Free workshops to aid your business

Business Gateway Borders is hosting two free workshops at Ettrick Riverside, Selkirk, on June 28.

Presented by Stephen Whitelaw, an industry influencer on both sides of the Atlantic, the Future of the Web seminar is an interactive and in-depth look into how you can exploit the new and emerging technologies for your company.

As well as many live demonstrations, the seminars will outline real-life case studies and reveal up-to-date online tricks and techniques that will save you time and money with your online marketing campaigns. The workshop runs from 10am till noon.

The second workshop, 1.30-3.30pm, is The Ultimate Pinterest Guide. Here, Stephen will look at the hot new social network site – which has more than 16 million visitors a month and is generating more referral traffic than YouTube, Google+ and LinkedIn combined – and will explain how to use Pinterest to generate leads, make more sales, engage is a deeper way with your existing customer base and raise your business profile to an ever increasing audience.

The workshops are free but spaces are limited, so will be offered on a first come, first serve basis.

You will need to make a separate booking for each seminar. To book, visit
