Entrepreneurs and start-ups
We offer a two day ‘start-up weekend’. The first day will explore how to start a business and develop your value proposition. The second day will help you to develop a Business Model Canvas. The start-up weekends will take place on the following dates:
Are you looking for digital marketing support for your business? Would your business benefit from an improved online presence?
The workshops will be held over three half-day sessions designed to give you both a broad understanding of the world of digital marketing and, most importantly, a series of strategies and tactics to use in marketing your business. These workshops will improve your performance and help you optimise the digital channels available.
Workshop 1: Online brand development, customer segmentation and the tactics needed to communicate with them. Intensive digital marketing skills and techniques development.
Workshop 2: What to do on social media, pay per click, search engine optimisation, website content, e-mail, affiliates and reviews.
Workshop 3: Digital planning, tactics and implementation. How to avoid pitfalls and maximise every penny spent on digital marketing.
Each workshop will include lunch and refreshments.
Due to the interactive nature of the sessions, you will be required to commit and attend all 3 sessions to work through the concepts for your business. You will not benefit sufficiently by attending individual sessions therefore places will be allocated to those businesses which can attend all 3 workshops. Additionally, the numbers are restricted to 10 attendees per session, therefore places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. A reserve list will be made in case of any cancellations.
For further information on the workshops please email: email@example.com
Our team will work with you to access the expertise and knowledge required to help you grow your business.
