Digital Promotion Part 1


02/11/2021 - 09:00 - 12:00


Online - Pre-Recorded

Delivered by Justin Jackson and Francesca Granelli  - Digital Remit

This session has a follow up Digital Promotion Part 2 on Tue 9th Nov and there is a live session via zoom on Mon 15th Nov where you can meet the facilitators and ask questions about any of the session materials.


What will we cover?

The workshop looks at many kinds of digital promotion, so it starts by mapping out the terrain using the popular PESO framework.

It then emphasises the importance of setting SMART, SMARTER, or SMARTEST objectives so you can evaluate the success of any campaign and determine the return on your investment – because digital promotion inevitably costs time, even if no money changes hands. For this reason, we consider analytics across each different channel.

We start by looking at online advertising, the options available, and the different ways to pay for it.  The discussion also looks at sophisticated targeting methods to maximise the return on your investment – and whether these come up against data protection rules,

We then move on to search engine optimisation and identify the three key elements – content, technology, and exposure – before taking a ‘deep dive’ into each. We end by looking at the appropriate division of labour: what to do yourself and what to outsource?

It is then time for email marketing, with a look at how to build your list and watch for various warning signs. The group considers how to write appealing copy before ending with a look at some of the advanced tools now available.

What will I learn?

how to identify the different kinds of digital promotion
the best way for your firm to advertise online and how to target your audiences
the three elements of SEO and where you need help
building up and retaining a mailing list with appealing newsletters
the pros and cons of social media and the various networks
why it pays to manage your links and domains – and how to do so
whether to invest in third party tools to assist your digital promotion.


Who should attend?

Any entrepreneur, director, or manager who is keen to promote their business online.
