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.
