A new business support programme set to transform how local SMEs sell and interact online has been launched.

As part of the NMD Growth Programme, the six week ‘Sales and Digital Marketing Bootcamp’ is part funded by Invest Northern Ireland and the European Regional Development Fund under the Investment for Growth and Jobs Northern Ireland (2014 -2020) programme.

The programme is designed to provide participants with the basic skills and understanding to communicate more effectively with their customers online.

“The last number of years have seen an exponential growth in the role of social media, online shopping and virtual meetings and events.

“it is not always enough to solely run your business offline or in-store now.

“This is the perfect time of the year for SMEs to review the way they work and to enhance their skills within the business.

“Owners and managers who wish to access the tools and resources they need to succeed in the digital world should get in touch.

“You’ll learn invaluable new skills and take away crucial advice from some of the most experienced mentors in the business.”

The ‘Sales and Digital Marketing Bootcamp’ is open to businesses based in the Newry Mourne and Down District Council area, employing less than 50 staff and who have not yet availed of support from NMD Business Growth.

Please note that the deadline to register is Friday 17 February and all mentoring time must be completed before 31 March 2023.

Demand is likely to be significant for this Programme so early registration is advised.
