Design-Nation is a portfolio of some of the most acclaimed and innovative designers and craftspeople in the UK.

Elliot is professional and extremely knowledgeable, but also approachable and flexible. Nothing is too much trouble. He has helped to demystify SEO and LinkedIn for the groups of designer-makers that I work with, allowing them to make significant progress with their marketing activities. Elliot has a good understanding of the creative brain and recognised the barriers that our groups would encounter, suggesting solutions and approaches that could help them.

I absolutely would recommend Business Think Digital. Elliot has an effective way of explaining information in a clear and understandable way, with extreme patience! When working with a group, he goes the extra mile to ensure that everyone understands the information and instructions that are being presented, offering extra support between sessions for anyone who is struggling. Elliot has a genuine interest in those he is working with, and this creates a warm and welcoming environment for training sessions.

Delivering Marketing Training for Business Support Organisations
I was introduced to Design-Nation by a creative business that had a new Shopify website built. Since that time, online workshops in a variety of disciplines have been delivered to groups of their members, including Search Engine Optimisation, Mailchimp, and LinkedIn marketing. These workshops typically involve up to fifteen attendees on Zoom, and the two sessions are a combined total of four hours in duration. Written guidance is provided to enable these new skills to be applied after the training. Attendee feedback has always been excellent, exceeding 90 percent in both usefulness and ability to apply the new learning.

Over a twenty-year period, Business Think has successfully delivered online marketing training in collaboration with many business support organisations and membership bodies, both private and publicly funded. Examples include Local Enterprise Partnerships, Growth Hub, Economic Development Units at Councils, Universities, Chambers of Commerce, Superfast, Cultivator and more. 

In the case of Design-Nation, the session material was tailored to their audience (creatives) and real examples of business success were used throughout the workshops. If you are a membership or business support organisation, please email for more details.
