The webinars are being delivered by Mansfield and Ashfield 2020 on behalf of Mansfield District Council, in partnership with Mansfield BID, Four Seasons Shopping Centre and the European Union Regional Development Fund.

The sessions, to be presented virtually through Zoom, will be held on 29th April, 6th May and 12th May, and will cover visual merchandising, web presence and targeted digital marketing. 

Martyn Saxton, the council’s head of planning and regeneration, said: “These free sessions will be an invaluable guide to businesses who will be wanting to make up a lot of lost ground due to the pandemic lockdowns.

“Just knowing how best to lay out your products in a store, how to make the most of your business website and the importance to using social media effectively to aid sales could make a big difference to trading figures.”
