London E-Business Support Programme

London E-Business Support Programme

Once you register onto this free programme, our e-business advisers will carry out an e-business audit to assess exactly what aspects of e-business will most benefit your organisation.

This could involve:

  • helping you identify the best social media platform and building an online community for your marketing effort
  • improving your website and how you manage its content, and the image it projects to the outside world
  • using search engine optimisation (SEO) to improve how your customers and potential customers see you and how easily they can find your site when searching on the web
  • helping to keep your data secure by building a solid cyber security foundation.

How can you help me?

The Local London e-business support programme is bespoke, which means our e-business adviser will work with you to develop a programme that suits your needs.

This is not just another training programme, although training is included and we can take you and your staff through all of the elements necessary to achieve your objectives.

Training takes place in our modern computer suite in Woolwich or at The Engine House in Erith. We can deliver some training on site at your premises if required. If you prefer or it's more convenient, we're able to deliver our support online using Zoom or Teams.

So how does it work?

Step 1: Join the Local London e-business support programme and meet your adviser

Your adviser is an expert in all aspects of e-business and will explain how the programme can add value to your business by using low-cost (or, in some cases, free) solutions to help you better engage with your customers, manage your workflow and increase productivity.

Like all of our advisers, your e-business adviser is an experienced businessperson. That means you get real-world expertise and support from someone who has 'been there and done that'.

Step 2: We'll take a look at your business and discover where e-business could support you better

Once you're registered onto the programme, your adviser will audit your business to assess which aspects of it would benefit from using e-business. The assessment will include a skills audit of your staff, and training can be organised where appropriate.

The adviser explores every aspect, from:

  • content management systems (to give you control over your web content)
  • CRM systems (to help you manage your customer relationships and sales)
  • e-commerce
  • social media and SEO (how people find you on the web and the image your business projects to the world)
  • remote working
  • payment platforms
  • cyber security

and much more.

Step 3: Apply your new e-business skills

The Local London e-business support programme is tailored to you, which means our adviser will work with you to develop a programme that suits your needs.

Your e-business adviser is there to support you. They can help you implement new practices and show you how to use your new e-business skills to benefit your business.

It sounds good but aren't we too small to bother with all of this?

Many small businesses think e-business solutions are just for large corporates. In today's business environment, you simply can't afford to be without it. We're living in a connected world and many of the smallest businesses are internet-facing and can benefit from its use.

We'll explain in simple terms how your business can benefit from this programme and e-business and plug into a more productive lifecycle.
