Northern Ohio Digital Connect

Connecting with customers online is more important now than ever

The Digital Connect program is designed to help entrepreneurs expand their customer base and services by strengthening their online presence.  To help more entrepreneurs in Northern Ohio adapt to the ever-changing business landscape, Huntington National Bank, FirstEnergy and the Women’s Business Center of Northern Ohio developed Northern Ohio Digital Connect.


You’ll be guided through strategies and tactics to grow your online connection with customers and maximize the value of your digital communication channels. 


Upon complete the program, graduates will have an understanding of:

  • The basics of branding, slogans and logo

  • How to create and manage their own website through Wix

  • Graphic design basics from Canva

  • Social media best practices 


In addition, one-on-one advising will be offered to each participant, to be scheduled with the advisor or consultant between the class schedule. The class will rotate being held virtually one week and in-person the next. We ask that applicants have a basic understanding of how to work a computer for the virtual sessions.
