Business owners in the Gold Coast are being invited to learn about surviving in the digital age, with Mayor Tom Tate striving to help create and protect 10,000 new jobs in the near future. This could be beneficial for those living in Surfers Paradise property and running their own small business in the region.
The Digital Enterprise Program (DEP) is designed to help people learn about online services by providing a number of short courses and mentoring sessions with the end goal of helping people to adapt to a faster-paced business environment.
"To survive and succeed in the digital age, every business needs the right skills and this program will help position the Gold Coast as a leading digital economy. By building more successful businesses, we're aiming to create more jobs as well," said Mr Tate in a February 17 statement.
"This program will certainly give Gold Coast companies an edge when it comes to doing business in the digital environment."
The training covers aspects of business like search engine optimisation, online marketing, social media use, web hosting and mobility solutions. Furthermore, mentors will be available to help with any specific questions raised.
Surfers Paradise property owners could take this opportunity to further their own business interests, which could be good for the economy overall.
