Free and funded by Dorset Growth Hub for all eligible Dorset businesses, specifically growing businesses who need to better understand the topics covered on the day and where they can get the best support to help them with their journey.

With thanks to the great venue that is Merley House, we are bringing a collection of our workshops to one venue in order to deliver a day of engaging, interactive, digital content to help you and your business navigate the digital world. The digital landscape can be complex and a vast subject to cover, but we hope this day will bring insight, knowledge and some key information to take away that will let you improve or start your digital journey.

We’ve cherry-picked some of the most in-demand subjects from business owners across Dorset and packaged them up into some bitesize 2 hour workshops; all you need to do is choose which two workshops you want to attend on the day. We will provide the “how to” approach in four key areas. 

SEO Today – a workshop on the Serach Engine Optimisation changes as of April 2019 with tips on how to maximise them for your online presence

Email Marketing – how to generate e-newsletter and e-shots using Mailchimp.

Instagram Stories  – Explore one of the fast-growing and most engaging digital marketing tools. Your Instagram Stories may disappear after just 24 hours, but their impact on your audience can last much longer. Learn how to use Stories to connect with your customers.

Website User Experience – You like your website, but do your customer? Learn what makes an effective website that not only communicates well but turns website visitors into customers. With support from George Beverly of Insightful UX and their new UX Campus, it;s a workshop not to be missed!

We will take care of refreshments, lunch and networking opportunities and ensure the day is as useful for you as possible.

We will have guest companies including Insightful UXSouth Coast SocialMPZ Mail providing industry insights to the world of Website User Experience, Social Media and Email Marketing Automation.
