In a bid to help small and medium businesses in India go digital, global web-hosting and Cloud company GoDaddy on Wednesday announced it has trained over 700 web professionals across Pune, Jaipur, Kochi and Ahmedabad.
The aim is to equip web professionals and local resellers with the right online tools, knowledge and skills they need to help grow their ventures online, the company said in a statement. “Supporting our customers in India, with increased training and support, and being available to help them create and grow their online presence for their business, has always been a key element of our value proposition,” said Nikhil Arora, Managing Director and Vice President, GoDaddy India.
The web professionals received extensive education on how to amplify their business, develop and upgrade their skills, while accessing GoDaddy resources to help create and manage an effective digital presence for small business clients. “The GoDaddy training offered new tools and solutions to help me better serve my clients and more efficiently manage my web development business,” said Kailash Chand Saini, Director, RCV Web Solutions, Jaipur.
According to GoDaddy, which has over 1 million customers in India, the next wave of small businesses will rely heavily on web designers and developers. “In a growing market like India, web developers and designers are interested in learning new processes with new tools to help manage their clients, while at the same time ensuring quality and expanding their business,” said Arora.
