Free training and business advice for retailers in Somerset and Devon

Cosmic is offering a package of free training and business advice to retailers in Devon and Somerset.

With the high street and retailers so dramatically impacted by lockdowns and restrictions, Cosmic is keen to support businesses looking to adapt to the circumstances and wanting to improve their sales opportunities.

The company is offering a series of training workshops over the next six weeks, and inviting all attendees to also receive a one-to-one action planning session with our advisors. All for free.

Each of the following 1.5hr events will be repeated three times, giving plenty of chance for people to attend.

The sessions are:

Selling online – a straightforward, no fuss workshop to guide you through setting up a successful online shop, establishing your online selling strategy, online customer service, payment options and the rules for online and distance selling.

Social media for retail businesses – looking at how you become successful on social media; How you create a sustainable social media strategy; and How you can be sure customers will engage and interact with your business.

Digital marketing strategies for retail businesses – learn how to build a digital marketing plan to reach your customers, raise awareness, interest and a create desire to purchase your products.

Booking and further information is available on Eventbrite here:

This activity is being funded by Heart of the South West Growth Hub.
