Uttlesford District Council is offering businesses free weekly training sessions and webinars on how to get the most out of social media.

In partnership with Maybe Tech, the council is providing 500 firms with access to advice and support, including analysis on their Instagram, Facebook and Twitter posts, so they can reach more customers and increase sales.

According to recent research, independent stores across the UK have reduced their social media use at exactly the same time consumers have dramatically increased the amount of time they spend on it.
