Northern Beaches Council is offering a free hands-on Digital Marketing Program (DMP) which will empower our local businesses to build their digital capacity which will enable them to better connect to customers and stay / grow their business.

20 local businesses have been selected to pilot this program, which will take them through steps to develop a tailored digital marketing program (starting January 2021).  

This FREE program will be held via online group sessions, with 1:1 support sessions if needed.  The program includes eight weeks of learning and free webinars and support.

It will cover:

  • Business / retail fundamentals
  • Today’s connected customer
  • Digital marketing fundamentals - audit, tools, build
  • Website and online sales fundamentals
  • Social media - Facebook, Instagram and YouTube
  • Promotional campaign involving whole area
  • Content creation
  • Execution

At the end of the program, participants will be given the opportunity to delve into each topic deeper with workshops that will allow them to apply the learning and tools to their business.

We will be hosting free webinars which will be accessible to all businesses registered which will run at the same time as the DMP. Don’t worry if you don’t have experience in accessing webinars etc, we will help you and guide you the whole way!  

We look forward to connecting and growing with you!
