Workshops

Choose from a range of marketing workshops, depending on what you need to achieve:

  • Your marketing is not getting the results you want it to and you’re not sure why
  • You need to understand marketing better – regardless of your role
  • Your marketing team needs a refresher, or they’re taking on more work & need some guidance
  • You’ve always understood marketing, but something’s not quite adding up
  • You have a general manager who needs to take on marketing responsibilities as well as everything else!
  • You just want to check that you’re on the right track
  • You need a confidence boost (!)
  • You’re curious about marketing…

It’s rare to find a marketing agency willing to teach you what they know. But we will .

Our Workshops

fun, interactive workshops

Rather than take a typical ‘classroom approach’ and talk at you, our workshops are limited to a maximum of 20 people and are fully interactive.  We can also arrange one to ones, if you prefer.

Our aim is that you leave the session feeling confident about the subject, having learnt something new and knowing how you can use it to improve your marketing.

The following workshops are popular subjects and form the core of our offering although we have delivered other workshops as well.  If there is a subject you’re interested in that is not covered here, please let us know and we may well either have it on file, or would be happy to develop it.

Making Sense of Social Media

Making sense of it!

What’s it all about? Why is it so popular? How does it work? How can I use it to drive sales?  If these are familiar questions, then this workshop will help provide the answers.

We introduce social media, put it into context, discuss how Twitter, Facebook, Linked In and blogging can work for business – and we take away the fear!  You’ll leave this half day workshop with an understanding of what is right for your company and you’ll know how to apply it.

“You have removed all fear of embarking on this change! Thanks for a really informative session” Kerry, Business Adviser

“The day delivered exactly what was needed; an overview of what is out there, how it works, how it works together and how the different channels should be used. I thought Louise was a natural presenter, and encouraged the group discussions well. For me it took away a lot of the mystique of social media.” Peter, multinational publishing company, Hampshire

Next dates: 13 September, Bognor Regis (tailored for charities) & 24 October, Southampton
