A group of Bridgnorth retailers and businesspeople received training about growing their businesses online as part of the town’s prizewinning package from the Great British High street contest. Delivered by Google, the event took place on 7 April at Bridgnorth Golf Club and drew 60 attendees from the local business community. The audience was taken through the basics of setting up a business online and on to more exotic topics like Google Spiders.
Scott Bowler, who runs IT company DCS Worldwide, said, “I’ve been working in digital marketing for 12 years and thought the content was perfect. The key message for me was ensuring your website is mobile phone-friendly… that’s so important for any business.”
