Digital Development Day

30-07-2014 10:00 Generator

Generator’s Digital Development Day is aimed at music and wider creative businesses, and designed to assist in developing your digital presence. The day will offer intense insight into optimising your online presence and social media strategy, with delivery being interactive and step-by-step as you navigate your way on your laptop to ensure you gain the maximum from the course. It is essential that each attendee brings a laptop, if this is not possible Generator do have several available to use on the day, but this will have to be arranged in advance.

We will cover everything you need to know from domain names and hosting, to uploading and maintaining your content using WordPress as a content management system. This is a practical session and at the end of the day you will come away with a fully functioning customised website which will help attract new fans and customers, keeping you ahead of the game in the digital marketplace.

To ensure attendees get exactly what they need from the sessions, places are limited to 6 per session. However, we will be running further sessions regularly throughout the year.

Places at this event are priced at £79 per place, or FREE OF CHARGE for artists or businesses from the North East of England, thanks to our ERDF funding.*
