Digital Kitbag, run by Johnston Press, offers fully integrated digital marketing solutions for local businesses keen to reach an online audience for the first time or ensure their business website is unique and has stand out.

Now, Digital Kitbag has launched a free online ‘knowledge base’ – a store of information - which is packed with helpful advice and tips and which can be accessed by any company looking for help in how to market their business to an online audience.

The knowledge base has everything from short blog articles on popular topics to comprehensive downloadable guides, providing tips and walk-throughs to help small businesses succeed with their digital marketing efforts.

James Adams, Head of Marketing for Digital Kitbag, said: “Digital marketing can seem like a daunting prospect for SMEs but with a little help and guidance there are many things that a local business can do quickly and which will drastically increase their chances of being found online and attracting more customers.

“For example, just by creating a Google+ Local page, businesses can be found in more local internet searches and drive many more people to their business.

“All the advice is geared specifically towards local businesses and we’re hoping to see many take advantage of this free resource.”
