As part of our commitment to support our local businesses, Ilfracombe Town Council are promoting this excellent opportunity for our business community to partake in a FREE series of training workshops.

Cosmic are offering a package of free training and business advice to retailers across Devon.

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

The team at Cosmic are offering a series of training workshops over the next 6 weeks, and inviting all attendees to also receive a 1-to-1 action planning session with our advisors. All for free.

Each of the following 1.5hr events will be repeated 3 times, giving plenty of chance for people to attend:

  • Selling Online:
    • A straight forward, no fuss workshop, will 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.
