Local businesses: sign up for a free digital session with Google, Friday 26th July This coming Friday, 26th July, Paul Blomfield will be at Electric Works for a Google event showing small businesses how to build trade through developing their on-line presence.

The workshop is to help small businesses grow using the Internet and to help business owners develop their 'e-skills'. A study by the Boston Consulting Group has shown that businesses with an online presence, grow four to eight times faster than those who don't. Staff from Google will be on hand to meet Sheffield business owners and offer advice and tips on how to make the most of the Internet and grow a business online. The event has been designed to support and advise businesses regardless of their technical expertise - from starting out and creating their first website, through to improving an existing website and online marketing. If you run a business you can sign up for a free consultation and workshops via The event is at Electric Works, Sheffield Digital Campus, Sheffield, S1 2BJ from 10.30am Spaces are limited, so sign up quickly! Paul Blomfield said: "I think this event is a great idea because in today's economy a successful online presence is increasingly vital for businesses. It's especially important for the 40,000 small and medium sized businesses in South Yorkshire who are the backbone of our local economy and economic recovery. So whether your business is online or not I'd recommend signing up for the workshop to take advantage of Google's expertise and get tips on how to grow your business online."
