Pro Bono Business Development & Marketing
Top O Top organise workshops, seminars and training courses in local internet cafes to sensitise and empower users with the latest web technologies such as WEB 2.0, Open Source, YouTube and social networks such as AliBaba, TripAdvisor, Twitter and Facebook
We provide web design & internet marketing skills, resources and advice to Gambian owned and managed internet cafes to help them educate their customers on the online business opportunities that are available.
We have evolved into a multi purpose business centre from simply offering public access to e-mail, internet browsing, word processing, photocopying and printing to full digital business support services such as copy writing, web design, internet marketing and social media campaigns.
Jobs have been created and the experience gained in setting up the centre has opened other markets. The centre also offers free technical support to help evaluate local IT needs and requirements.
Online Business Centres in The Gambia
“Computer & Internet Training Workshops” are the key components of a particularly effective educational program in The Gambia aiming to help bridge an ever-widening gap in computer and Internet utilisation between African and Western nations.
Staff at the centre give hands-on training and exposure to IT through regular workshops and classes that are open to all.
More advanced workshops have been held in 2017 to help increase local understanding of the marketing and business opportunities available on the internet within the export and tourism sectors.
Leaders of local trade and welfare organisations have also been invited to collate all relevant information and systems of best practice have been introduced to turn this raw material into effective marketing websites.
