Local businesses across the Central West are encouraged to take part in an upcoming free, two-part digital marketing webinar series.

Regional Development Central West is partnering with Banika Smee from Orange-based agency Brendan Gunn Media Group (BGMG) for the online event which will kick off next week on Wednesday, April 29.

RDA Central West CEO, Sam Harma said the webinar series is aimed at providing local businesses with the information and skills they need to successfully market their business in the digital age.

“This is an exciting and timely opportunity for Central West businesses to learn how to enhance their online presence,” said Mr. Harma.

“To remain competitive in the current climate it is essential for local businesses to have an online platform and maximise on the digital footprint of consumers.

“One of the positive things to come out of COVID-19 has been witnessing the ways in which local businesses in the Central West have adapted by using social media and boosting the capacity of their website.

“I believe this webinar series can help to further develop the knowledge and skills required to not only navigate this period, but ensure businesses continue to grow and thrive into the future.

“RDA Central West is thrilled to work with BGMG and Banika Smee who will be hosting the event, as she not only brings a local perspective, but has a wealth of knowledge in this field.”

The webinar series will be presented across two weeks. The first session will be held on Wednesday, 29 April from 10am – 12pm and focus on social media marketing. The second webinar will run on Wednesday, 6 May from 10am – 12pm and concentrate on website basics.
