Social media is a tool used by many individuals, but businesses can still be slow to join the craze.
Onlincolnshire, a project run by the Lincolnshire County Council and funded by the European Regional Development Fund, is aiming to change that.
They are organising a series of free workshops to help local businesses get online and effectively use social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.

Thursday 13th November, Commerce House, Outer Circle Road Lincoln

These sessions are part of onlincolnshire’s 12 business support programme that also includes one-to-one business coaching sessions and other internet related seminars. More information can be found by emailing them on email@example.com
