UK Small Businesses to Benefit From Go and Grow Online Initiative

Verisign is proud to announce that we are a sponsor of Enterprise Nation’s Go and Grow Online initiative that aims to encourage more businesses in the UK to get online and support existing online businesses to grow their online presence.

The UK is home to over 4.9 million small businesses, but surprising findings from the Lloyds Bank Digital Business Index suggests that 50 percent of small firms still don’t have a website, with 1.7 million having a low digital understanding and capability. The report calculates that by optimizing digital technology, UK firms could unlock £18.8 billion in incremental revenue growth.

The Go and Grow Online initiative hopes to help small businesses get the expertise and tools they need to make the most of digital opportunities through regular events, access to expert advice, ongoing communications and online resources covering topics like The Small Business Owner’s Guide to Social Media and Payment Tools for Your Online Store.

In addition to the helpful Go and Grow Online resources, you can also get helpful tips for how to get online and grow and improve your web presence from the Verisign online resource center.
