The new programme will offer businesses operating in the creative digital and music industries the chance to improve their on-line power and become educated in the use of new innovations such as apps, websites, eCommerce and streaming access platforms.

Generator’s Business Support Programme Manager Emma Whitenstall said: “The recent Tech Nation Report proved just how strong and dynamic the North East creative digital sector is and now is the perfect time to launch this.

“We’re sure this will improve the sector’s contribution to the economy even further.

“As with all Generator’s business support programmes, it is open to all artists, music and creative and digital businesses within the North East LEP area- Tyne and Wear, Northumberland and County Durham.

“If you feel you need to improve your businesses convergence within the digital world, contact us and we can assess what we can do for you.

“We use the very best developers to provide solutions to help you increase efficiency and reach new target markets.”

Generator’s Digital Literacy Programme will take individuals through intense digital literacy mentoring sessions of up to 12 hours over a one-month period.

The programme will run until the end of December 2018 and Generator will use the services of some of the North East’s very best web developers and digital marketers to help businesses increase their online efficiency and reach new target markets.

Jon Corbett, Managing Director of PR and marketing company JAC Media, is delighted to be involved: “We have an incredible mix of creative and digital companies in the North East and we want this programme to ensure that their online presence reflects that.,” he said.

“We hope that improving the digital presence and reach of local businesses will drive more traffic to their websites and in turn increase business and revenue.”
