SMALL businesses are being offered free consultations to improve their online presence.
Nettl, a new network of web design studios, is looking to support up to 500 firms in Fareham.
Sales and marketing director Ricky Whiting said: ‘Our clients tell us they know they need to sell online, but find it difficult knowing where to start.
‘They hear about how expensive web development is and worry that they are going to get ripped off.
‘It’s Nettl’s mission to remove the mystery surrounding e-commerce and help small businesses to just start selling online.’
The support has come after it was reported by the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills that two million sole traders and small companies missed out on Cyber Weekend online sales.
With a greater number missing out on the last minute rush for Christmas presents and the January sales.
