Digital Jumpstart- Booster tools for small businesses.

We are delighted to announce that we are launching our new Digital Jumpstart programme for small businesses. This additional service is designed to help the businesses that we work with flourish by offering the implementation of several technologies that are beneficial to the running and operation of your company in the digital age. These services are now available and completely free to any business that has a Sixth Sense Training Modern Apprentice working for their organisation. The service is designed to streamline the day to day running of your business as well as increase your business’s online exposure.

So now not only do you get 100% government funded training for your business’s new apprentice, with Digital Jumpstart you also get access to our business expert’s experience and tried and tested tools to help you grow your business.

The following Digital Jumpstart services are now available to any interested business that employs at least one modern apprentice:

Professional Website Design– Studies show that between 70-80% of people research a company online before visiting the small business or making a purchase with them. Therefore, it is important that when potential customers search for your company they are impressed with what they find. A sleek, well-made website really highlights the professionalism of your business and offers the consumer confidence in choosing you. Our in-house IT team will create a functional website that is both aesthetically pleasing as well as automatically optimised for mobile browsers for any small business that we have an IT or Digital Modern Apprentice within. We will also provide the apprentice with the tools to maintain and update the site as required.

Online Coding Course–  We will fund an acclaimed external course that teaches your apprentice(s) the fundamentals. Develop insider tips to work quickly and efficiently with web technologies like HTML5, CSS3 and Python.  The course also shows the apprentice how to build your own responsive websites using more advanced techniques such as iQuery PHP 7, MySQL 5 and Twitter Bootstrap. By then they’ll be developing blogs and eCommerce sites with WordPress, and learn smart ways to add dynamic content, using APls to connect to sites such as Google Maps and Facebook. “As we all know, the best way to learn is to do, so you’ll complete fun website challenges at every turn. Plus, as you fly through the course, you’ll use your skills to put a site together as you go. The final challenge is a full Twitter clone.”

Bespoke Database Design– Free custom built, mobile friendly database, to hold your customer records, track sales and projects, collaborate with colleagues and more.

Facebook Monitor Multiple Social Media Streams in One Place. This will allow you to schedule posts in advance, easily view analytics data and share information easily. You can also use the platform for social media listening which helps to manage customer service on social media efficiently.
