123-reg (the UK’s largest domain registrar) are sending a team of experts around the UK in July & August to encourage small business users to get online and to register their new .uk domain name. All the events are free.
In their words “As well as promoting the new shorter .uk domain name, the events will focus on essential core digital skills including online marketing, social media, networking tips and advice on increasing website conversions.”
The venues in addition to today’s Newcastle Racecourse (NE35HP) are:
- 30 July Leeds: Electric Press, 3 Millennium Square, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS2 3AD
- 6 August Cardiff: St.David’s Hotel, Havannah Street Cardiff Wales, CF10 5SD
- 12 August London: Canary Wharf, Bank Street Level 32, 40 Bank Street London E14 5NR
To book a place simply email them firstname.lastname@example.org or we guess you could simply just turn up!
Win 1 – “At each event, we will be offering our attendees the chance to win a Merlin Annual Pass. The pass allows you free entry into over 30 UK attractions for a whole year, including Thorpe Park, Alton Towers, Legoland, Madame Tussauds, SEA life locations and many more. All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning is post a picture of your day at the event to Twitter using #UKtour – it’s that simple!”
Win 2 – “As well as our roadshow events, we plan to stop off at plenty of brilliantly British locations to get plenty of snaps of our special .uk branded campervan. At each location we will tweet a picture of our campervan asking you to tell us where you think we are. Those who guess correctly will be entered into a prize draw to win a £50 John Lewis voucher! Remember to use our roadshow hashtag, #UKtour, or you won’t be included in the draw!”
And of course the real win is get all the info available at the events and then get online if you’re not already there!
