A digital marketing service is teaming up with industry experts to share their advice with small and medium-sized businesses.

Digital Kitbag is hosting a free digital marketing seminar for local SMEs in collaboration with our sister title The Yorkshire Post on at The White Cloth Gallery in Leeds on Tuesday May 12.

All businesses who attend will also be entered into a prize draw to win a free professional website from Digital Kitbag.

The event is open to all small and medium sized businesses in North Kirklees.

Registrants can choose to attend one of four sessions that will run over two hours to fit in with their work schedule: 9am, 12 noon, 3pm or 6pm.

Digital Kitbag managing director Chris Brake said: “Today, SMEs have so much choice when it comes to promoting their business online – from websites to search engine marketing, emails to social media – the list goes on. It can seem very complex and can quickly become overwhelming.

“A recent survey we conducted with Buzzboard into the SME digital marketing landscape showed shocking levels of digital unreadiness holding back UK SMEs – just under half don’t even have a website.

“Our seminars are designed to address this and take away the complexity to help SMEs gain valuable insight into digital marketing that will empower them for the future. We’re looking forward to seeing many local businesses attend on the day.”
