Toulon helps its traders on their digital journeys

Being able to reopen your store is very good, but making yourself visible and known on web and social networks, especially in this particular period, is even better. This is why the City of Toulon has decided to support local trade players in their digitalization efforts.

The City has made every effort, from the first lockdown, to lighten certain charges, share useful information and encourage “local consumption”. In the recent days, a new milestone has been reached: the time has come for “practical work” for traders who request it.

You can indeed sell quality products, be unbeatable on their composition or their origin, know more than anyone about their specificities and not be comfortable in their enhancement elsewhere than in your window. This is where the service providers, delegated by the City of Toulon, can intervene in concrete terms: whether in terms of website creation (for those who do not yet have one), improvement of referencing, better control of social networks or merchant sites, a complete analysis and in the end, proposing adequate solutions.

The financial aid is available for a lot of things: the City subsidizes, for example, up to 40% of digital investments (creation of a website), offers personalized coaching sessions (at the point of remoted sales) and group training directly and remotely, by an expert consultant. Furthermore, the City also allows three months of free referencing on the digital platform, which lists the businesses in Toulon.
