Google is paying a visit to Harpenden this Friday to help teach businesses how to grow their digital skills.
The search engine’s ‘digital garage’ is coming to Harpenden Public Halls on Friday, September 7, from 10am to 4pm, as part of its Market Towns tour.
As part of the visit, Google is offering training to market traders to help them reach new customers beyond their local area; showing them how to build a digital marketing plan, make their stall more visible online and use social media to build a personal brand.
Hitchin and Harpenden MP Bim Afolami said: “I am delighted that the Google Digital Garage is visiting Harpenden, as it is a fantastic opportunity for constituents to gain new skills.
“I particularly welcome its focus on helping small businesses to harness the power of the internet to reach more customers and increase their business potential.”
The training is free and visitors can either book in advance or drop by for on-the-spot help.
