***Book now for Intro to Facebook on 15 April at Quy Mill Hotel***
Are you a small business, one-man-band or freelancer looking for help in boosting your Facebook, Twitter and Instagram channels, expert tips in blogging, or ideas for how you can use digital marketing to reach your customers more effectively?
Kicking off in January 2017 we're running a series of monthly workshops to offer just this type of support.
- Saturday 14 January, 1pm to 4pm. Introduction to digital marketing
- Saturday 11 February, 1pm to 4pm. Better blogging
- Saturday 11 March, 1pm to 4pm. Twitter. Better!
- Thursday 30 March, 1pm to 4pm. Introduction to digital marketing.
- Saturday 15 April, 1pm to 4pm. Intro to Facebook
A fun, practical workshop with lots of tips to help you use Facebook more effectively. Find out about social media advertising, using groups and offering content that people will like, comment upon, and share.
But as well as helping you, we do have an ulterior motive!
Sue is running the London Marathon to raise money for the Arthur Rank Hospice Charity, who were so kind and caring to her Mum when she passed away in December 2014.
She's going to be running the workshops in her spare time, with all the money going towards her fundraising effort.
Who are the workshops for?
Called 'Digital marketing on the run', (with the hashtag #RunDMSue) they will be introductory level training sessions, specifically aimed at SMEs, charities and freelancers who want to get to grips with digital marketing, Facebook, Twitter and blogging.
As a business we mostly focus on very bespoke training for larger organisations, but we do get a steady flow of queries from smaller businesses looking for support. So we hope there will be plenty of you out there who will find the workshops useful.
In these Saturday afternoon group workshops you'll be able to ask all the 'silly' questions you like, try out new tools and techniques, and hopefully come away feeling a lot more confident in digital marketing.
Where will they be held?
14 January, 11 February, 11 March: Central Working, Unit 6-8, Cambridge Science Park CB4 0FZ. We are indebted to Central Working and Lucy Woods at Cambridge Wireless for helping us sort the venue!
30 March: Allia Future Business Centre, Peterborough United Football Club, London Rd, Peterborough PE2 8AN.
15 April: Quy Mill Hotel & Spa, Church Road, Stow-cum-Quy, Cambridge, CB259AF.
How can you book?
There will be five sessions, £25 each. Visit the Eventbrite page to book. Unfortunately they add a £1.64 booking fee on top - sorry about that.
To book onto the Peterborough workshop, visit the event page on Meetup.
If you'd like to donate more - great! Just go to the JustGiving page.
How can you donate?
Of course, you don't have to come to the workshops to support Sue's fundraising efforts. Please visit her page on JustGiving and help her reach her goal of £2000+, all of which will go towards this incredible charity and help provide the same level of care to others in the community.
