I have recently had the help of Ciara Stead and Digital Mainstreet which is part of Almaguin Community Economic Development.

My business is not on a main street so I did not qualify for a grant however I have acquired an invaluable amount of help from this program with my website and social media. I built my website on squarespace with little to no experience and Ciara has improved the appearance, productivity and made it much more user friendly site.  My social media is now all connected making it easier to post and ensuring my posts are as effective as possible.

The most helpful part of all of this is that she taught me how to do it myself so in the future I can keep improving my business pages. Ciara also comes with a spectacular 360° camera. No business is to small for them to help. Very grateful for your help stepping up my business.
