Over the past few years, the Olds Institute (OI) for Community & Regional Development’s Connected Community Committee (CCC) has analyzed the online presence of businesses in Olds. We are excited to see that the number of businesses in our community with an online presence is increasing. We would like to increase this number even further. The first question asked was; can customers find your business while searching? Unfortunately, for 422 out 650 businesses in Olds, they cannot!
The questions in our survey go on to include criteria such as online e-commerce, social media use, site’s visual appeal, and many more. The OI is dedicated to making Olds a better place to do business and make Olds a better place to live. Because of this, the CCC has the goal that every business and resident in Olds use technology to enhance their lives. For business, web presence is a large part of this.
We want to help! To that end, we would like to invite you to breakfast. During breakfast you will have the opportunity to hear a quick review of how businesses in Olds are performing in the online business environment. Afterward, you will have the opportunity to hear Brian Siddle from Strong Coffee Marketing, who will give us a global view of how businesses in Canada and the world are engaging and succeeding in online commerce. We hope you will discover how to use these tools to DOUBLE business!
