Could You Support Business Growth?

To celebrate and encourage the growth and success of SMEs in the region, the Wakefield Business Support Programme is delivering a series of four Seminars in one day on the theme of Business Growth. The workshops will be complementary to a free exhibition for businesses, ensuring a full day of activity to engage Wakefield District Businesses. The event will be held on the Thursday 14th May at Rogerthorpe Manor Hotel.

The series will focus on:

  • Website Development & Search Engine Optimisation (am)
  • Branding (pm)
  • Marketing and Promotions (pm)

We would like to know if you would be interested in participating as the guest speaker for Website Development & Search Engine Optimisation or the Branding event.

Website Development & SEO

The objective of the session is for SMEs to understand how website development will benefit their businesses and help to achieve growth. They should understand what website options are available and what low cost options they can use to create, manage or develop their websites. They should leave with a better understanding of the impact of website activity and the need for online access for small businesses.

For SEO the objective of this session will be for SMEs to understand how to maximize their online presence and how they can use basic tools to raise their online profile and increase relevant web use. SEO is seen as too challenging by SMEs and we want to dispel the myth that they cannot manage this themselves, or on a relatively low budget. The objective of this session will be for SMEs to understand how to maximize their online presence and how they can use basic tools to raise their online profile and increase relevant web use.
