The digital age is dramatically changing the way every business operates - no matter what industry you are in and where you are based!
You probably already know how important it is to a have a website for your business, that you can use social media and other digital channels to get your business ‘out there’, and there are apps and other things you can use to run your business or work more efficiently from your store and on the go. But you may not have had time to find out ‘what is out there’, how to get started, what the tried and tested systems are and who is already using them with great success.
Come along to the Sunshine Coast Council’s workshop - Technology Your Need To Know as a Retail Business - and hear from local businesses who have already ‘gone digital’ and a local digital specialist who is helping many Sunshine Coast businesses save time and money through the use of online tools. All of the information will be shared in a fun, easy to understand and non technical way.
This 2 hour session is designed to specifically help retail businesses learn more about the technology available to them and how to implement it into their businesses. Whether you are a hair or beauty salon, fashion boutique or other retailer this workshop is applicable to you.
