Federal Budget announcement pain or gain for business ?

It will be interesting times ahead for small to medium businesses with the Federal Budget to be announced next week and a State Election less than twelve months away. Historically for Chamber members the political cycles have been known to slow down spending with business and consumers waiting to see “what happens” rather than spend their cold hard cash.

It’s during these times that business should be on the front foot, developing new customer attraction and retention strategies to be able to ride the rocky road ahead. One of these strategies is to embrace the digital age and grow your business online. The value of the digital economy in Albury Wodonga is estimated at $238mil at the lowest level. If your business does not have an online presence at all, then now is a great time to start by attending one of the many Albury Wodonga Digital Enterprise Program Free Workshops throughout Albury and Wodonga. Workshops cover areas such as building a Web Presence, Online Marketing, Mobile Technology, Cloud Computing and E Commerce.

Now is the time to embrace all things digital and bring yourself and your business into the digital age – and its Free. What are you waiting for? Further information is available at: www.awdep.com.au – register today and don’t miss out – places are limited.
