Surrey Board of Trade Launches Digital Marketing Academy

Today, the Surrey Board of Trade has launched a free Digital Marketing Academy with Blue Meta for
businesses to receive a digital care package. Blue Meta is a strategic marketing agency and, together
with the Surrey Board of Trade, has developed this digital care package that will provide businesses with
tools to leverage digital assets to focus on bottom line results.

“The pandemic has changed the means in which we do business,” said Anita Huberman, CEO, Surrey
Board of Trade. “It has forced businesses to transition operations online in order to survive, but
businesses need help – free help, without the red tape of applying to receive support.”

This digital care package is designed to help support businesses who are trying to move their business
online but do not currently have the digital expertise. All businesses, though, can benefit from this

With the support of Western Economic Diversification funding, entrepreneurs and their teams can build
their confidence in social media, e-commerce and online advertising. With 15+ hours of great content,
here are some of the features of the digital care package:
● An introduction to social media marketing
● Facebook for business
● Instagram for business
● LinkedIn for business
● Top marketing tools for business
● Building your first Shopify ecommerce store
● Running profitable Google search ads


While participants complete the modules, the Surrey Board of Trade will also ask participants to consider applying for the
recently announced BC Government Grant of up to $7,500 that will help create or improve the
online presence for a business.
