A TEAM of business specialists has further developed the work it is carrying out with small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) across Northumberland.

After launching a new digital support programme for SMEs in the summer, Business Northumberland has now appointed Digital Allies, a digital marketing company, to deliver fully-funded workshops to enterprises across the county.

Scott Goodacre, the training lead for Digital Allies, has a background in teaching and experience as a digital marketing manager, and will deliver the workshops covering social media, e-commerce, websites and search engine optimism over the next three years.

He said: “We are excited to start working with SMEs across Northumberland in order to improve their digital marketing.

“The Business Northumberland programme is a fantastic opportunity for businesses to access professional help and support at no cost, and we are proud to be playing our part in supporting this community.”

Digital Allies join Lara Mellor Training and Consultancy to deliver digitally focused workshops in the region, helping SMEs on the Business Northumberland programme.
