Doing business online: Free workshops

Spaces are now available for a series of masterclasses across Lincolnshire, helping businesses learn the secrets of e-commerce, internet marketing and social media.

The masterclasses hosted by Onlincolnshire offer top tips on selling over the internet and successful online marketing, as well as social media workshops which look in detail at using Twitter, Facebook and Linkedin.

The 17 events will be held between now and July in Sleaford, Stamford, Lincoln, Rutland, Spalding and Grantham, and are open to all businesses across Lincolnshire and Rutland.

The first social media surgeries will take place on Wednesday 23rd April at the New Life Centre in Sleaford; the first is a workshop on Twitter between 9.30am and 12.30pm, while the second will be on Linkedin between 1pm and 4pm.

The masterclasses are limited to 12 people, the social media surgeries are limited to six people, and places are allocated on a first come, first served basis. One-to-one advice and support is also being offered.

The activity is part of a wider project of support across Lincolnshire and Rutland being run by Onlincolnshire, which is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
