The Broadband East Riding Business Support Programme is encouraging local business growth by helping businesses to learn about, and exploit, the opportunities that digital technologies and high-speed broadband can offer.
For 2015, we have expanded our range of workshops designed specifically for businesses.
New workshops are being provided expanding on social media use for business including Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn masterclasses. Plus coverage of some other aspects of social media: a hands-on starter session, a look at legalities involved, and an introduction to some of the alternative social media platforms.
Also, our workshops provide more help for businesses looking to improve the performance of their website and get more traffic, with Search Engine Optimisation, Google Analytics and WordPress workshops.
Businesses can now learn more about other digital marketing methods such as online video, blogging, email and pay-per-click campaigns.
Our popular introduction to cloud computing workshop is being continued, giving businesses insight as to how they can reduce risk and cut costs.
Read about all our workshops that are available through the Broadband Business Support Programme, starting 4 March 2015.
IT consultant Richard Hale has saved thousands on fuel bills and slashed his annual commute by more than 20,000 miles – thanks to the Broadband East Riding programme.
Self-employed Richard said existing broadband speeds to his home in Bridlington were so slow he was forced to make a 140 mile commute to offices in York and Leeds to connect with clients.
But the arrival of superfast broadband as part of the Broadband East Riding roll-out has enabled him to stay put, ditch his long commute and work from the family home, serving customers around the globe.
Families can benefit from superfast broadband by streaming HD videos without waiting for them to buffer, download the latest movies on your TV box, browse the web quicker than before, play on-line gaming with people around the world - all at the same time - without any annoying delays.
Superfast broadband can help you to keep in touch with relatives around the world using video services without having to wait to connect and it gives you a smoother connection whilst chatting.
Superfast broadband can help businesses reach new markets, connect with customers and suppliers quickly, cut costs with online data storage and work from home or on the go.
