If you have a website, a social media account or promote your products and services online, this is a must attend!

In February 2018 we hosted a subsidised 2x half-day “Specialist Services in Digital Readiness to NSW” bootcamp for Cessnock City businesses. The feedback for the sold out event was exceptional with businesses reminded how to strategically plan for their digital marketing for optimised results. Small businesses have big opportunities in the online space.

The content for some was new, and for other attendees it reinvigorated and refreshed their enthusiasm for investing time and resources to achieving a successful online presence to compliment the other parts of their business.

Council’s Economic Development team have lobbied NSW Business Connect to bring back these workshops to help our local businesses tackle their digital presence head on.
