What is the Digital Economy Program?


The Digital Economy Program is a service designed to help your small business expand online for no charge! This program will help your small business undergo digital transformations and adopt eCommerce practices.

The program can help your business:
• Improve your ability to reach customers
• Increase SEO rankings
• Elevate your business’ e-commerce presence

Participating small businesses will receive access to a local Digital Service Squad to help you increase your online presence utilizing digital tools and best practices that are essential to success in today’s online business environment.

“[The] Digital Service Squad helped get the word out about Candy’s Cabs. It was a great experience as I appreciate the help with marketing and advertising. I really enjoyed the services provided by the Digital Service Squad program, especially the one-on-one assistance. I believe Digital Service Squad is a great service to help small businesses get online. DSS has been very helpful and friendly.” 
The program is well thought out and staffed by caring and knowledgeable people. Although I had a basic knowledge of website building and management, the staff helped supplement my knowledge with practical and timely suggestions.. When I tried to build the website on my own, it was easy to get lost in all the noise and “overbuild” the website. DSS helped by producing a clean and simple website that is easy to maintain and easy for customers to navigate.
