GET BUSINESS GET DIGITAL– a new service from Sedgemoor District Council and West Somerset Council  The Economic Development Team is pleased to announce a new programme designed to help and support micro and small businesses in the Sedgemoor/West Somerset area. The sessions are FREE and can be booked at www.getbusinessgetdigital.eventbrite.com More information can be found here: www.getbusinessgetdigital.co.uk Business Support at your fingertips Get Business, Get Digital offers a range of FREE support and mentoring to sole traders and small businesses living and working in the West Somerset and Sedgemoor areas. Tourism businesses in wider Somerset area are also able to take advantage of the programme. The workshops will cover highly practical subjects including starting up, book keeping basics, beginners guide to social media and building digital marketing campaigns Sessions are split into three key themes:

  • Starting your business
  • Building your business
  • Growing your business
Cllr Karen Mills, lead member for economic development at West Somerset Council, said: “This is a comprehensive package of support providing practical assistance to small businesses at all stages of development. As well as workshops on key business themes, additional one-to-one support will mean that businesses are able to talk through any specific issue they are facing in complete confidence.” Portfolio holder for Economic Development at Sedgemoor, Cllr Anne Fraser, said: “These free sessions with experts are a fantastic opportunity for businesses of whatever size and at whatever stage to learn how they can gain a commercial edge and stay ahead. We know most businesses, especially smaller ones, are so busy with the day job they seldom have time for their own development. These sessions are designed to meet that need so I would urge anyone who is interested to book a place as soon as possible.” The initiative is being funded by West Somerset Council, Sedgemoor District Council and the Hinkley Tourism Action Partnership from funds within the Hinkley Point C planning agreement. Workshops sessions will be based in Minehead, Williton, Burnham on Sea and Bridgwater and the initiative will run from now until September 2016. For a full list of workshops and information about the wider programme, visit www.getbusinessgetdigital.co.uk. It’s easy to register to attend, simply click on the event and follow the instructions.
