The Growth Hub is due to stage series of free digital focused events, workshops, webinars and one-to-one coaching sessions this October 2021, to equip Gloucestershire businesses with the essential skills they need to thrive.
Digital October finds its roots back in July 2021, when GFirst LEP delivered its Covid-19 Digital Recovery Grants of £3,000 to support the online recovery plans of Gloucestershire SMEs.
Hundreds of businesses stepped forward, revealing that social media, SEO and creating quality digital content were high on firms’ agendas and would play an essential role in their recovery.
Not every business that applied was successful in receiving a grant, but GFirst LEP and The Growth Hub committed to ensuring all received the digital support they needed – for free.
Digital October will aim to help business leaders learn digital skills including how to set up and run Facebook and Instagram adverts, how to create video content to drive more website traffic, how to broadcast through podcasts and how to market on social media.
SMEs can get involved in free events and workshops hosted by partners including Skylight 9, Eight Interactive and Made4U Podcasts.
