Change, in fact, is a core value at nine10. We have always looked to how we can innovate, improve, and transform ourselves into what the market needs.
In 2019, when the COVID-19 pandemic hit, businesses around the world were forced to change. And while digital marketing and online skills have always been important, businesses recognized the heightened importance of bringing these skills in-house more than they ever have.
We recognized the challenges business will face early on and quickly re-aligned ourselves to provide support for businesses during this time. Through a partnership with the City of Grande Prairie, County of Grande Prairie, Community Futures and the Grande Prairie & District Chamber of Commerce, a Business Resiliency Task-Force was formed to address the challenges small businesses would face in this new climate.
Through this collaboration, nine10 developed a new educational curriculum to help teach businesses the skills they need to stay relevant in this new socially-distanced world. This was the seed that sparked our training division, and ultimately, the Digital Marketing Bootcamp.
Of course, we still continue to design brands and build websites for our clients as well. But it’s not enough to just build and then hand off materials. We must teach, show, and guide our clients how to use what has been built, so they can be more self-sufficient and get the most value out of their investment.
We look forward to sharing our knowledge with you. Be sure to learn about our branding, website, and training services, take some time to meet our team, and reach out to us if you have questions or need help.
