‘If your brand is not on digital venues, it does not exist’
Women supported through the initiative inspire others by their success stories in training and creating own brands. Naz Teker, a participant in the new term of the project, expressed that they acquired different perspectives on digital marketing through the interactive training and said: “We learned how to differently view those enterprises which started and failed, and how to improve such enterprises. If your brand is not on digital venues, it does not exist.” Selling sustainable, hand-made home decoration products under her brand Palp Studio, Ms. Teker also noted that training programmes were a great treasure that contained information to guide particularly small enterprises.
Having reached 8,000 women to date through the training on digital literacy and digital marketing, ‘Life is Easy in Digital’ aims to train 10,000 women in 81 provinces.
To receive mentoring and grant support, women entrepreneurs can apply by 15 October by filling out this form.
