Free workshop hosted at Queensland Times

THE evolution of the internet has placed many demands on small business. Most businesses have a website or use some form of digital marketing platform as a sales facilitator.

Prices for websites can vary significantly. They are a significant investment in time and money. Yet, is that investment being fully realised?

All media, if it works, is a great investment. If it does not work it can be very costly. Like any business investment it needs to be fully researched and planned.

A recent survey by TAFE Small Business Solutions found that 26% of businesses have an online shop, 54% do not, and 16% do not have a shop yet get solid leads from their website.

A small percentage would like a shop (1.33%) and 1.3% did but it did not work for them. Over 58% said their online content was slightly effective or too ineffective in reaching their target market. Some 45% did what they could about writing the content and another 33% outsourced the writing to a third party.

And 70% said they would like to know how to write copy for their website and social media.
