1. POW! Workshop Evening
No time for social media and digital marketing? We know how little spare time small business owners have so our workshops focus on time-saving tools, effective advertising for under a tenner, one-off essentials listings and some great tips from the trade.
Even better, the evening is designed by you. You tell us what you need most and we’ll book the speakers and trainers to focus on those topics.
The evening will also include our ‘social media showdown’ showing what Roman Road’s businesses do best on social media how each business can piggyback off one another to become greater than its sum parts.
We want to hear about what you need most. Tell us on PowDigitalCamp Facebook page now – we will be offering free tips and advice here straight away.

Increase the visibility of your business and get more sales by using free social media and digital tools. It’s easier than you think.
Sit down with a trainer for a one-on-one session and ask them anything – no questions to big or too small. Bring your own device and let our experts troubleshoot or set you up on new platforms, pick up a cheat sheet or simply come and be nosey.
