As part of the European Regional Development funded work in Telford & Shropshire to increase levels of enterprise in younger age groups, we're organising some 'SUPER SATURDAY' events that are focussed on PROFIT MAKING in your businesses.
A website is not optional in business its VITAL
Your business SHOULD NOT be without web presence
Sue Williams, founder of www.sioux.co.uk will be here and is offering to design your site free of charge with the only cost to you the ongoing £6 monthly hosting charge. She will also teach you how to update your site and manage your content.
A Facebook for Business page is now an essential tool for any new business and Sue will show you how to set one up without falling foul of Facebook's regulations, as well as how you can use it to increase traffic to your website.
She will also tell you how you can use Twitter to raise your business' profile - even if you're not a fan of Tweeting.....
From there on you need to know how to blog, sell on line and let your customers find you....
ANDREW WHITFIELD is with us to show how to:
SELL ON LINE (by someone who DOES)
Andrew will show us how to:
- DRIVE TRAFFIC TO YOUR SITE
- MAKE MONEY FROM YOUR WEB BASED BUSINESS
- BLOG FOR PROFIT
A hands on workshop...for MONEY MAKING OPPORTUNITIES
Andrew Whitfield started this business purely by accident after a chance conversation with a good friend who was trying to sell items from a shop on eBay. He did not have a great deal of technical knowledge of how eBay and the Internet worked but enough of an understanding to list items, and he had made some sales. Andrew, on the other hand, had never purchased or sold anything on, or even considered using, eBay, Amazon, or any other website platform to buy and sell things. He was starting as a complete beginner. Andrew has now been SELLING ONLINE for many years and has LAUNCHED HIS OWN online training company (www.h2so.org) designed to help new start-ups or existing online retail business owners.
We are delighted to welcome Andrew & Sue to the Hub - please register your place below - this event will not be advertised and tickets are only available by invitation to YOUNG BRITAIN MEMBERS
2pm - 4.30pm Saturday April 26th
Usual fresh baked cakes on arrival!
When & Where
BUSINESS BY DESIGN
We provide business support services that include StartUp Boot Camps, entrepreneur events, office administrative products and co working services.
We fervently believe that entrepreneurs can be taught and we also believe that support for lone entrepreneurs is vital in helping businesses to grow.
You can 'buy in' the skills and services you need to expand and increase sales.
The skills to start a business or become self-employed are easily acquired and can be life-changing. Not only do local self employed people and entrepreneurs stay local and buy local, they drive the economy and make local areas better places to live and work.
We are the main provider of start-up & business support in the area (providing 35+ training places a month) and are proud to be working with Enterprise Nation as the regional business champion, managing events, networks and member support. We also work with Transmit Start Ups helping with applications by individuals seeking business start up finance through the government funded Start Up Loans Company.
