Relaunch of Need it Find it North Devon Business Directory

Often things turn full circle and that’s happened with Need it Find it.

Originally this web site was created as an online business directory to support a monthly printed advertising leaflet produced for Bideford and then developments led to the creation of the BBxpo business exhibition and now Business Action, the independent bi-monthly business magazine distributed across North Devon.

Magazine and online listing for £30 a year

Now Need it Find it is running in conjunction with classified business listings in Business Action.

For £30 a year businesses receive:

  • BOTH a business listing with their contact details in six issues of Business Action magazine

All other Business Action Plans include classified magazine and web site listings as well as magazine listings.

The Google Digital Garage is one of Google’s flagship investment programmes in the UK, where anyone can come and learn free digital skills through a range of courses or 1:1 sessions. Since launching the Google Digital Garage in 2015, over 300,000 people have benefitted from Google’s free face-to-face training on digital know-how across 250 locations in the UK. 

Two courses will be available at BBxpo, where visitors can stay as little or as long as they like:

Build Your Personal Brand Online – Learn to identify your brand, build and protect your online presence, and share content to your network

Get Your Business Visible on Google – Get your business visible on Google Maps and Search. 

BBxpo co-organiser Alan Williams said: “The Google Digital Garage visiting North Devon is a great opportunity for business people to gain new skills and knowledge. As we are so remote, digital branding and communication are vital for reaching more customers and fulfilling business potential. These sessions will be invaluable for anyone determined to grow their business.”   

Ronan Harris, Google UK & Ireland managing director, said: “In the digital age, a basic understanding of how the online world works is useful and when it comes to business, it’s essential. We are delighted to bring the Google Digital Garage to North Devon and ensure everyone has access to free digital skills workshops and 1:1 coaching. We hope you’ll pop in and get the skills you need to become more confident online, grow your career or business, and maybe even launch the next big idea.”
