'Do It Digital' Roadshow Backs Belfast Businesses

The 'Do It Digital' roadshow has backed businesses in Belfast today, 21 March.

The roadshow pulled up outside City Hall, as part of the UK-wide '100 Days of Digital' campaign, which aims to highlight how greater digital engagement can strengthen small businesses.

'Do It Digital' is an independent, not-for-profit campaign that looks to highlight resources around the UK, online and off, that can help small businesses take the next step in digital.

The main areas covered at the workshop were how to market your business online, finding the right platform for your business and creating engaging content to connect with your potential client and sell more of your products or services.

Councillor Aileen Graham, Chair of the council's City Growth and Regeneration Committee, said: "SMEs need all the support they can get and this free roadshow and workshop at City Hall will help local companies take those important steps to market themselves online to attract more business and sell more services or products. We are proud to support this initiative."
