Rocketspark chief executive Grant Johnson says: "The workshops and seminars are designed to cater for beginners through to those with some existing knowledge, who want to upskill in particular areas."
General manager of the Hamilton Central Business Association, Vanessa Williams, says the pandemic is far from over, so businesses need to start thinking about this.
Hamilton City Council's transformation manager Aileen Carlisle agrees: "A digital presence is essential for businesses to be sustainable in this challenging environment."
She highlights the council's interest for Hamilton to be a city where people thrive.
"So, we want to create opportunities to make sure Hamilton is an attractive place for businesses to succeed. Initiatives like the Digital Pop-up just do that."
Seminars are free to attend while two-hour workshops are $99. Businesses also have the opportunity to get one-on-one advice as there will also be a drop-in marketing and website help desk.
