Whether you’re getting ready to pitch your idea, launch a startup, or grow your existing company, you need to know how to communicate what you’re doing and spread your message effectively. Marketing isn't just for big companies.
If you're a startup trying to gain customers or if you're an entrepreneur with just an idea, it's the same – it’s all about communicating what you have to others. 'Marketing' can be anything from making sure good copy is on your website to mailers to posting messages or ads on your social media channels to verbally pitching your idea to a potential partners or investors. Doing at least some form of marketing – wherever you are in your company's development – has become critical in determining your future success.
But what's the best approach for where you are now?
How do you best communicate your message and what and where should that message be?
How do the latest digital trends affect your business?
Should you use Facebook Ads? Google AdWords? Or?
How can you effectively use marketing to grow and what can you do with a budget?
Which methods will maximize your efforts with social media campaign?
What role will search engine optimization (SEO) play in all of this and how can you stand out from potential competitors?
Our marketing experts will cover all of this and more at this unique event.
