Business Skills Training Courses

How can we help you?

Funded Business Skills Training

As a small business owner/manager you have always had a lot of hats to wear, juggling your time between sales, marketing, admin and finance, and actually servicing your customers. It is probably a long time since you had the benefit of any business skills training and now with the introduction of social media in to the mix, it is easy to feel overwhelmed. You keep being told that you should be on Facebook, have a Twitter account, or a business page on one of the other popular social networking sites, but you just don’t know how to fit it all in and what it will achieve. If you are using social media you might have no idea how it is helping your business, and probably feel that you are just wasting your time.

Sound familiar? Well help is at hand to show you how to reduce time and maximise results.

Laptop and mobileZeal for Business in partnership with Opportunities Workshop is currently offering two funded skills development courses, covering business innovation and creativity, and communication skills via social media marketing.

You will learn how to put structure and focus in to your social media marketing activities and use site analytics to really understand your target audience. Analytics will tell you exactly what you are achieving, which posts people like, share and engage with. You will see your audience grow and learn to understand their needs, both in terms of information they need and problems they are seeking solutions for.

Both courses will equip you with the knowledge and skills to streamline your online activities and focus on a structured plan of valuable content delivery, raising your company profile and driving ‘purchase ready’ visitors to your website.

So if you would like to upskill and understand how to grow your business using the power of social media using intelligence gathered by analytics to inspire business innovation and inform your plans for business growth, we have the course for you.
