of business, from marketing and recruitment to banking and accounting, and is only likely to become more so. Digital engagement will become increasingly central to the development of competitive, profitable and growing businesses.”
