Digital Garage for small businesses

Digital Garage for small businesses

Digital capability is a big issue for small businesses in the UK. Barnet libraries is opening a free, pop-up service to help improve digital skills which will save time, increase turnover and cultivate customers. Using the Google Digital Garage online learning platform, individuals can choose from over 23 different topics ranging from creating a website to learning about Google Analytics.

Who this is for

Any person aged 19 or over who is the owner of, an employee of, or a likely future employee of a business.  This includes:

  • Sole traders
  • Home-based enterprises
  • Business owners or employees
  • People seeking to start their own business
  • Employees of charities
  • Students/young people building skills for employment

Why you should participate in this project

If you already run or work for a small business or want to start your own you can learn about

  • Building a website
  • Connecting with email
  • Search engine optimization
  • Web analytics
  • Marketing your business online
  • Social media
  • Expanding internationally
  • Building an online shop
  • Using video

and much more. Perhaps you’re a sole practitioner and would like to meet others in the same position.  Future plans include networking opportunities on a regular basis. The time commitment is minimal but the results will be rewarding!

What takes place

Using the Google Digital Garage platform, participants need to spend at least one hour engaged in learning and complete a minimum of 7 lessons.  An initial diagnostic session will help determine which lessons to take, although individuals can take as many lessons as they wish. This can be spread out over multiple sessions in a library or anywhere with a connection to the internet. Each lesson consists of of a short video and a review which take about 5 minutes. Tablets are available for use or participants may bring their own laptops or mobile devices.
