What our participants say:
"The Music Place was very fortunate to have been a part of the E-business program. The one-on-one sessions and live webinars with my mentors were invaluable. Their support and guidance helped us launch a brand-new digital marketing campaign, develop an online music lesson portal, and improve our bottom line. The expertise in digital tools yielded more efficient business operations and opened our minds to many more new possibilities and options for running the business.
Vernette’s (Digital Adviser) and Liz’s (Business Adviser) support has given our small business a brighter and more promising outlook. We highly recommend this program to anyone looking to enhance their digital presence and improve their business operations." Liliana Dimovska, The Music Place
“Since joining the Programme I have managed to increase our company’s website visitors by 6,566% - our email marketing engagement by 450% and our social media presence has increased by 1,566% - yes unbelievable, AND its all still increasing!” Mike Cooper, Inspiring Salons Ltd
‘We’re incredibly grateful to be part of the E-business programme, to have the support of a wide selection of industry professionals available to help us shape our business strategy and operations is really useful. As with most small businesses we are a small team that’s time and resource poor and having mentors to help equip us with better business tools and prioritise our focus is brilliant’. Poppy Sherbrooke, Percy Langley
"I have learnt the importance of time management and organisation, and how apps and technology can help me to save time and focus on developing my craft. I am more conscious of what I can do myself, and what I can delegate to external professionals such as social media agencies, music producers and videographers. I now understand how to utilise digital tools to help my creative business thrive." Susanna Paisio
How does it work?
Digital Review, Advice & Support
You will be invited to have an initial zoom meeting with a Business Adviser - who will look at your current use of technology and digital tools. This will identify how your business is operating in a range of areas including: your website; social media; email marketing; e-accounting; e-commerce; online payment systems; customer relationship management systems; data security; back-ups and use of any online sales platforms.
Your Adviser will produce a bespoke Digital Action Plan for your business - detailing the actions you can take to maximise your business sales and efficiency - saving your business time and money.
You will then be introduced to an expert Digital Adviser who will advise you further on how to implement the actions recommended. After this you will be able to book follow up meetings with your Business Adviser and have additional sessions with the Digital Adviser as required.

Both you, and any of your employees, have the opportunity to enhance your digital skills by attending the Programme's webinars - you can choose which ones are relevant for you to attend and whether you want to attend live or view recorded sessions in your own time on our E-business Programme Online Learning Suite.
