MUNDARING businesses were invited to take a digital step forward and learn how to grow online at Australia Post’s Go and Grow Online workshop.

Hosted by Australia Post, with a presentation from Google, the evening last Friday offered locals a chance to learn first-hand how a simple online presence could help grow their business, both here and overseas.

Bang Digital operations manager Freddy Hollow said the event would cover something for everyone from micro-business just starting out to those already operating an online store.

“This event is a great opportunity to show local business owners how they can better use technology including tools like Google My Business, Google AdWords and Google Remarketing to extend their online presence, generate new enquiries and grow their businesses online,” he said.

“A majority of small business owners don’t have the resources or time to take a good look at eCommerce and all its possibilities.

“This was an easy way for them to find out the latest technology and trends that Google offers and learn practical skills on how to improve your online marketing.”

Australia Post Head of online selling Rohin Aggarwal said a key focus was helping local business expand their market reach and exposure online.

“Go and Grow Online is all about empowering local Mundaring businesses to tap in to the huge opportunities available in eCommerce,” Mr Aggarwal said.

“This includes everything from establishing social media profiles, to setting up your own website or even partnering with Australia Post to learn how to sell into international markets.

“We are proud to be working with Google to provide local businesses with insider knowledge and a better understanding of how the boom in online shopping can help them.”
