Rural Businesses Learn Importance of Blogging


Participants of the Business Technology Acceleration Program received training in WordPress, the industry standard for blogging, to create a website with blog capacity. Training covered how to use a website to professionally expand the marketability of a business and ways to earn money online. The training was led by Scott Wild of Wild Inspire, Inc. out of Bismarck.

The June workshop is the fourth of six technology trainings being held in Southwest North Dakota by Center for Technology & Business (CTB). Local businesses in Bowman and Dickinson are benefitting from these hands on workshops made possible by a Rural Business Opportunity Grant CTB received from USDA Rural Development, with local programming support from the Strom Center and Bowman County Development Corporation.

Thanks to the grant, CTB was also able to purchase a mobile technology lab featuring Microsoft Surface tablets that aides in providing the hands on training of essential business technologies to the participants.

Participants also had the opportunity to win great door prizes thanks to the Microsoft Community Connections program.

There are two workshops left and local businesses can still register for just $10 per class.

July: Virtual IT and Cloud Usage with Northriver IT
August: Mobile POS Systems and Accepting Electronic Payments with Center for Technology & Business
