#GetDigital is a regional initiative supported by Whanganui, Rangitikei and South Taranaki District Councils, with more councils in the region looking likely to follow.

The campaign, set to run over the next three years, provides businesses in the regions with tools, events and resources aimed at helping them get online and more digitally engaged.

At the centre of the campaign is the AboutUs small business platform, which after a successful trial in Whanganui is now being rolled out to the other districts around the region.

AboutUs provides businesses with a free web presence, digital resources and local coverage of success stories, all aimed at boosting their online profile. With an estimated 60% of small businesses having no web presence at all, AboutUs provides businesses with the crucial first step on an ongoing online journey.
