Digital Main Street

London’s Digital Service Squad

Main street small businesses manage their operations with limited time, funds, and knowledge of digital tools and techniques. This challenges their ability to seize the opportunities that the new online business environment presents. Today, digital capabilities are the key component businesses need to succeed in an increasingly competitive, global, and volatile market.
The Digital Service Squad program is a smart, efficient way to help businesses adopt and expand their digital capabilities at no cost to them. Since October, London’s Digital Service Squad has visited BIA member businesses throughout London to offer free assistance to upgrade their online presence.
London’s Digital Service Squad has provided one-on-one assistance which includes:
  • Support for basic website set-up
  • Google My Business profiles
  • 360 degree photos for your business
  • Digital Storefront set-up with e-commerce
  • Creation and enhancement of social media presence
  • …and much more!
