What is Digital First Aid?
East Suffolk Smart Towns wants to offer businesses some immediate support with digital choices and interventions. They have teamed up with the experts at Business Growth Coaching Network to offer a support package to businesses which will include an online diagnostics report, followed by up to an hour’s 1-to-1 coaching with a digital expert, then a full responsive programme of workshops which will address specific areas of business needs. The diagnostics will lead to a needs report with recommendations around issues such as web presence, social media, tech devices and software. In addition, for certain businesses they may be eligible for a match fund grant for digital requirements identified by the coaching.
Which businesses are they trying to support?
This programme has been designed for small businesses on the high street, or other food and drink places, art businesses, cafes and independent restaurants, retail and customer-facing small businesses. Unfortunately, the programme cannot include accommodation or pubs.
If any local businesses are interested in signing up for the programme, they can email email@example.com with their business details and any immediate digital requirements they may have.
