Digital Support

Digital is being Open all Hours!

This can include…

  • Accepting payment with bank cards as well as cash.

  • Enabling customers to buy your products through their mobile phones and electronic devices. 
  • Reaching thousands of people online with an interest in your service or product for free or very little cost. 
  • Your website and social media channels being visible to targeted customers by using Search Engine Optimisation.
  • Using free tools to catch the attention of possible customers – by posting images on Instagram, posts on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, using blogs and emails, or engaging through LinkedIn
