A new program called Digital Durham has launched in Durham Region with the purpose of helping local businesses improve their digital presence, online marketing strategies and technologies with the goal of increasing revenue and growing their business.

Digital Durham is a partnership with the Town of Whitby and the Business Advisory Centre Durham (BACD) with a vision of assisting businesses in developing economic sustainability, competitiveness and employment growth in the region.

The program is an adaptation of the Enterprise Toronto Digital Main Street program. Businesses will complete the online Digital Assessment and receive a free ‘how to’ guide of recommendations and links to incorporate in their business.

“Our goal for this program is for businesses to better harness the power of digital marketing and ultimately to do more business online” said Teresa Shaver, Executive Direction of the BACD.  “Every business be it, main street ‘brick and mortar’ or online, needs an engaging digital presence and strategy that helps them grow and increase revenue thereby bringing jobs and wealth to the Region of Durham”.

The program also includes a directory of local digital technology and service companies to assist Durham Businesses building their digital presence.
