How Business Gateway has helped

Reface Scotland approached Business Gateway and utilised the DigitalBoost project in order to help the business move away from more traditional forms of advertising, towards a new focus on digital marketing.

In addition to one-to-one support from an expert digital advisor, DigitalBoost supported Reface Scotland’s successful application for a Broadband Voucher, carried out a Digital Healthcheck of the business to assess their online performance and implemented a strategy to improve digital marketing understanding amongst Reface Scotland’s directors.

Jacqueline Tomlinson, Company Director at Reface Scotland, commented: “Our DigitalBoost advisor helped establish the requirements for our new ecommerce website and helped us to progress with our digital marketing strategy and further IT investments.

"Following the support from Business Gateway and DigitalBoost, we are in much better position to use our new knowledge and skills to expand our online presence. I am confident that our focus on digital advertising, combined with the new website, will result in significant benefits for the future growth and competitivity of Reface Scotland.”
